About the book:
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.

My thoughts:

Double Crossed is the first book I've read by Ally Carter, but I've heard great things about her books and her "Heist Society" series is on my "to-read-someday" list.

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.
