You Can't Judge A Book By Its Cover...Or Can You?

Cover Judge is a weekly feature that spotlights the gorgeous covers of books on my wish list. This week I'm extremely excited to share the cover of Ally Carter's new book!

Heist Society by Ally Carter

I heard all about Heist Society and the characters from Ally during the Wordplay event I went to earlier this year. From what she alluded to, it's going to be a fantastic book. Even better, it now has a fantastic cover to match!

Release: February 9, 2010

Synopsis: 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.

Cover: I really like how they used the sunglasses to reflect to paintings and the museum, which are central to the plot. As Ally would say, the paintings are the McGuffins of the novel, so having them represented in the cover was a great idea. The cover really catches the proposed tone of the book in my opinion; the model looks sophisticate but mischievous, with her secretive little smirk. All in all, another beautiful cover for Ally.
