Katarina Bishop wants a normal life. That's because she's grown up assisting her father in some of the world's most famous art thefts. She thinks she's left that life behind after conning her way into an exclusive boarding school. But now, her father's in trouble and Kat must use her unique skills to help him.
Think Gallagher Girls meets Oceans 11, with all the adventure, exotic locations and snark that makes both series so fun.
Carter rounds out Katarina's team with a cast of young thieves, each with their own special skills. She does a great job of giving the criminal elements inherent in story about stealing masterpieces the right amount of altruistic spin necessary, weaving it nicely with a message of family loyalty.
But beyond that, this story is 100% fun and falls into the category of "un-put-downable". Looking forward to Heist Society 2, now in the works. Definitely a new favorite series. 4 1/2 bookmarks.
