Reviews

Gr 7-10-Maggie Silver is a plucky 17-year-old who travels the world with her parents who work for a super-secret espionage organization known as the Collective. Her father is a whiz with languages, her mother is an expert hacker, and Maggie specializes in cracking safes and picking locks. Due to her parents' clandestine careers, Maggie has evaded attending high school, but their latest assignment and Maggie's first solo job sends her into a New York City private school where she must befriend Jesse Oliver and blend in like any other teenager. Somewhat predictably, she falls for her target and a romance blossoms. The story's strongest and most interesting plot points revolve around Maggie's relationships with Jesse, her parents, and her new friend Roux rather than her identity as a spy. Teens will surely relate to the realistic characters and the situations that Maggie encounters and enjoy the humorous bits throughout (Jesse and Maggie's first date is particularly hilarious). Benway's narration of her novel (Walker, 2013) is excellent and moves at a fast pace. Fans of Ally Carter's "Gallagher Girls" series will definitely enjoy this audiobook. A great choice for libraries with teens who like their mysteries mixed with some mean girl drama and light-hearted romance.-Nicole Martin, Grafton-Midview Public Library, OH (c) Copyright 2013.
