Book 71: Heist Society

Barnes and Noble's Description:

Written by: Ally Carter


When Katarina Bishop was three, her parents took her to the case it. For her seventh birthday, Katarina and her Uncle Eddie traveled to steal the crown jewels. When Kat turned fifteen, she planned a con of her own—scamming her way into the best boarding school in the country, determined to leave the family business behind. Unfortunately, leaving "the life" for a normal life proves harder than she'd expected.
Soon, Kat's friend and former co-conspirator, Hale, appears out of nowhere to bring her back into the world she tried so hard to escape. But he has good reason: a powerful mobster's art collection has been stolen, and he wants it returned. Only a master thief could have pulled this job, and Kat’s father isn’t just on the suspect list, he is the list. Caught between Interpol and a far more deadly enemy, Kat’s dad needs her help.
For Kat there is only one solution: track down the paintings and steal them back. So what if it’s a spectacularly impossible job? She’s got two weeks, a teenage crew, and hopefully just enough talent to pull off the biggest heist in her family’s (very crooked) history—and, with any luck, steal her life back along the way.

My Thoughts: This one was okay for me. It was a lot like Ally Carter's Gallagher Girl series which I sort of expected...maybe almost too much like them. I actually got bored midway through and it was sort of a challenge to continue reading. I know there is a second one that is coming out soon so I might try again. I don't know if it was the similarity with the Gallagher Girls or what but this wasn't one of my favorites.

My Grade: B
