I just bought a copy of Heist Society from Borders last night because the hardcover was on sale for $5.99 and I couldn't resist. It was an impulse buy because I didn't know anything about HS other than what I read in the blurb at the store. But as soon as I got home, I looked it up and it received pretty good reviews. Now, I'm very excited and thinking of bumping it up on my TBR pile.


Here's the blurb (from Goodreads):

When Katarina Bishop was three, her parents took her to the Louvre...to case it. For her seventh birthday, Katarina and her Uncle Eddie traveled to Austria...to steal the crown jewels. When Kat turned fifteen, she planned a con of her own--scamming her way into the best boarding school in the country, determined to leave the family business behind. Unfortunately, leaving "the life" for a normal life proves harder than she'd expected.

Soon, Kat's friend and former co-conspirator, Hale, appears out of nowhere to bring her back into the world she tried so hard to escape. But he has good reason: a powerful mobster's art collection has been stolen, and he wants it returned. Only a master thief could have pulled this job, and Kat’s father isn’t just on the suspect list, he is the list. Caught between Interpol and a far more deadly enemy, Kat’s dad needs her help.

For Kat there is only one solution: track down the paintings and steal them back. So what if it’s a spectacularly impossible job? She’s got two weeks, a teenage crew, and hopefully just enough talent to pull off the biggest heist in her family’s (very crooked) history--and, with any luck, steal her life back along the way.

If you have read Heist Society, please let me know what you thought of it. Was a good impulse buy? Should I bump it up the pile? Have a wonderful rest of the week everyone!
