|Property of Pen to Paper|
After having a WONDERFUL Christmas, I feel quite greedy for posting a Wishlist post right after this. I'm in such a grateful mood that I want nothing. However, this is a book that isn't published until 2013, so that doesn't mean I'm greedy...right?
Being a 16-year-old safecracker and active-duty daughter of international spies has its moments, good and bad. Pros: Seeing the world one crime-solving adventure at a time. Having parents with super cool jobs. Cons: Never staying in one place long enough to have friends or a boyfriend. But for Maggie Silver, the biggest perk of all has been avoiding high school and the accompanying cliques, bad lunches, and frustratingly simple locker combinations. Then Maggie and her parents are sent to New York for her first solo assignment, and all of that changes. She'll need to attend a private school, avoid the temptation to hack the school's security system, and befriend one aggravatingly cute Jesse Oliver to gain the essential information she needs to crack the case . . . all while trying not to blow her cover.
Did you read that amazing-ness? Because I don't know how anybody can't be excited for this. She's a spy, going to New York (my dream home), going undercover, and it's all written by Robin Benway!
I'm reading one of her novels right now: Audrey, Wait! thanks to the incredible Alice from Alice in Readerland. I'll post a review of it once I'm done, but her writing is great. So along with the mentioned things above, I really don't see how it can get any better.
Also, I'd like to point out something:
You guys, just take a moment and look. It's not gorgeous or anything, but I adore it. It reminds me of another spy book (well, series) The Gallagher Girls by Ally Carter. The lower part of her outfit in this cover is so cute that I wouldn't be able to pull off, but my little sister could. Then there's all the different words in the background. Espionage. Mole. Spy. Sleuth.
