                                      What I'm Waiting and Wishing For

Coin Heist by Elisa Ludwig -

The last place you’d expect to find a team of criminals is at a prestigious Philadelphia prep school. But on a class trip to the U.S. Mint – which prints a million new coins every 30 minutes – an overlooked security flaw becomes far too tempting for a small group of students to ignore.

United by dire circumstances, these unlikely allies – the slacker, the nerd, the athlete, and the "perfect" student – band together to attempt the impossible: rob the U.S. Mint. The diverse crew is forced to confront their true beliefs about each other and themselves as they do the wrong thing for the right reasons.

Elisa Ludwig's Coin Heist is a fun, suspenseful, and compelling thriller, told from the revolving perspectives of four teens, each with their own motive for committing a crime that could change all of their lives for the better—if they can pull it off. (Goodreads)

Why I'm Waiting and Wishing

I think by now I've established my love for heist and spy books, especially of the young adult variety. This one reminds me very much of one of my favorite series Heist Society by Ally Carter - granted her series featured a team of trained teens. Still, I love a good heist story and I'm excited to see how a team of amateurs handle a heist - I have very high hopes for this one!


Please feel free to share links to your highly anticipated reads below. It's so exciting to read about everyone else's picks and find new books to add to my TBR list!
