Believe it or not, there are some drawbacks to being a 16-year old safecracker, daughter of spies, and member of a Robin Hood-esque organization that fights corruption. On the list: never getting to stay in one place long enough to have friends or a boyfriend, being the only spy ever to have a 10 p.m. curfew, and being sent on assignment to Russia. In the winter. For Maggie Silver, the major perk thus far has been the avoidance of high school, and the accompanying cliques, bad lunches, and frustratingly simple Masterlocks on the lockers(If it’s three digits or less, why even bother?). But when Maggie and her parents are sent to New York on a major assignment, though, 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 information she needs to crack the case, all while trying not to blow her cover.

Why would I want to read this book? Let me count the ways:

1. It's written by Robin Benway! I loved both of her previous books, Audrey, Wait and The Extraordinary Secrets of April, May, & June.
2. It involves spies and clandestine crime-fighting—which reminds me of Ally Carter's Gallagher Girls and Heist Society series.

Okay, so that's only two reasons, but I assure you that they are very good reasons. I think it's safe to say that I will barely be able to wait until this book comes out!
