Safe Cracker

The lock artist by Steve Hamilton — is about a teen (Mike) who's famous for 2 things: 1) He can pick almost any lock. 2) He doesn’t talk. Ever. Not since something happened to him as a child (it’s even worse than you think). Rolling from one break-in to the next, and a life he desperately wants to escape, this book reads like a mafia movie and a heist movie all rolled into one. It's the romance with the girl, however, and the secret Mike carries, that gives it an emotional punch. A powerful underdog story if there ever was one. A fantastic book for older teens or adults.
