Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo

I love a good heist story. Especially of the break-in/break-out variety. The interpersonal drama between some of the characters has been dialed up to 11, but it works because they’re all teenagers. This one was quite a page turner. I zoomed through it in just a couple of days. Extremely readable. It’s part 1 of 2 and I’ll definitely be following up with its sequel. The author does nice things with POV characters to up the suspense by concealing and then revealing information.

(This reminded me very much of Scott Lynch’s The Lies of Locke Lamora. If you liked that one, you’ll probably like this one. And vice versa, probably.)
