Maggie is a spy. Well actually she’s a safecracker, her parents are the international spies. But together they’ve taken done some bad guys. Now it’s time for Maggie’s solo assignment! The agency is sending her to high school. All she has to do is befriend the insanely cute Jesse Oliver, and get the information to bring down his dad. Oh, and not blow her cover. Easy peasy… right?
This book was adorable! It was fun, cute, quick and just what I needed after a super serious read. This was my first experience with Robin, even though I’ve heard awesome things about her previous books, and I can assure this will not be my last. I dare you to read this book and not instantly connect with Maggie. She might be a safecracker, which I have absolutely no shared experience with, but she is such a relatable character you can’t help but love her instantly. And it’s not only Maggie you’ll love. Her “mean” but endearing friend Roux, Angelo, even Jesse. I LOVED the characters in this novel.
And the story wasn’t too bad either! Sure Maggie makes a lot of mistakes, but that’s what made the story so much fun to read.
If you’re looking for something that’s fun and is going to make you feel good at the end, I definitely recommend Also Known As!
