Heist Society by Ally Carter

Summary: When Kat Bishop was three, her parents took her on a trip to the Louvre...to case it. For her seventh birthday, Kat 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 her back into the world she tried so hard to escape. But he has 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.

My Thoughts: I'm a big fan of the Gallagher Girl series so wanted to give this one a try. I really liked it a lot. It has all the action I like and of course the characters! We meet Kat whose dad gets pegged for a art heist that she believes he is innocent of so she decides she will prove he's innocent by stealing the paintings back herself. I liked the characters. We meet her friend, Hale who is just hilarious. I loved his sense of humor, I loved him! The whole book I wanted him and Kat to get together! We also meet her family members. They all play a part in this book and work together! Honestly, I can't say much about this book without giving away EVERYTHING, and I hate to ruin plots so just go and read the book! If your a fan of GG you will enjoy this one! Kat and Hale make a good team, but does Kat have her eye on someone else? Is there a mysterious guy I'm not telling you about? Go read the book to find out!!!!

Overall: Really liked it a lot!!! Is there going to be a sequel?? I hope so!

Cover: Love it! Its gorgeous and totally fits! I can see Kat looking like that girl and her glasses are to die for!!!

I was a little nervous to read your review of this book because I keep passing it at the bookstore and my fingers are eagerly awaiting to close upon the book, but I have been waiting to clear out a little room on my bookshelf first. I didn't want to know if it was really good because then I would have to buy it, and if it was bad then I would be heart broken. Borders is still having its 30% off sale, so I guess I'm going to the bookstore soon.
