The Ocean’s 8 trailer dropped today and we can’t. stop. watching. it. Unfortunately we have to wait until next June to see it, but that doesn’t mean we’re just going to sit over here stamping our feet like Veruca Salt. What are we doing? Assembling a crime team made up entirely of our favorite YA heroines, of course!
MARGO, Paper Towns by John Green
Margo has more than enough cred to craft a robbery of epic proportions–we wouldn’t mess with any girl capable of pulling off an eleven-part suburban vengeance scheme in the dark of night.
SHAZAD, Rebel of the Sands by Alwyn Hamilton
As the leader of the rebellion’s right-hand woman and Amani’s best friend, Shazad is the perfect person to help Margo figure out the logistics of the plan–and help carry it out.
EMIKA, Warcross by Marie Lu
Every expert crime team needs a hacker, and who wouldn’t want the one who managed to hack the most popular game in the world?
LOLA, Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins
As an expert fashionista, Lola would be an unbelievable asset to the team when it comes to disguises.
MARIKO, Flame in the Mist by Renee Ahdieh
Running a crime team is a lot easier when you’ve got an inventor on staff–especially one with the ingenuity and scientific knowledge of Mariko.
HELENE, An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir
As a ruthless combat fighter and one of the most experienced Masks in the Empire, Helene’s many skills would be an asset to any crime team.
ZOE, Trouble is a Friend of Mine by Stephanie Tromly
As resident teen detective Digby’s best friend, Zoe has more than enough experience going with the flow for whatever ridiculous scheme or wacky hijinks arise.
ROSE, Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead
With her expert fighting skills and flagrant disregard for rules, Rose would be the perfect addition to a team dedicated to causing a little chaos.
