Book Review: Double Crossed
Author: Ally Carter
Publisher: Disney Hyperion
Synopsis (via Goodreads): Macey McHenry—Glamorous society girl or spy-in-training? W.W. Hale V—Heir to an American dynasty or master thief? There are two sides to every coin. Whether these two can work together is a tossup. Born into privilege, Macey and Hale are experts at mingling with the upper class. But even if they’ve never raised an eyebrow at the glitz, neither teenager has ever felt at home with the glamour. When Macey and Hale meet at a society gala, the party takes a dangerous turn. Suddenly they’re at the center of a hostage situation, and it’s up to them to stop the thugs from becoming hostile. Will Macey’s spy skills and Hale’s con-man ways be enough to outsmart a ruthless gang? Or will they have to seek out the ultimate inside girl to help? The worlds of Heist Society and the Gallagher Girls collide in Ally Carter’s fast-paced, high-stakes and tantalizing new story. Get a behind the scenes glimpse as Ally delivers an irresistible thriller that is full of her signature style and savvy twists.
Review: Short stories aren't usually my cup of tea, but after reading Heist Society by Ally Carter, I was immediately drawn to reading Double Crossed. It was a fun, simple read packed to the punch with spy/thief action that Ally writes best. Now, not only am I intrigued to finish reading the Heist Society series, but I also want to start reading the Gallagher Girl series.
Thank you Netgalley for giving me the opportunity to review this book.
