Heist Society was an absolutely adorable book. I found myself becoming very connected to the books main character Katarina Bishop. Kat, as most people call her, is not your average teen. Kat along with her family have basically been world class thieves for most of their lives. In an attempt to live as a normal teenager, Kat cons her way into boarding school. Unfortunately, her family and friends pull her right back into the lifestyle she is trying to leave behind. In a fight to save someone in her family, Kat must pull off one of the biggest heists of all time.
Kat Bishop is a very strong female character. The interesting thing is that her strength as lead character seemed to hold her back when she was faced with an emotional moment. Part of her journey as a character was to learn how to respond to emotion and express her emotions as well. I really enjoyed reading this book and found it to be a really fun read. Once the book gets going the plot moves very quickly while still making you wonder what will happen next. Their even is a little bit I romance in the book, which is essential for most young adult novels. Another great thing about this book is that Ally Carter is working on a sequel. I can't wait to read about more exciting adventures in Kat's life.
