Product description

Review

I'm 100% positive I'm never going to get over this book.--A Whisper of Ink - blog

If this moving novel doesn't leave you in floods of tears you may not have a heart.--Claire Hennessey, The Irish Times

This was one heck of a ride and I can't say that you won't shed a few tears, but you'll also probably burst into laughter along the way too, but either way, it will all be worth it, because Sam's story deserves to be read...Ultimately, it was an unforgettable experience, so please don't deny yourself the opportunity to step into Sam's world and let his story be heard.--Muse of Nyxmares blog

5.0 out of 5 stars One of my favourite contemporary reads of all time!
By Bookbookowl on 6 June 2019
The Boy Who Steals Houses is a gender bent goldilocks retelling and it was one of those books where I didn't want to stop reading, but I didn't want to get to the end either, because I was NOT READY to say goodbye to the these characters!  They were amazing and flawed and REAL.  Sam's sense of responsibility for his brother, even though it often caused him pain was beautiful and I loved the way both sides of it were shown.  He wasn't a hero, he didn't pretend it was all roses, it was HARD but he did it anyway because he loved him.     Sam and Moxie (and Mr De Lainey!) are some of my new favourite characters ever.  I loved the way no-one was perfect, they all had challenges and had been shaped by their life experiences to react in different ways.  They make mistakes, they want, they're afraid, they feel like people you would actually meet.  I became so immersed in this story that I kind of had to remind myself it wasn't real.

This one had me going through all the emotions - it was sad and anxious but gave me feel good laughs in parts too.  I loved the way the De Lainey's family was so chaotic, and just how I imagine a huge family would be   It also made me eat a lot of food.  You've been warned.  There was a lot of eating and talk about delicious food and I wanted to JOIN IN, so I did. At every opportunity.  

The Boy Who Steals Houses will be sitting firmly at the top of my list as one of my favourite contemporary reads of all time!
