Good Reads Summary
Also Known As by Robin Benway

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

My Thoughts

My rating: 3.5 of 5 stars

Cute, fluffy and fun. It's a good in between book and it's precisely what I needed.

Maggie teen spy and safe cracker extraordinaire is funny. She's about to do her first job and must fit in with the rest of the high school bunch. I like that she's not the typical new girl at a loss about what needs doing. She knows who she is and what she has to do. But jumping in as she does, a couple of 'unexpecteds' pop up as well. And I enjoyed reading this all the more because of the same.

Especially, Roux (The unexpected ray of toxic sunshine that I had been missing) who had me impressed... I mean, talk about out there! The girl is pariah but knows why and doesn't not care but is not beat down by said fact. And to Maggie ( Little Miss Apocalypse) she's a perfect match because Maggie growing up as she has, has no idea about how to be but isn't bothered too much about that fact either. I though them perfect with the both of them going with the flow of things.

Then Jesse Oliver... dear god, It's been a long long time since I last laughed/blushed over how sweet a YA boy could be. Lately, YA's either been all about the douche bag with hidden depth or the geeky boy with cutesy charm, but Jesse Oliver is neither of those. And them together, my golly, but the word ADORABLE is the only adjective I can use right now. 

Cute and funny fluffy stuff. I needed this.
