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.
When Macey meets Hale at a social gala, she immediately notices him because he is different. After seeing Hale "steal" the phone of one of the guests, Macey becomes interested. When the night takes a dangerous turn, Macey, Hale, Kat and Abby must work together to save the room full of upper class hostages.
I started reading the Gallagher Girls series about two years ago, and I fell in love with both the characters and the story! I loved all four girls equally, but I must say that Macey was the most interesting character for me, so I was really glad to read this story from her point of view. It made me really happy to see Macey and Abby again, and meet two new characters too!
I have not yet read the Heist Society series, but Hale and Kat seemed like amazing characters, so I will surely be reading that series soon! It was amazing seeing the thieves and the spies working together, and I really enjoyed this one! I can't wait for more Kat and Hale! I really regret not reading this sooner!
I recommend people to try this if you want to read either of the series and are having doubts. Through this novella, you can catch a glimpse of both worlds. Plus, it's free! So what are you guys still waiting for? Read this now!
