In five minutes, a hood will be placed on my head, then a noose draped around my neck, and the trapdoor will drop me to my death. Yes, I stole a scarf, now I die.
~ I’m Rumor, and I’m a thief.
This YA Dystopian tale isn’t as it seems. The School of the Seven Bells is filled with students we take from the orphans sector in middle of the night. We teach them the art of becoming a pickpocket. It is the only way to earn their admission to a real life in the borough. The borough is located on the other side of the forty-foot wall. We may break the law by stealing, but we’re doing it for the students to have something they never dreamed of. A real life, one with friends and family. I’m Trig, the headmaster of the school. Together with my right hand man Alaric, we will teach them how to read, how to fight, how to be a friend, and how to do the right thing. Most importantly, we teach them, if they’re caught, they’re to RUN FOR YOUR LIFE.
