Product description

Burglary is in Katarina’s blood. When she was three, her parents took her to the Louvre… to case it. For her seventh birthday, she travelled to Austria… to steal the crown jewels. But when Kat turned fifteen, she pulled off a con of her own – scamming her way into the best boarding school in the country, determined to leave the family business behind. But leaving “the life” for a normal one isn’t quite that easy. Her dad’s survival is on the line, and Kat must go back into the world she’s tried so hard to escape… From the creator of Gallagher Girls, this fast-paced crime caper is the ultimate fiction addiction!

“Daring, delicious, but filled with a sense of purpose… a high-stakes escapade.” School Library Journal

“This is a thoroughly enjoyable, cinema-ready adventure.” Booklist

    I borrowed this from the library, thinking I’d love it, as I’m a massive fan of crime fiction. It started off great but I’ve just lost interest.

    Heist Society is an exciting, mysterious and wonderful book. It is really interesting and I recommend it to anyone who has a taste for mystery or action books, or anyone who just likes reading.

    There are parts when you can really feel the emotion of the characters and the story line draws you in. The ending partially leaves you with a cliff hanger and you just want to know what happens afterwards. It is very descriptive, but at times it can be subtle when it needs to be.

    Overall, it is a very good book and enjoyable to read.

    I really enjoyed this book, it was pretty funny, but it was really adventrous. When I first looked at the book, I thought, ” I hate this book!” then as I started to read it, I really enjoyed it.

    My favourite character is Kat because she travels across the world just to find out who stole Mr. T’s five famous paintings and she is courageous. Mr. T thinks that Kat’s dad stole his 5 famous paintings, but he didn’t, so Kat tries to convince Mr.T that it wasn’t her dad by re-stealing them back from whoever stole them in the first place.

    I recommend this book to anyone who likes adventure,fiction or drama books and rate it 9/10.
