Also Known As by Robin Benway
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Maggie Silver discovered her talent at a young age. She can pick any lock and crack any safe. Since she has been raised within a special spy organization, she uses her skills for the greater good instead of personal gain. Now it is time for her first solo assignment. Maggie and her parents return to New York City and not only does Maggie have to navigate the waters of her first mission, she also has to learn the nuances of friendship and high school. Her assignment is to become friends with the son of a national security threat and hopefully stop the exposure of the spy organization. Can she complete her mission without becoming emotionally attached to the students around her? Will high school itself be the hurdle she can’t overcome?
Also Known As is the first book in a new series with the same title. The action is fast paced and the story starts quickly and snowballs from there. Readers who enjoyed the Gallagher Girls and Heist Society series will find themselves easily falling for a new, fun loving caper solving teenager. Although I can see boys enjoying this novel, the main audience who will be flocking to these pages will be of the female persuasion. This fun read can be read slowly or as I did in one reading session. Benway has created a leading lady I can’t wait to see develop into a strong young woman.
