Book Review

Publisher's Note:

Double Crossed

by Ally Carter

Overall Book Review:

I’ve seen several of my students reading and enjoying Ally Carter, but have never read any of her books myself. This fun novella had me wondering what’s taken me so long to discover her! 

Double Crossed is a gem of a quick read–exciting, well-written, and suspenseful. I breezed through it in less than half an hour, and I definitely want more of Kat, Hale, and Macey.

The mystery isn’t extremely difficult to figure out, but the interplay between the characters as well as their intriguing back stories and exciting experiences as both spies and thieves makes it all work really well.  Double Crossed is a great little appetizer that left me hungry for more. I’m checking out another Allly Carter book as soon as I can!

About the Reviewer

I’ve been an avid reader for as long as I can remember. My mother would often find me curled up in a corner, avoiding chores with a book–or two. When I was growing up, there wasn’t a large selection of YA books. I had children’s books and adult literature to choose from. I’ve come to love YA fiction as an adult and read almost nothing else when I read for pleasure–any genre will do.
