Heist Society


Here's the descriptions as found on amazon.com:
"Tired of her lifelong involvement in her family's illicit dealings, teenager Katarina Bishop enrolls herself in a prestigious boarding school. Then after a mere three months there, 16-year-old billionaire Hale arranges for her to get kicked out. He informs her that five paintings have been stolen from the menacing Arturo Taccone and that her father is the prime suspect. Determined to save him by locating the real thief and stealing the paintings back, Kat gathers a crack team of larcenous teens for the heist to be pulled off before the two-week deadline. However, her resolve falters when she learns that the paintings are Nazi war spoils. She negotiates complicated relationships in an action-packed plot, and the unknown identity of the thief suggests a sequel. This irresistible light-fingered fairy tale is elevated by glamour and mystery. Carter's style is conversational, smooth, and clever, exposing Kat's wry humor and her steely determination. Amid themes of family loyalty and identity, the protagonist comes to understand herself, her beliefs, and her place in her family. Daring, delicious, but filled with a sense of purpose, Heist Society mixes classic elements of the adolescent bildungsroman into a high-stakes escapade."

MY REVIEW: I enjoyed it and found myself not wanting to put it down. I heard somebody compare it to Ocean's Eleven but I wouldn't go that far. You want to know what happens but it's not high suspense. I quick read but I liked it!

  1. I bought this when Amazon was having their amazing deal for $5 but I haven't read it yet. I think it's next up on my shelf though so probably get to it next week. Glad to hear you liked it too.

  2. A 1Xbet characteristic is usually a twist on a slot rule, which makes it appear to be the sport is more more likely to|prone to} pay in your favor (it's not, it is all hocus pocus). It probably be} turning symbols wild , respinning or nudging the reels or paying side bonuses or growing the variety of free spins or picks, and so on. Whatever it does, it would not change the general return percentage , simply the notion of your odds of winning.
