I know I read this book months ago but I must have forgotten to review it here! Crazy.
When we last left Kat in Heist Society she had just wrapped up robbing the Henley to prove her father's innocence. In Uncommon Criminals, Kat has accepted that she is a thief and does not belong in the regular academic world she tried so hard to fit into in the first book, but she's okay with that as long as she is stealing within her personal code. She continues to steal artwork that has already been stolen so that she can return the pieces to the original owners. In this novel, however, she's after a mysterious jewel, the Cleopatra Emerald. It's a tough job and one that requires the help of not only her immediate band of thieves, but even her estranged Uncle Charlie-- Uncle Eddie's twin.
Just like Ally Carter's other novels, Uncommon Criminals is a fun, exciting read. I read it months ago but I still remember it. If you haven't picked up any of Carter's books, get on it. She's one of my favorite current YA authors.
