Description

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.

Publishers Weekly Review

Dec 24, 2012 – Maggie is a safecracking prodigy and the only child of parents who work as spies for an organization called the Collective. When the family relocates to New York City, 16-year-old Maggie lands her first assignment: befriending Jesse, a cute private school boy, to gain access to the e-mail belonging to his magazine editor father, who is suspected to be planning a revealing story about the Collective. As Maggie assimilates into life as a regular teenager, making her first friend and having her first kiss (with Jesse), she wonders if she is cut out to be a spy. Benway (The Extraordinary Secrets of April, May & June) offers a rollicking take on the “spy kids” premise, buoyed by fun characters like Maggie’s irrepressible friend Roux and a well-dressed mentor who is always ready to give Maggie sage advice—or helicopter in to save her. As is common in this genre, realism isn’t exactly at the forefront (Maggie eventually draws her friends into the assignment), but readers will be sufficiently invested to see the mission through to completion. Ages 12–up.

Customer Reviews

Meh

It was ok. I was not as impressed as I thought I would be. I really wanted another series like the Gallagher Girls books, and compared to those, this book was very disappointing.

Wow$16.99

$16.99 for an ebook? I wanted to read it but that's a bit much for a book by a little known author. Seems like an interesting book...I hope the price decreases.

Expensive

I just started reading the book, but I bought it on the kindle app because it is significantly cheaper. It was under $10.
