The Con Code by Shana Silver
The Con Code follows teenage con artist Fiona Spangler and her quest to find her mother by cracking the codes she left behind on forgeries all over the United States. By day, she’s a student at an elite prep school in San Francisco where she pulls off small cons for her classmates. When Colin O’Keafe, the son of a prominent FBI agent starts attending school with Fiona, the two quickly clash. As it turns out Colin is somewhat of a con artist of his own, and neither of them are looking for competition. But when Fiona’s father is captured by the FBI, the two put aside their differences to track down the remaining forgeries, and hopefully find Fiona’s mother once and for all.
This was the second book I read from author Shana Silver, and I think I liked it even more than her first book, Mind Games. It reminds me a lot of the Gallagher Girls series crossed with Ocean’s 8. It was such a fun story! The story is told entirely in the first person from Fiona’s perspective. I liked Fiona but she definitely had an interesting moral compass. As the story went on, I liked her more and more.
