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
There were many thoughts in my head after I finished Heist Society. One of them was how fast paced and fantastic the plot was. The action literally started in the first chapter and it never stopped. I was at the edge of my seat through out must of this book, wondering what was going to happen next. That was another really great thing about this book; it was not predictable, because it seems to me all of the Summery kind of books I have read are really predictable. This book was anything but predictable. Just when I thought I knew what was about to happen, Ally Carter threw in a twist that I didn't see coming.
Another thing I thought was how much I loved some characters, Kat for example, but how I felt some characters needed more something to them, Hale for example. First off I want to say I loved Kat. She is one of the best female characters I have read so far this year. Second, I felt that some characters needed more development to them, and in this whole book I felt that Kat was the only one that had development.
Heist Society is a very exciting, fast paced summer book, with a plot that captivated me from the first page down to the last word, characters that I felt where fantastic, and some I felt needed something more, and a writing style that I fell in love with.
