Heist Society

March 22, 2010 at 9:51 am Leave a comment

Kat Bishop has put her scamming, conning, and thieving ways behind her…by pulling the biggest con of her life.  She did what she had to do to gain admittance to the Colgan School and become just a normal girl, but unfortunately, Kat’s family never left the business. 

When a powerful Italian “businessman” (read: criminal) is robbed of five priceless paintings and Kat’s father becomes a suspect, Kat has no choice but to find the real thief, steal back the stolen paintings and clear her father’s name. 

This is the newest book from Ally Carter, who writes the Gallagher Girls series (“Cross My Heart and Hope to Spy”). It was a fun, fast paced, globe-trotting story that kept me reading to find out just how Kat planned to pull off a seemingly impossible job. It’s got class, it’s got wit, and it’s got cons with names like The Groundhog, Mary Poppins, and Five O’Clock Shadows. What more could you ask for?

Warner Bros. won the rights to make a “Heist Society” movie, but they’re making Kat and her friends in their twenties instead of teenagers.  Ugh!  I wish they were keeping them teens because the fact that they’re younger than the usual crew is part of what makes their cons impressive.  Read the book yourself and let me know if you agree.

Get the first chapter of “Heist Society” here, then come to the library to check out the rest.
