Uncommon Criminals by Ally Carter
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
WOW! I LOVED this book. I read it in about 2 days! I enjoyed the first story, but this second one really stepped it up a notch and it actually made me rethink the first book. I have changed my rating for the second book from 3 to 4 stars. This book def. gets 5 stars. It kept me wanting , no NEEDING to read through till the end. It has so many twists and turns. Its a very exciting read. Its action, adventure, travel (makes u want to travel the world), little romance (could use a little more of this, LOL. Ally Carter's writing is different, I can't really explain it, but it always seems as if you are right there among the characters and you are at their side diving into the action just as they are. The main character Kat is someone I would love to have as a BFF or a cousin "if u read the book , u will know why I say cousin." Once I started reading book two, I was so happy to be back in the characters lives.
Without giving spoilers, Kat comes from a high-profile crime family. Even though she would like to have a "normal" life, her life is anything but. Oh, and of course, there is a sexy billionaire in the picture! lol Just found out on Ally's site that Drew Barrymore will produce and direct the upcoming film and I am soooooo excited. Ally Carter books always remind me of Disney movies, like Even Stevens, Lizzie McGuire or Parent-trap. I guess thats why I love them, they bring me back to good memories of being curled up with the family on the couch watching a movie.
This book is VERY clean, no bad language, no sexual content, no blood or gore which is proves you do not need all of that to have a great exciting story.
I highly recommend this series along with Ally's Gallagher Girls series. I never thought I would enjoy entering the thief or spy world, but now I find I don't want to leave it! Cant wait for the next one! Thanks Ally!
