Heist Society by Ally Carter

I recommend this book for girls aged 12-14.

Fans of Spy-type novels or Ally Carter will love her new installment 'Heist Society'.

Put yourself in the shoes of world-class thief, Katarina Bishop, daughter of the infamous Bobby Bishop. When Kat's dad is framed for stealing some priceless artwork, Kat must leave her attempt at a normal life and steal the paintings back, but that won't prove easy...

Set in the real world, Ally Carter uses situations that you can believe, but don't think would happen. But her lifelike characters make you feel as if you're in the book yourself!

 With nail-biting suspense, and twists and turns that you can't imagine, you'll find the story leaping off the page!

P.S. The First cover is Australian and the Second Cover is American

    Vampire Beach series by Alex Duval

    1. Bloodlust
    2. Initiation
    3. Ritual 
    4. Legacy
    5. High Stakes
    6. Hunted

    I recommend Vampire Beach for girls aged 13 -15. If you're a fan of Vampire Novels, then you'll love this new series by Alex Duval.

    Be swept away and live the glamorous life of Jason Freeman, who just moved to the exclusive, gated community, DeVere Heights in Malibu. 
    Jason lives the high life of DeVere Heights, partying with beautiful people, and of course, Sienna Devereux. 
    Jason soon learns, that these parties are not as innocent as they look. Behind the gates of the somewhat perfect DeVere Heights lies a deadly secret that doesn't want to be discovered...
    Alex Duval is a great author, he uses simple language that won't leave you confused and reaching for a dictionary, and he uses real life situations and settings, but puts a spin on them.

    A fresh take on vampires and the vampire world is mixed in with the high lives and frivolous parties of the elite to create a page turning saga of 6 books full of unexpected twists and turns that will have you craving more...

    The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare

    2. City of Ashes
    3. City of Glass

    I recommend the Mortal Instruments trilogy for girls, possibly boys, aged 12 - 14.
    If you like fantasy that is intermingled into the real world, then this is the book for you!
    A new world is created by the fabulous author Cassandra Clare who weaves believable and comedic characters that will make you laugh out loud.
