Double Crossed by Ally Carter


A Spies and Thieves story

I liked it but had a hard time getting into the story but that was not the story's problem but either my new kindle fire or the digital copy. Kept having to back out of it and try again.

I liked Ally's characters. Would love to read more of her work. This novella was good. It had both of her series characters that are in one book.

Gallagher Girls is a boarding school for genius girls but they are training to be spies. The story is fun and left me wanting more of them. I would read the series even if I am older than 12 by decades.

High Society thieves books. W.W. Hale V is a very rich in family of old money. He is a teen and likes to rob high end. His friend Kat left the family business and conned her way into a boarding school. She wants a normal life but Hale got her kicked out for pranking the headmaster's car.
I don't recommend robbing but the series looks like it would be fun to read. I wanted more of Kat and Hale and see what they get up too.

I was given this ebook to read and asked to give honest review by Netgalley. It was also free on amazon.

Ages 12 and up.

The worlds of Heist Society and the Gallagher Girls collide in Ally Carter’s fast-paced, high-stakes and tantalizing new novella. Get a behind the scenes glimpse as Ally delivers an irresistible thriller that is full of her signature style and savvy twists.

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?
