Overview

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.

With its glamorous international settings, intriguing suspense, complicated cons and even more complicated romance, Heist Society is stealing the hearts of Ally Carter fans everywhere.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - JoAn Watson Martin
Katarina and her thieving family and friends plan a heist of art treasures from museums. But Kat becomes uncomfortable with the life she is leading and makes a drastic change by enrolling herself into Colgan School. Life is definitely different in a school with other teens. She longs to be a normal teen who wears squeaky shoes. Kat is expelled after several illegal incidences occur, which she learns later were instigated by Hale, who set her up for expulsion. On purpose he got her kicked out to assist him in a heist. Her cousin, Gabrielle, helped him by impersonating Kat. Arturo Laccone tells Kat that he is sure her father stole five paintings and he expected her to use her expertise to return them. Her deadline is two weeks away. Kat realizes that Interpol is following her father, who seems to disappear from her life. At the beginning of each chapter, tension builds as the author indicates how many days until the deadline. Uncle Eddie is the nearest family member Kat can find at home. She and Hale ask for his help in clearing her father. His suggestion is she refuse to follow the quest Taccone has set for her. Angus and Hamish come blowing into Uncle Eddie's with their loot from picking pockets. Shades of Dicken's Oliver Twist! From New York to Las Vegas, from Italy, Austria, Poland, London, France Katarina is eternally traveling. The Henley Gallery with its state of the art security presents a challenge. Taccone finds it rare to find someone who is both so young and so wise, both so fresh and so jaded. The author offers many sad true facts in this fictional story. During the Second World War, the Nazis plundered family treasures across all of Europe. Historians, activists, and survivors work tireless to this day to right those terrible wrongs. Reviewer: JoAn Watson Martin
VOYA - Ed Goldberg
Kat Bishop wants to give up her life of crime, which began at age five when she assisted her father in a heist. She gets herself admitted to the exclusive Colgan School seeking anonymity only to get framed for hoisting the headmaster's 1958 vintage Porche on top of the fountain in the quad. Few people could pull off such a stunt, but fifteen-year-old Hale—also a thief—is one. When Kat is expelled from Colgan, Hale meets her in a long, black limousine with a proposition for her. She must steal back some paintings that her father allegedly lifted from gangster Arturo Taccone if she wants her father to remain among the living. Kat flies from New York to Paris to confront her father who has a steadfast alibi—he was in the midst of another heist at the time. Taccone refuses to believe this defense, however, so Kat recruits five teenagers amongst family and friends to pull the bravest heist ever. If one can suspend belief, this novel is enjoyable. The characters are funny, and the action is nonstop. The fifteen-year-old protagonists will appeal to teens—the light-fingered team hops planes like adults drive cars. Kat's teen angst about her looks when comparing herself to her peer jet-setting cousin Gabrielle and her feelings for Hale come through loud and clear. Although the protagonists are male and female, this novel will primarily draw in girls, as do Carter's other books. It will have a ready readership. Reviewer: Ed Goldberg
VOYA - Nicole Drago
As enthralling as her last book, Heist Society will keep you turning the page until the end. The book is witty and comical, and you are rooting for Kat throughout the adventure. It shows the problems of growing up, family, and true friendship. It also gives insight on what happened to priceless paintings during World War II. I would recommend this book to girls who are interested in mysteries and realistic fiction. Reviewer: Nicole Drago, Teen Reviewer
Melanie Hundley
Katarina Bishop, born into a family of art thieves, wants to have a normal life, so she forges the documents necessary to get into a prestigious New England boarding school. She can't escape her past, however, and soon finds herself leading a team of young thieves. In this one caper, she will attempt to prove her father's innocence, return the property of a dangerous billionaire, and pull off the world's most impossible art theft. Katarina has been a part of some pretty intense family scams; however, pulling off this one will take all of her considerable talents. Betrayals, art history, and European cities provide a lush backdrop for this tale of family and thievery. Katarina worries about her father, deals with family members and family history, and juggles relationships with boys—all while planning complex heists. From the author of the Gallagher Girls series, this exciting story is a winner. Reviewer: Melanie Hundley
School Library Journal
Gr 7–10—Fifteen-year-old Katerina (Kat) Bishop is not your average world-class traveler. She's been to the Louvre (to case it at age 3) and to Austria (to steal crown jewels at age 7), and she owns a Fabergé egg. The Bishop family business, which specializes in the "distribution" of fine arts, allowed Kat to grow up all over Europe, learning from an early age that a picture is worth, quite literally, more than a thousand words. However, she also learned that all that glitters is not diamonds in the life of a thief and decided to pursue a more normal life in a prestigious boarding school. When five priceless paintings are stolen from a mobster living in Italy, Kat discovers that her father is the number one suspect. She returns to the life she tried so hard to leave. She has two weeks to pull off the heist of the century, while learning that "time is the greatest thief of all." Kat assembles a teenage crew, including several cousins and handsome Hale, her former co-conspirator. When they include one more player, an outsider named Nick, they discover that they are part of a "con within a con." With a global cast of characters in Ally Carter's edge-of-your seat novel (Hyperion, 2010), narrator Angela Dawe moves seamlessly between a steely mobster, a British bloke, Scotland Yard detectives, assorted foreign languages, and Kat. This is solo narration at its absolute best. Sprinkled with humor and romance and a mixture of intrigue, espionage, and suspense, this is a must-have audiobook.—Cheryl Preisendorfer, Twinsburg City Schools, OH
Publishers Weekly
The daughter of notorious thieves, Kat Bishop has enrolled in the exclusive Colgan School to escape the family business and try to live a normal life. But when she is kicked out, Kat has to return to her roots. She is informed that five priceless paintings have been taken from the powerful mobster Arturo Taccone, and that her father is Taccone's only suspect. It is up to Kat to return the paintings before Taccone takes matters into his own hands. Kat embarks on a daring, dangerous heist, immersing herself in the world of art, money, and extreme power. With the help of her friend (and crush), Hale, and a band of teenage coconspirators, Kat crisscrosses the globe to locate Taccone's paintings. Carter takes on large themes—family, friendship, loyalty, and good versus evil—and effectively gives readers light lessons in geography and art, as well as thought-provoking commentary on artwork stolen during the Holocaust. With a smart and stealthy heroine who should appeal to Gallagher Girls fans, Carter's story is fast-paced and popcorn-ready. Readers will likely look forward to Kat's next adventure. Ages 11–up.

    What a Heist!

    I have always loved Ally Carter's other books so when I saw Heist Society, I thought I would take a shot. Wow!! There is more intrigue than the Gallagher Girls series she has written before, and way more cool toys than a James Bond thriller. Kat Bishop is a girl you would want as your best friend. Not only could she keep you out of trouble, she could add to your art collection. There are cute guys, great characters, and a story that really has its roots in history, and is very touching.
    If you like Gallagher Girls, this is a must read!!

    Kat used to lead a life of danger before she pulled her biggest con ever and walked away from a life of thievery to attend boarding school. Her enrollment lasts a few months before her old life comes crashing in on her and her plans.

    She's framed for a prank she didn't commit, but that will nonetheless result in her expulsion from school. Quickly she realizes this dismissal is the work of an old family friend. He's here to tell her that her master thief father needs her help.

    Turns out her father's been set up, too. Only the consequences are nowhere near as soft as being kicked out of boarding school.

    Kat secretly meets her father's deadly enemy and works out a deal. She has two weeks to find the paintings and steal them back. If successful, it will be the biggest job she'll ever pull off - and also the most dangerous. Can she do it?

    I adore THE GALLAGHER GIRLS series, but this new series may be even better. HEIST SOCIETY is my new favorite book. The combination of finding the art, the major heist, saving a relative, and going against the family makes for a thrilling, edge-of-your-seat read.

    Amazing from Front to Back!

    As a young woman nearing the end of her teenage years, I have read only too many young adult books of many genres. This, Heist Society, has been one of my favorites! I ordered Heist Society many months ago and finally got to it in my stack of books recently. I read it ALL in one night, I just couldn't put it down! The characters are interesting, the back stories are riveting, and all you want is to know what happens next in Katarina's journey from leaving the family business to getting back into it! The mix of girlie glamor with tomboy thieving is just pure perfection! I would easily recommend this book to any teen girl!

    If You Like "Leverage" You Will LOVE This Book!

    This novel is amazing. It makes the reader instantly gripped by the characters and their thoughts, feelings, and histories. The storyline is not petty and unappealing, it has emotion and antiquity wrapped up inside it, centering on Kat's relationship with her parents.
    The ending is well-worth the journey, giving answers and leaving questions that end the book the way it started: with a heist.

    Loved It

    This book is a refreshing read from the vampires, werewolves, and wizards. The whole actual teenager without any magical powers makes the whole book exciting. Plus, all the characters have a realistic feel to them (aside the fact that most of them thieve.) I highly recomend for anyone (boys included, this book isn't all romance.)

    Read this!! NOW

    Lol. Anyway, this may just be my favorite series of all time, and I've read at least a hundred series. Ally Carter has outdone herself. While I loved the Gallagher Girls series, that was nothing compared to this. Maybe it's just because I think spies are cliche.

    Whatever the case, Heist Society is a masterful creation of wit, humor, suspense, mystery, and romance. I particularly love Kat's crazy thief family. If there was any series I'd want to own, it would be this one.

    Keep writing Ally!

    @Rachel's Book Reviews The book synopsis is perfect, so I did

    @Rachel's Book Reviews



    The book synopsis is perfect, so I didn't write my own. I loved the characters and the plot (no spoilers!) It took a classic motive and made it new again. I also love the characters, they are realistic in the sense that…..well..…let me explain it better. How many books have you read where the main female role is crazy about some guy, and he’'s too dense to see it? Let me guess: more than you can count.
    This one breaks that ridiculous mold. Most female authors take to heart that men are not as emotional as women. But, they take it too much to heart. Most (most being the key word) guys are not felling-less neanderthals. Men may not show emotion as much, but their prides can be bruised just as much as girls. For once we have a male character (Hale) who actually feels emotion, without going overboard, or underboard, as the case may be. For once, Kat, the female lead is quite clueless (or at least as much as the boys usually are) about his more than friendship feelings. It shows the truth of things. Half the time, girls are just as clueless as boys. Example: It involves an amusing story about me at summer camp. If you want to read it, go to the next page. Point and case, I loved both Heist Society and Uncommon Criminals.
    My friend Mitchell had a little blip on Heist Society, I thought it might be fun to have a boys opinion on it: 
    “Well, Heist Society was okay, I thought it lacked some critical action that could have made it much better.”

    Beginning Part: Ally Carter¿s Heist Society begins with a girl,

    Beginning Part:
    Ally Carter’s Heist Society begins with a girl, Katrina Bishop, who gets expelled from her prep school, Colgan, because her head master claims she had done something she really did not do. When she was leaving the school she ran into to a man named W.W. Hale the fifth and this is where the story starts. Katrina is trying to help her father avoid trouble with a very mean, bad guy. As the reader, I enjoyed this part of the book because it gets the back story explained and the past of the two main characters and how they are friends. The beginning was also very well written; I liked how the characters are talked about along with how their history is given before the character is introduced into the story. An example of this is that they tell the reader about Katrina’s Uncle Eddie, by saying that he is the best thief around and his life history is told before we meet him in this story. In the beginning the background of some of the major characters and the problems that the team is facing are introduced to the reader.
    Middle Part:
    The middle part of this amazing book, Heist Society, introduces more of Katrina’s family; their names are Gabrielle, Hamish, Angus, and Simon. These people are all focused on in this part of the book because they will always help Katrina in whatever way she needs them. The characters are very well written by Ally Carter with great detail and emotions. This book also talks about the different art museums around the world because Katrina’s family members are thieves that steal art work from all the major and minor art galleries. At the end of this section they introduce another thief named Nick, he has a major role in the climax of the story; he is a very believable character. This part also tells you about how much Katrina and her group travel around the world and how much trouble they will get into to save Katrina’s father.
    End Part:
    In the end of Heist Society all the story lines in the book are ended in a fantastic way. The end also holds some surprises that the reader would probably never have guessed and the main purpose of this book was given in a very good manner. This shows how the different characters are the same in more ways than just being thieves and it shows the emotion behind the whole book. This is a very well told part of the book, it demonstrate an amazing end of an amazing story.
    Best Part:
    The best part of this book was how well the story is crafted. The flashbacks, that are Katrina’s past, are very well told and are completely about the topic on hand. The characters backgrounds are given when the character is first introduced or before you learn more about them as the story progresses. Another good thing about this book is that it is very entertaining to the reader and keeps the reader engages in the whole story. A great part of the book is the emotional side of the entire book, this is shown when Katrina tries to do everything possible and that she is cable of to keep her family and friends save from harm’s way. This book had very much good literacy and literature, this is one of the best books to read, and it is very enjoyable.
    Worst Part:
    The worst part of this book is how the middle part is a little bit boring. What also was bad about this book was that it was based off of such a story amount of time, it could have been better if the story was a bit long to give even more detail about the characters. The last thing that was bad about this book was that the book kept repeating what the group though about the people that they were with. Over all, this book had really very few bad qualities about it.

    A 2.5 stars read for me. Disappointing. The idea behind Heist S

    A 2.5 stars read for me. Disappointing.

    The idea behind Heist Society is something I adore and love; a sixteen years old (female) thief forced to create a crew and retrieve paintings from a secured facility in order to help her loved ones.
    But for me, the execution of this intriguing idea just wan't good enough:
    First, the characters weren't very well developed, and we knew nearly nothing about their past – even the main characters. The past builds us and shapes us; if it's completely ignored in a book I feel like I can't understand the characters well. The result of that, to me, was that they all felt FLAT.
    All we know about the characters is what’s happening to them right now, what they’re doing and how. We learn some of their traits through it, but it lacks a lot. Depth of character, knowledge on our characters. I didn’t feel like I knew them, and so I didn’t invest in them.
    The main reason I kept reading was in hopes we'll find out more things, such as why Kat decided to leave The Life, how did her meeting with Hale went down, how was she taught all these things, etc.
    Second, I disliked how most of the characters just appeared, leaving me to wonder who they are (and what do they have to do with Kat). When we got any bit of information on them it was little and far down the road.
    Third, the Romance in the book was very disappointing. Or should I say, there isn't much of it. We have attraction, and we have some sweet moments between Kat and Hale, but nothing aside that. I was expecting there to be SOMETHING.
    And when it comes to the writing... lets just say I'm not Carter's biggest fan.
    It's not that her writing isn't good, there was actually some parts of it I really liked such as the way she jumped to the past or future to tell us about how something was and how something will be, and I also liked how the POV switched between characters while in operation, so we could see all their roles.
    But I didn't like how she jumped locations - It's too fast, too abrupt, and without explanation. And then there was the counting clock, telling you how many days were left to the deadline. I felt like I was dropped in the middle of an episode of 24 or something.
    But in the end, the main reason I dislike the writing is that in my case - it didn't generate the wanted response from me; I wasn't excited, I wasn't scared, I was on auto-pilot, and though it was a quick read, I didn't feel like I enjoyed it much.
    And yet, I WILL read the next book, because I just love the idea and some part of me hopes it will get much better with the next books.

    Horrible

    This book is absolutely horrible! I cant finish it and this has never happened with me and a book before. The story line is extremely boring and no imagination was put into it. The characters are so sketchy and boring. The romance with Kat and Hale was pathetic. The main character, Katrina, at some points made me want to scream and fling the book across the room. And i would do that but I read this on my Nook. I can honestly say Ive never read a worse book in my life. I wasted my money on this crap

    Ok

    This book is pretty good except i felt it dragged and some parts are confusing. It is not my favorite book!
