Publisher's Summary

Since she can remember, Katarina's relatives have been grooming her for the family business - thieving. But when Kat tries to go straight and leave the "Life" for a normal life, she's promptly kicked out of her new school for stealing the headmaster's car and mounting it on the school fountain. Although she could have done it without breaking a sweat, ironically, this time, she's innocent.

In fact, she was framed - by another highly skilled thief. Her friend and brother-in-trade Hale, with his mischievous smile and limitless bank account, has appeared out of nowhere to bring her back to the Life, back to the family Kat tried so hard to escape.

Hale has a good reason: A powerful mobster has just been robbed of his priceless art collection, and he wants to retrieve it. Only a master thief could have cracked this vault, and Kat's father isn't just on the suspect list, he IS the list.

Now, caught between Interpol and a far more deadly predator, Kat's dad needs her help. For Kat, a consummate thief in her own right, the solution is simple: track down the paintings and steal them back. So what if it's a spectacularly impossible job? She's got two weeks, a teenage crew, and maybe just enough misguided pride to pull off the biggest heist in history - or at least in her family's (very crooked) history.

    "A Pleasant Surprise"

    This was deeper than I expected it to be. It's definitely YA but it still has a good message about war crimes. I'm looking forward to reading another one.

    "Fun listen!!!"

    Needing a break from "serious" books, I chose The Heist.

    What a fun listen!!! Angela Dawe seamlessly changes her voice for each character regardless of gender and age. Each character is recognizable, even Halle and Nick.

    The story is fun, interesting and believable. The length is perfect.

    Saving to my re-listen list for my next needed break!

    Story
    "Masterful narrator; regrettable story"

    This is an unlikely story with cliche characters, cheesy fictional elements, an unrealistic plot, and a predictable ending. But what more can we expect from YA literature? I only finished the story so I could spend more time with the narrator, whose grasp of voices and accents was masterful.

    "i'm not book friendly"

    but as a 22 year old male, this book is incredibly fascinating and was easy to follow in segmental binge-listens.

    Story
    "Fun book for students"
    Where does Heist Society rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    The audio was great. The characters were fun to follow throughout the story. I got this book for my jr. high daughter. She really liked the action of the book. A great introduction to heist storylines for her.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Hale because throwing in a billionaire kid always makes for exciting growth.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The opening scene imagining the Porche on top of a water fountain!


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Heist Society, never underestimate a school girl


    Any additional comments?

    Lots of great classroom lesson plans with this book. It should be on more teachers reading lists

    Story
    "I enjoyed listening to Heist Society."

    Heist Society is different from most stories. Most kids don't grow up in a family of thieves and try to have a real life. While some of it was a bit unbelievable, it is a good story.

    Story
    "Good enough to play for a long drive"

    I enjoyed listening to the story but did not find myself becoming attached to any of the characters. To me it seemed to be a formula book that could be fleshed out after one prepared an outline.

    Good enough and I'm sure you will find many fans of the author.

    Would you listen to Heist Society again? Why?

    Yes. The story has action and investigation. Is funny and adorable. Isn't a policial story, but is great. I love.

    The scene on the Museum. When Kat and her group are catch. The way they scape was genial.


    What does Angela Dawe bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I don't know how compare. I'm low vision, so I hardly read books.

    NO. I love the story and this is all. No more coments.
