Heist Society by Ally Carter
By teen libJanuary 10, 2011
On her first family vacation Kat can remember, her mom and dad took her to the Louvre to case it. As a gift for her seventh birthday, her uncle Eddie took Kat to Austria to steal the crown jewels. Now Kat is fifteen, and she is planning her own successful cons. Kat has managed to scam her way into the most prestigious boarding school in the country. Her plan was to leave the family business. Unfortunately, a misunderstanding involving the headmaster’s mint-condition 1958 Porsche Speedster and the fountain in the quad leaves her with her bags packed at the front gate.
The worst part is that she isn’t even the one responsible for the stunt with the Porsche, in spite of the overwhelming evidence to the contrary. But that’s where her best friend, Hale, comes into the picture. Hale has gotten her expelled all because he needs to deliver a message to her. It seems that a collection of priceless art has been stolen from a powerful mobster, and the only one who could have possibly done the job was her father. There’s just one small problem with that suspect list. Kat’s father has an airtight alibi. The night in question, he was busy with a totally different heist. Unfortunately, the powerful mobster won’t take no for an answer. He wants his paintings back in two weeks, or else. With her father under surveillance by Interpol, Kat can only come up with one solution. She must find the paintings herself and steal them back.
