I read a few of the Gallagher Girls books, but could never bring myself to care much about them. They seemed juvenile and formulaic. I was discouraged to hear that Heist Society would also take place at a boarding school, but was glad to find that most of the story did not revolve around that. It's certainly a fresh concept, revolving around the underground world of art heists (Which, let me just say that I'm not a huge fan of the title.) The book set up some great mysteries to be continued in the future, and I'm excited to read the sequel. This is another book where I was worried about stretching the story too thin in order to force a series, but I think (and hope!) Ally Carter manages to avoid that in the end.
