Clean Fiction to the Rescue

Have you ever read a book where you just want to scream at the main character for making out (constantly) with her boyfriend. Or where the boy hits on all the girls in town and doesn't care when he hurts his girlfriend's feelings. I hate having to read about these things! Seriously we deal with it enough in real life. Now I'm not saying I think for a girl to kiss a guy is wrong, trust me I love a little romance. The thing is when I read a book, I want to be completely comfortable with what I'm reading. I want to be able to tell my grandmother to read the book and not be embarrassed when she calls me to talk to me about it...because trust me my grandmother calls a lot. Authors that can write amazing books that are clean should be applauded! Here are some great clean fiction:

Heist Society (Heist Society Series #1) by Ally Carter: NOOK Book Cover
Heist Society by Ally Carter
When Katarina Bishop was three, her parents took her to the case it. For her seventh birthday, Katarina and her Uncle Eddie traveled to steal the crown jewels. When Kat turned fifteen, she planned a con of her own--scamming her way into the best boarding school in the country, determined to leave the family business behind. Unfortunately, leaving "the life" for a normal life proves harder than she'd expected. Soon, Kat's friend and former co-conspirator, Hale, appears out of nowhere to bring her back into the world she tried so hard to escape. But he has good reason: a powerful mobster's art collection has been stolen, and he wants it returned. Only a master thief could have pulled this job, and Kat's father isn't just on the suspect list, he is the list. Caught between Interpol and a far more deadly enemy, Kat's dad needs her help. For Kat there is only one solution: track down the paintings and steal them back. So what if it's a spectacularly impossible job? She's got two weeks, a teenage crew, and hopefully just enough talent to pull off the biggest heist in her family's (very crooked) history--and, with any luck, steal her life back along the way.-Lets just say that Ally Carter is by far my favorite author! If you haven't read the Gallagher Girl series...READ IT! I absolutely love her writing style and the fact that she writes about spies, secret undercover agents, and thieves just makes it all better. :)

It was very charming, teens and adults would love this book! I loved it and not just because it was a great fairy tale :)
