For those who have enjoyed the Gallagher Girls series, here is another series with strong female leads. This time, instead of spies in training, we have con artists in training. Join us at the Antioch Branch on Monday, October 1 at 6:30 p.m., and discover how well they do.
Heist Society by Ally Carter
For as long as she can remember, Katarina has been a part of the family business — thieving. When Kat tries to leave "the life" for a normal life, her old friend Hale conspires to bring her back into the fold. Why? A mobster’s art collection has been stolen, and Kat’s father is the only suspect. Caught between Interpol and a far more deadly enemy, Kat’s dad needs her help. The only solution is to find the paintings and steal them back. Kat’s got two weeks, a teenage crew, and hopefully enough talent to pull off the biggest heist in her family’s history — and with any luck, steal her life back along the way.
Complete with glamorous international settings, intriguing suspense, complicated cons, and an even more complicated romance, this is the next great series for fans of Ally Carter everywhere. It's also a Truman Award nominee.
