Included in the CBC's October 2022 Hot Off the Press reading list

"A cute queer graphic novel set in France during the last year of high school...What follows is a charming coming-of-age story with lovely, emotive illustrations."

"Such a sweet and funny story with complex, flawed characters that you can't help but love."
--Alice Oseman, creator of Heartstopper

"With distinctive characters, lush art, and an off-kilter sapphic romance at its core, this will surely steal teen readers' hearts."

"Bryon renders both characters and backgrounds in lovely, lithe manga art, capturing the sheen of wealthy abodes and populated party scenes, as well as small gestures and moments between the lovebirds...This energizing work from a rising comics talent has YA crossover appeal."
--STARRED REVIEW, Publishers Weekly

"Thieves is a rambunctious, charming story about high schoolers partying, falling in love, and committing acts of reverse larceny. The drawing style is incredibly appealing, with delightful acting and visual jokes that make this an absolute pleasure to read."
--Molly Knox Ostertag, creator of The Witch Boy series and The Girl From the Sea

"Reading Thieves is like going on a decidedly queer adventure - full of heart, tension, beauty, and so much love. Add in to that the gorgeous art, and you've got yourself a truly wonderful book."
--Tillie Walden, creator of Are You Listening and Spinning

"Lucie Bryon brings shōjo manga-inspired artwork to this queer high school romance."
--Library Journal

"Our favorite graphic novel this year."
--Comix Experience

"A celebration of being queer and being a teenager full of antics to keep you entertained!"
--Shelves of Starlight
