Story Thieves

A hilarious, action-packed series launches with a story-within-a-story, from the bestselling author of the Half Upon a Time trilogy.

Life is boring when you live in the real world, instead of starring in your own book series. Owen knows that better than anyone, what with the real world’s homework and chores.

But everything changes the day Owen sees the impossible happen—his classmate Bethany climb out of a book in the library. It turns out Bethany’s half-fictional and has been searching every book she can find for her missing father, a fictional character.

Bethany can’t let anyone else learn her secret, so Owen makes her a deal: All she has to do is take him into a book in Owen’s favorite Kiel Gnomenfoot series, and he’ll never say a word. Besides, visiting the book might help Bethany find her father…

…Or it might just destroy the Kiel Gnomenfoot series, reveal Bethany’s secret to the entire world, and force Owen to live out Kiel Gnomenfoot’s final (very final) adventure.

  1. Buy or Borrow (but Don’t Steal) This Story Real life is boring. That’s what Owen has decided, and he much prefers to live in the world of his favorite books, at least in his day dreams. And then he meets Bethany when he finds her crawling out of a book. Wait, what? Turns out she is half fictional and can jump into books. She’s spent years looking for her father, who disappeared into a book, and works very hard to stay out of the stories so no one learns about her abilities. 

  2. An Exciting, Literary Buddy Comedy/Adventure There’s an awful lot going on in this book, and it’s all good. (It might also send you to other James Riley books.)
