Lynne Bertrand


Lynne Bertrand’s first novel is CITY OF THE UNCOMMON THIEF. Her previous books, all picture books, include a Booklist  Editors’ Choice, and a New York Times Editors' Pick. Lynne's affinity for YA fiction prompted this novel, for as she says, to  be 13, 15, 17 is to be human times 10. "It’s a time of unprotected freedom, death, work, love. A good place for a writer."

In a place such as this unnamed city, once you let go and face the things that frighten you, you’re as gone as Odysseus was in his odyssey. You tie yourself to the mast or outsmart the Cyclops in the cave because how else are you going to get home?
