2nd Annual Kick Butt Characters Hop
& I Am A Reader, Not A Writer
March 23rd - 28th

Young adult books feature some of the best kick-butt characters around! For this hop, I wanted to focus on a different kind of kick-butt character. A whip smart gal who uses her kick butt skills for the heist! That's right, from the author who brought us The Gallagher Girl spies comes....The Heist's Society's Kat Bishop.

Blurb: When Katarina Bishop was three, her parents took her on a trip to the Louvre…to case it. For her seventh birthday, Katarina and her Uncle Eddie traveled to Austria…to steal the crown jewels. When Kat turned fifteen, she planned a con of her own—scamming her way into the best boarding school in the country, determined to leave the family business behind. Unfortunately, leaving “the life” for a normal life proves harder than she’d expected.

Soon, Kat's friend and former co-conspirator, Hale, appears out of nowhere to bring Kat back into the world she tried so hard to escape. But he has a good reason: a powerful mobster has been robbed of his priceless art collection and wants to retrieve it. Only a master thief could have pulled this job, and Kat's father isn't just on the suspect list, he is the list. Caught between Interpol and a far more deadly enemy, Kat’s dad needs her help.

For Kat, there is only one solution: track down the paintings and steal them back. So what if it's a spectacularly impossible job? She's got two weeks, a teenage crew, and hopefully just enough talent to pull off the biggest heist in her family's history--and, with any luck, steal her life back along the way.

Although Kat, her uncle and her crew aren't in the most honest of professions, the acts are noble in an effort to right the wrongs of the true criminals.

The Heist Society is one of my fave books featuring one kickin' kick butt character. I'm offering 1 hardcover copy of the first in the series to a visitor who leaves a comment below. This giveaway is open internationally.

Since 2012 my favorite kick butt characters are the Betarrini sisters from River of Time Series. They can wield swords, hold a fight and they know how to use a bow and arrow! :)
