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 priceless art collection has been stolen and he wants it returned. Only a master thief could have pulled off 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.

Quotes & Awards

  • “This irresistible light-fingered fairy tale is elevated by glamour and mystery. Carter’s style is conversational, smooth, and clever, exposing Kat’s wry humor and her steely determination…Daring, delicious, but filled with a sense of purpose, Heist Society mixes classic elements of the adolescent bildungsroman into a high-stakes escapade.”

    " This book wasn't what I expected. It was different but it was overall a Alrite book. I didn't love it but i didn't hate it. At times I was confused and wondering what and who? I don't know if there was supposed to be romance but it seemed like it and times then again it didn't. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Al | 2/4/2014

    " The ending was clever...somewhat Thomas Crowne-like. All in all, it was pretty good. "

    " a very cool book "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Samantha Blake | 1/29/2014

    " This book was really good! It's not a favorite of mine but I really enjoyed reading it. I loved the characters I thought they were entertaining and fun. I loved the whole professional thief thing, I loved Kat's family, they were probably my favorite characters next to Arturo Taccone, he was a lovable character...well at least he was to me. Anyway this book was really good and I enjoyed every minute of it can't wait to get my hands on the second one! "

    " I originally picked up this book because the author wrote the Gallagher Girls series. I found that this book had a very similar plot and characters, but i still really liked it! This book had a little more action than her other novels, though. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Noelle A | 8/27/2013

    " I didn't like the authors writing style at all and I just found the book to be boring and predictable. The characters were also not very engaging. I wouldn't recommend this book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Crystal | 7/21/2013

    " Think The Thomas Crown Affair for teens! Loved it! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Priyana | 7/17/2013

    " I loved this book, it had a lot of action, but not to much that it's repetitive! I'm a sucker for any kind of spy/thief books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Heather Heeter | 6/30/2013

    " Very easy read. Finished the book in two days. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Emily Bailey | 12/21/2012

    " I read Heist Society as a book club book and liked it very much. It was a little confusing to read, but that's part of what made it so good. Even now there are parts I'm still confused about but that's okay because I have the second one to start very soon! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Aline | 6/18/2012

    " Many twists in turns in this mystery/adventure book. Follow Kat and her friends as she tries to save her father from an Italian mob-like man. All in all, it was a good read and I will probably look for more of her books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kklamb Fuller | 4/25/2012

    " Really this is more a 3.5 for the series. I like Carter's strong female protagonists. They are smart, clever leaders. I would want my tween/teen to read these when the time comes. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jacquelyn Vazquez | 8/27/2011

    " I think the characters should have been a couple years older to make the story better for sure. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 April Franklin | 8/25/2011

    " It was ok. It was fast-paced and had an interesting plot, but was kind of poorly written. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mackenzie | 6/30/2011

    " So cute!!! I loved it!!! I think the author could have made the book longer and more intense. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sasha | 6/23/2011

    " This is a fun read about the daughter of a long line of art thieves. It's funny and sweet and reads like a Disney movie, but I recommend it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Yvonne | 6/23/2011

    " I thought it was a little cliched and the characters weren't compellingly likeable "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jennifer | 6/22/2011

    " A teen heist story. A bit unbelievable that a bunch of teens can do a major heist, but I was willing to suspend reality for a little fun read. I think I'll like this series better than Carter's other teen-spy series. We'll see. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mandy | 6/22/2011

    " Read this amazing book a while ago. I forgot to add it :) "
