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.

Review:
I like novellas- though honestly I do think that they are being over done lately and often done completely wrong. Most novellas these days are like a little add on to the actual novel- so crumbs for fans
This one is not one of them! I am very glad to say

I actually haven't read either of the series- but decided to give this a try anyway. Both Heist Society and Gallagher Girls have been recommended to me before so I thought this would be an way to see if I might be interested

I got to admit - I started this with loads of skepticism. But I was very positively surprised
I especially liked Kats point of view... And am definitely going to read Heist Society at some point. I wanna know what happens to Kat and Hal
The second part of the novella was good as well- but it didn't capture me as much as the first part. Though in many ways its was very simulate written to the first it was also quite different- and somehow more juvenile. I kept on thinking I should read Heist Society instead.
Not sure I will read Gallagher Girls

Still in only 90pages I was introduced to two series without feeling lost and intrigued enough to pick up at least one of the books
Fun cute quick & easy read!
