The assembly of a crew is a monumental event in a young thief's life. There are meetings and phone call. Plans, and occasionally, a celebratory cake. p.132Ally Carter has style. I'll give her that. Her writing style is so distinct to me that the minute I opened this book, I knew it was going to be great. Kat is like a reverse Cammie, having lived her whole life on the wrong side of the law. Her family is a family of the greatest thieves in the world and Kat was following along until she decided she wanted to be normal. The book picks up at the start of the action (thank God) when Kat is being expelled from the boarding school she conned her way into. From there, it's like Ocean's 11 with teenagers and it is awesome. I know that it was optioned for a movie, but it would make a great TV show too. I like crime shows where the criminal is sympathetic and I had to feel sorry for Kat. Stuck with doing an impossible job to save her father from a very bad man, she really does an awesome job. There was a bigger mystery set up too that wasn't really resolved and I can't wait to see what Carter has in store next for Kat and her crew.
