A teen fiction book without vampires, werewolves, or witches! This is the story of Ash, a teenage thief who plans to rob the richest man in the world. The problem is the government is sending an assassin to kill the same rich guy and the rich guy has some plans of his own. Very fun read. Once you accept the fact that the heroine is both a "super thief" AND a teenage girl, everything else is quite believable. Preteen and up.
