I just came across this one tonight. It sounds so good! A heist-like plot, smart and scheming characters. Such fun!

It's his senior year and Will Shea has conned his way into one of the country's most elite prep schools. But he soon runs into Andrea, a fellow con-artist. With the school not big enough for the both of them, they make a bet that whoever can con Brandt Rush, the richest, most privileged student in the school out of $50K, gets to stay at the school. Will starts setting up his con (an online poker scam) with his uncle who's one of the best grifters in the business, but also with the unwanted help of his father.. The plot thickens as Will starts falling for fellow student Gatsby, and some of Will's lies start to catch up with him. In this twisty tale of scams, secrets, lies and deception, it hard to figure out who's conning who!


  1. Omg this one sounds amazing! I've been looking for a book like Heist Society for a while, I'll definitely add this one to my TBR :D

  3. I'm really looking forward to this book too! I love books about cons, and this sort of reminds me of two of my favourite series - Heist Society by Ally Carter and White Cat by Holly Black (but without the magic). I love the cover as well. Great pick!

  4. I actually like the sound of this one. I like stories like this about Con Artist who find themselves in a different world.
