Uncommon Criminals by Ally Carter

Kat has been busy since the Henley job. She's been single-handedly stealing back the pieces of art that were taken from Jews during WWII. She's left behind her crew, her family, and the boy. It's all so much easier when she has to rely solely on herself. That is until she gets back from a job in Moscow, and is conned by another thief. Suddenly she must not only try and steal a cursed emerald twice but also deal with all the emotions that she thought she had outrun.

Have I mentioned that I have an abiding love for witty heist television? Really like Hustle and LOVE the show Leverage. I just can't help myself, they're so exciting and funny! Which is why I've loved this series so far. This is the second book in a series call Heist Society. The first was called Heist Society, and it was generally about Kat getting back on the thieving horse after being out for a while, and doing an impossible job while staying ahead of Interpol and a shady business man. Awesome. This is about her dealing with the issues of getting back in the game and with the people that know her best. Because even as Kat builds a reputation of being able to pull off the impossible and forbidden, she's really a very emotionally stunted girl. So it's good she has family to rely on to steer her in the right direction and save her when she can't save herself.

This is kind of a short review, mostly because there really isn't anything to say about this book other than it's fantastic and you should go read it now. BECAUSE IT'S AWESOME! It's summer, this book is entertaining and won't make you think too hard. So go. Do it. Read this book.
