Synopsis: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.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.
Heist Society was just wow. I had heard some amazing things on it and around December I already had plans to buy it. This book was just amazing. I love the Ghallager Girl books so I wasnt expecting a plain boring story. But this was beyond my expectations. I was just beyond impressed. Ally Carter really outdid herself writing this book. She really put her heart and sole into Heist Society. I was thoroughly impressed. This story had great characters to fall in love with and a great villain to enjoy hating. It was the perfect adventure novel. Most people would think that she wouldnt be able to make a good book about something other than spies. She did. she really showed all of us that her comfort zone isnt good enough for her, and shes willing to go outside of it.
