Positive: Oh, the caper. What an awesome crime they pulled off (It’d be so cool to hold a huge, cursed emerald…wait, on second thought maybe not) and then the twisted caper at the end! Boy, Kat and her team are wicked smart.
Positive: Kat. She’s so intelligent and yet very vulnerable, especially when it comes to asking for help. Oh, and in love. Poor girl. She likes Hale so much but she’s determined to keep her distance. Luckily, Hale isn’t quite so willing to let her do that.
Positive: The cons. I love the crazy names, the people involved (I mean, who doesn’t love Hamish and Angus? Crazy Scots.), and the conning of the cons.
Wish: That Kat seemed more her age. She’s supposed to be sixteen (is that right? Maybe I’m wrong.) but she acts much older. Maybe it’s because of the type of family she grew up in or the work she does, I’m not sure. Whatever the reason, it didn’t take away from my enjoyment of the story.
Overall: So awesome. UNCOMMON CRIMINALS is a fun, fast-paced summer read.
(Sorry for the kind of babble-y review. It’s late and I’m thinking I probably shouldn’t write anymore tonight. Still, this book did rock.)
