Double Crossed: A Spies and Thieves Story (Gallagher Girls) Kindle Edition
"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

A Spies and Thieves story
I liked it but had a hard time getting into the story but that was not the story's problem but either my new kindle fire or the digital copy. Kept having to back out of it and try again.
I liked Ally's characters. Would love to read more of her work. This novella was good. It had both of her series characters that are in one book.
Gallagher Girls is a boarding school for genius girls but they are training to be spies. The story is fun and left me wanting more of them. I would read the series even if I am older than 12 by decades.
High Society thieves books. W.W. Hale V is a very rich in family of old money. He is a teen and likes to rob high end. His friend Kat left the family business and conned her way into a boarding school. She wants a normal life but Hale got her kicked out for pranking the headmaster's car.
I don't recommend robbing but the series looks like it would be fun to read. I wanted more of Kat and Hale and see what they get up too.
I was given this ebook to read and asked to give honest review by Netgalley. It was also free on amazon.

I really liked the story. It was interesting, clean, and even had a little bit of mystery/intrigue. I was a little nervous at first that the story/characters wouldn't be easy to keep straight (since I haven't read the "Heist Society" and "Gallagher Girls" series), but thankfully that wasn't an issue at all!
Overall, a really good novella. It definitely makes me want to read more of Ally's books. If you enjoy clean mainstream YA novels with some spy elements, you might want to try this book. It's free on Kindle right now.

Having not yet started Carter's Gallagher Girls series (despite my love of spycraft in film and fiction), I was a little worried that the novella would lose me by introducing a world and characters with which I was totally unfamiliar. But I needn't have been concerned -- this novella is an absolute delight from start to finish. By narrowing the focus from each series to two characters -- the charismatic and dishy Hale from the Heist books, and Macey McHenry, society darling and spy-in-training. With two characters from such familiar socio-economic backgrounds but very different lifestyles, it was a brilliant stroke to reveal both series take place in the same world, with endless possibilities for future crossover adventures.
Within the short-span of the novella format, Carter packs all of the ingredients that makes her Heist Society novels such fun -- high stakes targets, danger, and a dash of humor and romance in the vein of films like To Catch a Thief -- though as a firm Hale/Kat-shipper, Hale and Macey's banter adds spice and humor to their interaction while only confirming that Hale's heart is very much taken by one brilliant thief named Kat. AS IT SHOULD BE. *wink*
It's such fun seeing Carter juxtapose the very different worlds of her two series -- one ostensibly dedicated to promoting law and order and the other always on the lookout for their next mark. Forced to work together in order to survive, the tension that results positively sparks from the page and leaves me hoping that further crossover adventures -- whether short stories or full-length novels -- will be in the offing, perhaps each focusing on different sets of characters from each series. Double Crossed is a charming addition to the world of both series, sure to please existing fans -- and create new ones -- with its glamour, cracking pace, and oh-so-memorable characters.
