Review of Heist Society - Hale Stole My Heart

Wednesday, 3 December 2014
Hello Fellow Book Lovers,

This review is spoiler-filled for the November 2014 read along book of the month, Heist Society. My spoiler-free review can be found here.

Book: Heist Society
Author: Ally Carter
Publisher: Hyperion
Genre: Young Adult, Crime, Contemporary
Rating: 5/5 Stars

Summary: 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.

Review: If I had one word to describe this book, it would be Hale.

Seriously, he is pretty close to being the ultimate fictional boyfriend.

What can I say, this book is absolutely fantastic from the way it is set up to that ending when they framed the bad guy. And that doesn't even begin to cover how awesome Kat is.

If I was in her place, I would probably have tripped and fell on my face trying to run of the Henley because I know that I wouldn't have been able to pull of that kind of heist. Or any heist, for that matter.

Again, the fabulous writing that keeps you coming back for more and the action-adventure that keeps you on the edge of your seat kept me reading until the very last page, at which point I automatically picked up the next book, Uncommon Criminals. It is also very good and I highly recommend it if you enjoyed this book.

Don't forget that we are reading Perfect Ruin this month and I will see you all soon!
