Uncommon Criminals

I was very afraid of reading this book, it's a young adult book written by a New York Times bestselling author, usually those combinations mean lots of swear words that I really don't enjoy reading, but this book was a pleasant surprise. Katarina is a normal looking 15 year old girl, she might be a bit on the short side, but she fits in everywhere, at Russian parties and fancy museums. What those that see her don't know is that she is a thief, not just any thief. She steals artifacts that have already been stolen by whoever, Nazi's a lot of times, and returns them to their proper owners. She's just finished a job at the previously mentioned Russian party, she flies home and is met at the airport by her crush W.W. Hale, otherwise known as Hale. He's not happy with her because she keeps taking risks by doing all the jobs all on her own instead of asking for help from the other criminals. They are just about to get into the limo for their ride home when they are approached by an older lady and what appears to be her son about another job, this one stealing the infamous Cleopatra emerald that was discovered by her parents and stolen by another person working on the sight many years earlier. And it's also cursed. Kat decides that she's willing to steal it, but it will not be easy. They study the situation and figure out how to steal it, but almost as soon as the jewel is delivered they determine that the woman was not who she said she was and now Kat, Hale and their friends must figure out who she is and what she wants with the emerald. I really enjoyed this book, it was clean and also had quite a fun plot. I think I'll have to find more of the Heist Society series of books to read.
