Heist Society- Ally Carter -2010
Have you ever wished that you could be a kick-ass superhero or Spy Girl ? Maybe coveted Harriet the Spy - I know I did , it was one of my favourite movies. If I take a look at my DVDs I own Relic Hunter , Indiana Jones Quartet , Supernatural and my favourite Spy Girl TV Series ...... Veronica Mars thats a bit like Gossip Girl meets Nancy Drew.
Today's book review is from Authoress Ally Carter , who is most famously known for her series The Gallagher Girls- which was like a secret spy school for girls. Today's review looks at the opposite side of the fence and is the first book hopefully in what could be a new series for her.
Heist Society - Ally Carter - 2010
