When Katarina Bishop was three, her parents took her on a trip to the Louvre…to case it. For her seventh birthday, Katarina and her Uncle Eddie traveled to Austria…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.I am a huge, huge, huge fan of the Gallagher Girl series and when I heard of Heist Society, I knew I had to read it. I don't know what it is about this book, but I didn't enjoy it as much as the Gallagher Girl series. This book was a bit confusing in my opinion.
Soon, Kat's friend and former co-conspirator, Hale, appears out of nowhere to bring Kat back into the world she tried so hard to escape. But he has a good reason: a powerful mobster has been robbed of his priceless art collection and wants to retrieve it. 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 history--and, with any luck, steal her life back along the way.
Kat was a great character, although a big vague. Of course, Miss Carter kept you guessing and whatnot, which made this book a very fun one. Hale, oh my goodness, Hale. Swoon. I love, love, loved his character. Hot? Yes! Anyway, this book was great. The plot was very intriguing, especially because I love spy books. It was thrilling and entertaining and the Kat/Hale relationship was just too adorable.
Despite my frequent confusion and my want for it to be a bit more straightforward, this book was a good read! Check it out!
