They're technically children's on the verge of YA.
I put this up for you Jasmine because I want to know if you still like them. (If you ever get time to read them with school starting).

I think they get a little better with each one. A lot of fun. Good for 5th-8th grad probably.

Jasmine  (jadorejas94) | 950 comments That age groups perfect for these books I think. But I'm going to try and continue reading these, especially if I need a light fund read. :D

Lani (crahfty) I read the first and thought it was ok. It's definately for the younger teens. I'm with you Jasmine-I may pick up the rest of the series if I need a light fun read.

They're very cute. As long as you look at them as a kids book you'll enjoy them. If not, you'll think they're rather juvenile. I read them when I've had a bad day and just need something silly to take my mind off life.

Tya | 846 comments Do these get better as they go along? I read the first one and the writing bothered me (even though I stinking LOVE Heist Society by the same author) she just seemed to be beating you over the head with how special/awesome the girls are. About midway through I noticed that it was written, at least once, on every single page that these girls are prettier/smarter/whatever-er more than you will EVER be. And if it wasn't mentioned on one page, it was mentioned twice as often on the next page...I guess it wasn't very subtle for spy book, lol.

Heist Society is YA. These are kids. That's why the writing is bothersome. I did start to like them a little better with each book. They've just become fun reads for me now. I have a problem with a lot of kid books. I just can't stay entertained. I think 3 and 4 get a little more interesting.

Tya | 846 comments I didn't know that they were classified differently. At my library Heist Society and the GG are both Young Teen books. I have heard that they get better. That first one was just so annoying, but if its for kids I guess that makes sense.

She intentionally made Heist Society for older kids. At least, that's what her website said.
I really enjoyed Heist Society as well.

I own the first three and have already read the first one... Really enjoyed it, too. Does anyone know other spy books for YA?
