Palmatier, Joshua -- The Skewed Throne

Compelling series opener. Loveable thief girl grows up wild on the streets, except none of that "loveable" crap. She's desperate, constantly on the brink of starvation, and good at stabbing things and running away. She has to learn to understand her magical talent (which, being totally uneducated, she narrates in a very idiosyncratic way) while finding allies (which are not the same as "a loving home and replacement parents").
