Heist Society

Author: Ally Carter

Summary: Been looking for the next female action hero? Here she is – meet Kat, a teen who has been raised in a family of thieves. As much as she wants to escape the life, it just won’t let her go. Now she has to pull off an almost impossible heist with her crew of teenage friends to save her father. Among her crew is Hale, her friend/romantic interest, Gabrielle, her cousin, and Simon, a teen tech whiz.

The really cool thing about this book, in my eyes, was how neatly Carter tied in a little history lesson without sounding preachy or boring. Integrating the story of the art lost during World War II into the novel gave it more depth and believability, and gave Carter an opening for more books about Kat and her quirky family.
