Heist Society

by Ally Carter

Brilliance Audio | May 17, 2011 | Audio Book (CD)

Heist Society is rated 4 out of 5 by 4.
When Katarina Bishop was three, her parents took her 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 her back into the world she tried so hard to escape. But he has good reason: a powerful mobster's priceless art collection has been stolen and he wants it returned. Only a master thief could have pulled off 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 (very crooked) history ? and with any luck, steal her life back along the way.

Rated out of 5 by from This was a novel I could not put down, I literally read it in two days. It was superb, it had adventure, and a dash of romance. When I first saw this novel I was wondering if I should buy it but then I saw it was on sale and I decided it was worth it. It was amazing, I just loved the way Ally Carter brought a twist to a natural family dynamic and brought in this fifteen year old girl named Katarina Bishop, who was raised to be a thief but decided she wants a normal life.....well you can never be normal, not in her family. I felt sorrow, anguish, and happiness all at the same time. I just wished their was a little bit more, more drama, more romance, more of everything (more pages). But in the end this novel was amazing.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Ocean's Eleven for Youth Our main character Kat is our classic non-feminine girl with a male best friend that just happens to be gorgeous (and rich), the cover is slightly misleading in this aspect with a picture of a girl who is suppose to be Kat looking positively stunning. It follows the same pattern as multiple stories about big thieving operations with the same sort of characters, this is the first one I've come across that deals with teenagers and has a girl running the operation, which makes it unique. I'd recommend this novel for a rainy day or plane ride, not something that will have you canceling dates to finish faster. That being said, I will read the sequel, because I like Kat.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Tick-tick-tick Time is tick-tick-ticking away for Kat and her team. I mean who cares if they're just a group of random teens? So what if they're up againt a million, bazillion security features? So what if they have to retrieve more than one painting in a short amount of time? So what if it seems like a completely impossible mission? They can steal it right? This book is all about busting mission impossible. And unless they accomplish their mission, they're doomed. It's interesting how the team pulls together, despite their differnces, to pull off the biggest heist of the year! If you've read Ally's other series about spies, you'd know that this is a big change from what she's used to writing about. Nonetheless, it's a great book that will keep you on the edge 'til the very end! SPOILER (in a way): I hate snakes.
