The Boy Who Steals Houses

by C. G. Drews - £7.99  Hachette Children's Group (2019)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781408349922 | ISBN 10: 1408349922

Can two broken boys find their perfect home? By turns heartbreaking and heartwarming, this is a gorgeously told, powerful story.
 
Sam is only fifteen but he and his autistic older brother, Avery, have been abandoned by every relative he's ever known. Now Sam's trying to build a new life for them. He survives by breaking into empty houses when their owners are away, until one day he's caught out when a family returns home. To his amazement this large, chaotic family takes him under their wing - each teenager assuming Sam is a friend of another sibling. Sam finds himself inextricably caught up in their life, and falling for the beautiful Moxie.
 
But Sam has a secret, and his past is about to catch up with him.
