Heist Society by Ally Carter

Originally published in: 2010

What it’s about: Kat attempts to leave the family business of stealing art but she gets roped back in through an effort to save her father.

What made me pick it up: This was the first pick for a new book club we’re both in. We were looking for a quick, light, and engaging young adult read.

My favorite things: This was a really fun read. There are a few different threads to follow and relationships that become more complicated with each page. I love that the thieves all work off a shared knowledge of cons named for fairytales and bedtime stories. It’s a fast-paced and exciting read that never has a chance to get the slightest bit boring.

Who it’s great for: Good for teens and adults looking for something upbeat and engaging. Fans of Robin Benway’s Also Known As and Ally Carter’s other work. Readers interested in spying, thieving, or just carrying out some good old-fashioned cons.

Abby’s rating: three-and-a-half-shells
