Cat Burglar Black by Richard Sala
This was a fun graphic. There wasn't a whole lot to it, really. The orphanage K grew up was run by a thief and taught them all how to steal stuff (kind of like Oliver Twist), and then she is brought to this school and finds out her father was one of The Obtainers, which K finds very upsetting, of course as she's always pictured her deceased parents as wonderful upstanding citizens. It also turns out that her father might not be dead at all, but rather "disappeared" years ago. The book ends abruptly, so I'm sure there will be sequels coming.
It was light and fun and a great choice for younger middle grade who like mystery.
