HEIST SOCIETY features fifteen-year-old Kat Bishop, a reformed grease man and the daughter--and granddaughter and great-granddaughter--of a thief. She conned her way into one of the best private schools in North America, then hung up her rappelling gear and turned in her non-squeaky shoes. She was out of the game, out of the life, practically out of the family--until a less-than-scrupulous art collector blamed her father for a multimillion-dollar theft, then threatened to dispatch him unless he returned the paintings. The only problem is, Kat’s father didn’t steal them, and with Interpol dogging his every step, he can’t exactly steal them back from whoever did. But Kat can, and if she wants to save her dad, that’s exactly what she has to do.
I loved the world Ms. Carter built and the characters she created. I also loved the twist ending, which, I must admit, I didn’t see coming. It definitely leaves room for a sequel, so Ms. Carter, if you’re reading this, I hope you’re writing one:)
HEIST SOCIETY is a delightful romp through the air ducts and art galleries of Europe. If you like a classic caper, you’re sure to love this modern mystery/adventure.
