Story Review: Double Crossed by Ally Carter

Double Crossed
Author: Ally Carter
Publication: Disney Hyperion (January 22, 2013)

Description: 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? 
My Thoughts: The Gallagher Girls meet the Heist society in this story of a kidnapping/jewel theft that goes wrong because Macey McHenry, W W Hale V and Kat Bishop—three teens who are anything but ordinary—get involved. Hale and Macy are attending a high society party when gunmen wearing masks of US Presidents sneak in apparently to rob the guests or hold them for ransom. Hale and Macey use their skills as thieves and spies to thwart the robbers from the inside while Kat and Abby work from the outside to outsmart the gunmen and capture the real thief. 

Also contained in this ebook are the first three chapters of Heist Society and the first two chapters of the first Gallagher Girls book, I'd Tell You I love You, But Then I'd Have to Kill You. I have only read Heist Society but now I'm eager to read the rest of that series and read the Gallagher Girls series too. 

Favorite Quote:
He seemed almost serious when he said, "I'm sorry if I'm not flirting with you. I'm kind of spoken for."

"I'm sorry if I'm not disappointed. I kind of don't care."
