Never Going Back is a thriller novella featuring Allison Kidd. Alison is an expert burglar who has just been released from prison after serving a year after being caught. She was not caught because of any error on her own account, but because her fence planted evidence against her. Now that she is free, her former fence has taken her brother hostage in order to compel her to steal again.

Never Going Back is a book designed to appeal to young readers. It is a fast and easy read. The story has a clever resolution. It is good its purpose, but too juvenile for this reader.

I received a copy of Never Going Back from the publisher through NetGalley
