Loved this book-the sneaky, lock-cracking, scarcastic Maggie has a first experience as a real high school girl at a Private School in NYC. Entertaining, funny and fast-pace.

This was a great book! The characters were very likeable and a little quirky. The story was good and the suspense was great. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who likes suspense.

OMG! I found another spy book that is even in the same ballpark as the Gallagher Girl Series! The book was so fast- paced and interesting, definitely no boring parts. Also hilarious, I love Roux almost as much as Maggie! Plus Jesse! A MUST READ on any girl's list!

fun spy romp infused with teenage drama, where characters impress each other with their use of words like 'amenable' & drink lots of coffee...

This book would be a good pairing to "Boy Nobody" - also about a teenager infiltrating the high school scene - this one from the girl's perspective, "Boy" from the boy's. Much lighter in tone (it's nice that there is a teen who likes and works with her parents) but a similar theme where emotions get in the way of the assignment. Enjoyable.
