"Living in secret and stealing to eat is a hard life, but it's all Kuro has ever known. Fear and necessity forged him into the finest young thief in the wizard kingdoms. Nobody can hide forever, though, and a run of poor luck lands Kuro in a place where his quick hands and quiet feet count for nothing: Avalon Academy, school of magic.Out of his depth and unable to escape, can Kuro find a place among the other misfits at the school, or will his past return to ruin the one chance he has to leave his life in the shadows?"--Publisher's description.
I discovered this book when I was browsing Wattpad and started reading it. When I got the end of the chapters available, I found out that the book was available in full format in two very readily available ways. 1. I could purchase it from Amazon as an ebook for a friendly low price, but the author released it as a podcast where he read the book out chapter by chapter. I immediately accessed the podcast and thoroughly enjoyed listening to it that way.
Stealing from Wizards centers around a young boy named Kuro who lives with a mean master who orders him around to do errands for him as they live in a magical alley called Dertius Lane. Kuro is a thief, and he lives on the edges of a magical kingdom, and you can only hide so long. Before long, he ends up at Avalon Academy, a school of magic, and entirely out of his depth with no knowledge of magic or what to expect. If you missed Harry Potter and are looking for a new magical read, this one might be for you.
