Hey guys, I’m back from a few days of Summer School and boy am I glad it’s the weekend, haha! Anyways, I’m continuing to review the Heist Society series so this is the second book: Uncommon Criminals by Ally Carter.
Starting off, I think I forgot to mention this in my previous previews but every single book in this series is very short and fast-paced. This means that I highly recommend these books to you if you’re a person who’s even busier in the summer than the school year (like me :)).
If you haven’t read my review of Heist Society (book 1) I highly recommend you do so because it’ll help you get an overall feel for the book and you’ll come back understanding what I’m talking about. Just click here. If you’re back from there, read on for a short synopsis and my thoughts for this one!
Brief synopsis (no spoilers, I gotchu): The entire series is about a girl named Kat who grew up training to be a thief. She and her friends make up the Heist Society, who plan and pull off incredible heists. In this book, Kat and her crew are hired to steal the Cleopatra emerald (which everyone believes to be cursed).
Thoughts: I really love this entire series, but especially this book because now I’ve got a feel for the characters’ personalities and can feel the story more. I absolutely love the plot and HIGHLY recommend this read to anybody. There is no foul language (that I know of) nor other “explicit” parts as you might find in other teen books so it really is a great read for younger teens as well. 5/5 stars for sure!
