The Good Thief by Hannah Tinti
Twelve year old orphan Ren has been trying to solve the mystery of his missing left hand. When a man named Benjamin Nab takes him out of Saint Anthony’s orphanage claiming to be his brother, the adventure begins. The brothers journey through costal New England of the past meeting scam artists, grave robbers, a secretive dwarf, an old fashioned scary dentist, an evil industrialist and of course more petty thieves just like Ren himself.
