The Con Code by Shana Silver sounds like an intriguing YA heist story. I haven’t read the author’s previous book, but it sounds as if this one might be fast-paced and full of excitement. The comparisons to Ally Carter’s Heist Society have me really excited. I can’t wait to find out how this story ends.
The Con Code by Shana Silver
Author: Shana Silver

Publication Date: August 25, 2020
A teen forger and thief forms a criminal crew from her high school friends (and crush) to perform a series of heists leading to the location of her missing mother in this action-packed contemporary YA novel.
By day, seventeen-year-old Fiona Spangler runs small cons for her ritzy prep-school classmates: getting them out of tests and forging fake hall passes. But by night, Fiona joins her dad on riskier heists: stealing back the clue-filled forgeries her mom scattered across the country before she disappeared. Fiona desperately hopes that her mother will be waiting at the end of the scavenger hunt she left behind.
And they are SO close. Just three more heists remain, but then disaster strikes when Fiona’s dad is captured by the FBI. Desperate to finish the job and save what’s left of her family, Fiona assembles of crew of teen criminals: a master of disguise who can transform into anyone, a talented hacker who only communicates in glares, and a rival con artist with a vendetta against—and possible crush on—Fiona.
All they have to do is perform three nearly impossible heists, solve her mother’s incredibly complex clues, and evade the FBI. Easy, right?

My sneakers squeak like a warning as I breeze through the lobby of the Hotel Galvez and Spa in Galveston Texas, keeping my eyes focused on the painting at the far end of the long downstairs hallway.

These teen heist books are usually a lot of fun, and obviously, I am there for the romance element.
They sure are! Same, Sam! 😉
Although the idea of teens being able to do these high level heists is a littttle far-fetched for me, this does sound very exciting!
Very true! 😉
