Welcome to the tyrannical city of Jewel, where impatience is a sin and boldness is a crime.Goldie Roth has lived in Jewel all her life. Like every child in the city, she wears a silver guardchain and is forced to obey the dreaded Blessed Guardians. She has never done anything by herself and won’t be allowed out on the streets unchained until Separation Day. When Separation Day is canceled, Goldie, who has always been both impatient and bold, runs away, risking not only her own life but also the lives of those she has left behind. In the chaos that follows, she is lured to the mysterious Museum of Dunt, where she meets the boy Toadspit and discovers terrible secrets. Only the cunning mind of a thief can understand the museum’s strange, shifting rooms. Fortunately, Goldie has a talent for thieving. Which is just as well, because the leader of the Blessed Guardians has his own plans for the museum—plans that threaten the lives of everyone Goldie loves. And it will take a daring thief to stop him.... Museum of Thieves is a thrilling tale of destiny and danger, and of a courageous girl who has never been allowed to grow up—until now.

Asked too much of me
- Katherine "I'm the managing editor of the Fantasy Literature blog. Life's too short to read bad books!"
shared this book with my 8yr old we both loved it
To be honest claudia blacks performance. The only reason I purchased the book. I was pleasantly surprised that I enjoyed the book for itself too as did my 8 yr old. She has a renewed love for books now :)
The characters. Always the characters for me. Goldie was well written and the story set up so she is an easy character to relate to and support and want to find out what's happening. I enjoyed the setting in particular the way the towns views on children came about and setting up goldie by her childhood raised in such a different way
They were all amazing every character it sounded like ten different narrators. The accents and voices were superb.
No. I enjoyed listening little by little with my 8 yr old and discussing with her the themes and characters.
My 8 yr old loved this. I think it's aimed at a bit older kids. I was surprised how much she engaged with the story and the way she pointed things out to me ! She is quite intelligent for her age and some of the things she didn't understand but we talked about and she really enjoyed it. We found it by accident. I bought it as I love claudia black and by accident found a book to share and renew my child's love of reading. Unlike many books I share with the kids this one was engaging and entertaining for me too.
