Mini Review: Also Known As by Robin Benway

It's been a while since I read this book, but I honestly keep thinking back to it and how cute it was!  I loved Maggie the whole time.  Her voice was so distinct and adorable and easy to relate to.  She was awkward and normal and I just adored that about her.  She was also smart....and smart girls in fiction are my kind of girls!

So there was mystery and intrigue, and it was all well done...but there was romance, too!  (And we all know I'm a romance lover.)  It was all so cute and happy and squeal-y.  I remember there was one scene were I kind of rolled my eyes (I don't even remember what it was at this point, so it must have been relatively unimportant in the grand scheme of things) but for the most part I was swooning!

I genuinely enjoyed this book and the spy action it brought to my life, so I will definitely be continuing on to the second book, GOING ROGUE.  I also adore Robin.  I met her at a Sarah J Maas event two years ago and she was such a dream to talk to!  Very encouraging and lovely.  I highly recommend reading her books if you want something light and funny and sweet.

Which is more dangerous: being an international spy... or surviving high school?

Maggie Silver has never minded her unusual life. Cracking safes for the world's premier spy organization and traveling the world with her insanely cool parents definitely beat high school and the accompanying cliques, bad lunches, and frustratingly simple locker combinations. (If it's three digits, why bother locking it at all?)

But when Maggie and her parents are sent to New York City for her first solo assignment, her world is transformed. Suddenly, she's attending a private school with hundreds of "mean girl" wannabes, trying to avoid the temptation to hack the school's elementary security system, and working to befriend the aggravatingly cute son of a potential national security threat... all while trying not to blow her cover.

From the hilarious and poignant author of Audrey, Wait! comes a fast-paced caper that proves that even the world's greatest spies don't have a mission plan for love.

Totally clean!
