“It is an occupational hazard that anyone who has spent her life learning how to lie eventually becomes bad at telling the truth.”
Kat Bishop was a is a theif and has tried to leave the criminal life and join the straight and narrow, kind of. You know, as straight and narrow as you can be conning your way into one of the best schools in the country. However, when Kat’s father’s life is put on the line, Kat has no choice but to re-enter the family business.
Heist Society is a fun, light read. If that’s what you’re looking for, I would definitely give this book a shot. If you’re a fan of stuff life Ocean’s Eleven or Hustle or Leverage, or any sort of con/thief television show or movie, I would also highly suggest you give Heist Society a shot, because it’s tailored for teens as well.
Heist Society was also full of some pretty cool (if not rather clichéd) characters. Kat was witty and sassy. Hale was very much attractive and so obviously cared for Kat. Simon was a stereotypical science/computer nerd. Gabriella was also an interesting character and I hope to read more about her and Kat’s frenemy status in the next books.
Overall, a fun and light read with excellent pacing and mystery.
