'Thief' revolves around twelve-year-old Lydia Henson, for whom trouble begins when her family move to Tarwich in Yorkshire and she changes school. After refusing to take the initiation test of a girl's gang, which was to take a sports cup and hide it in her locker for a day, Lydia herself is accused of stealing the cup when it is found in her locker the next day. Her best friend Frankie abandons her for Anne, her spiteful former best friend and Lydia's enemy. She also suffers at the hands of a large number of school bullies, who are never seen by the teachers.
