Shine
Lauren Myracle
Salt Sugar Fat: How the Food Giants Hooked Us
Uncommon Criminals  - Ally Carter

Pros: 

  1. These books are fun
  2. Jewelry heist
  3. The con goes wrong

 

Cons:

  1. These books really read like YA
  2. Everything is very surface
  3. Will they? Won't they?

 

I really like the Heist Society novels because Kat was who I wanted to be as a little kid (if I couldn't go to Narnia). This series holds a special place for me, as it reaches out to the part of me that really wanted to be an international jewel and art thief.

 

Coming off the high of their last heist, Kat struggles with accepting her role in the family business while defining her own set of morals and values. When the con goes wrong she finds that her friends and family are always there for her.

 

That being said, they read really young. This definitely feels very Middle Grade to me rather than YA.
