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.
