3 stars: 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."

Published February 26th 2013 by Bloomsbury Juvenile US.

I don't really have much to say about this one. It was a cute, fluffy story. I began it a week or two ago and it took me a very long time to get through the end of the book. Seriously, I only had about 15 pages left, if that, and I would start reading and fall asleep. Each time, I got about one paragraph further. Then I had to stop and think and try to remember what happened earlier in the book. It's not a story that will really stay with you; it's just a light story that you can read if you need a break from more serious literature. While it took me a while to get through the end, I would still classify this as a very easy read.
