When Katarina Bishop was three, her parents took her on a trip to the Louvre…to case it. For her seventh birthday, Katarina and her Uncle Eddie traveled to Austria…to steal the crown jewels. When Kat turned fifteen, she planned a con of her own—scamming her way into the best boarding school in the country, determined to leave the family business behind. Unfortunately, leaving “the life” for a normal life proves harder than she’d expected.
Soon, Kat's friend and former co-conspirator, Hale, appears out of nowhere to bring Kat back into the world she tried so hard to escape. But he has a good reason: a powerful mobster has been robbed of his priceless art collection and wants to retrieve it. Only a master thief could have pulled this job, and Kat's father isn't just on the suspect list, he is the list. Caught between Interpol and a far more deadly enemy, Kat’s dad needs her help.
For Kat, there is only one solution: 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 hopefully just enough talent to pull off the biggest heist in her family's history--and, with any luck, steal her life back along the way.

Next Book In Series? Uncommon Criminals
"Sometimes it takes an outsider, someone with fresh eyes to see the truth.”
Actual Rating: 2.5 stars (rounded up to 3)
I was confused most of the time during this book. I didn't like the characters. I think if I knew what was going on and the characters were somewhat likable this book could of been really good!
Will I Continue This Series:
If I find myself at one point in time with nothing else to read, then yes. So in other words, no I will not be continuing this series because there are tons of books that I am more interested in and want to read!
