Uncommon Criminals

Uncommon Criminals by Aly Carter is the second book in the Heist Society series.  This series follows sixteen year old Katerina, a skilled thief and and her gang.  Katerina and her friends take on the the task of stealing the cursed Cleopatra Diamond so they can return it to it's rightful owner.  Things don't go exactly as planned and she must pull of the impossible.

I have mixed feelings about this series.  It's exciting and fresh and different but yet it's missing something.  The characters don't connect with the reader or each other as well as I would like and all the planning got a little tiresome at the end.  It is original and fun and being enveloped in the world of the filthy rich and the world of jewel/art thieves I just would have liked to have connected with the characters a little more.

Appropriateness:  There is no adult content in the novel.  There is a bit of romance but not enough to put off young readers  I would recommend this book to readers 11+
