Jake cheated on Julia and she took him back? They have been since that night at the party. For Maggie Silver, the compensation for the vast inconvenience of being a teenage spy has been avoiding high school and its accompanying cliques, bad lunches, and frustratingly simple security on the lockers. Is it what friendship is in Maggie's world? This is another gem I found at the library and decided to take home with me. Robin Benway Best Books Emmy and Oliver In Emmy and Oliver author Robin Benway, introduces the readers to two best friends, Emily and Oliver. There is not even an ounce of bad boy jerk in this guy! I rarely ever laugh while reading a book although that may be due to the I-read-dark-books thing!! But as it turned out, it's just a facade.
It may have been September in Iceland, but it was already getting cold out. Her parents are spies and she is a masterful safe cracker. Then Maggie and her parents are sent to New York for her first solo assignment, and all of that changes. Especially when the assignment includes a very cute boy Maggie might accidentally fall in love with. That's not to say there's anything wrong with it - in fact, Maggie and Jesse are such a lovely couple that I read the entire book with a massive smile on my face. The Collective had stationed us in Reykjavík, Iceland, over the summer. Mainly because of the characters.
I recommend this to anyone who wants a super fun, hilarious read that will have you giggling out loud. Не серая мышь, ботаничка или что-то типа того, а некогда популярная девчонка, переспавшая с парнем лучше подруги, из-за чего стала парией в школе. But she has always been in the background, her parents do the intel work and then she comes in at the end to crack the safe and get the proof. But when it comes to me the only things that matter are how I feel while reading the book and after reading the book. While the spy backstory is a fun hook, where Also Known As really shines is in the relationships. I didnt like how it was handled 'off-screen'.
She doesn't know anything but blending in because spies don't stand out. You need a haircut, my mom kept telling me, sounding like she did when I was four years old. Cute but I just found it a bit boring. Then again, the only character I didn't like was the villain, but you know. My mother was working with the crew tonight as planned; she was the reason the door was unlocked.
And as it turned out, Jesse's not a bad kid. And Maggie can't deny her growing feelings for cute, funny, and sweet Jesse. I was wearing black jeans and a black sweater underneath a dark denim coat that had a shearling lining. He thinks I have a photographic memory, which is fine by me. The brilliant parts of the book: there were lots of them. Jesse was a great friend and boyfriend for Maggie.
I would definitely recommend it to everyone! Not only is he a skilled forger and a guide to her in her spying endeavors, but he's an adult--who isn't her parents--who Maggie trusts and relies on. Seriously, this not only the girl I'd want guarding my back in a gunfire, she's also the chick I'd love to call my best friend. It seemed fun but not really, like being the only person in an amusement park. Her parents, outrageously wealthy, are constantly traveling and rarely check up on Roux who lives alone in the Upper East Side for weeks on end. This book is about a female sleuth. I loved Maggie and Jesse I think calling him smile-worthy is perfect , but I expecially loved Roux.
It's really hard to find a book that's got such a nice, quick flow and good humor--I'd love to find more like this. What I loved is the smile-inducing way this first love is portrayed, without all the awful angst we have to stand more often than not. Maggie has been a remarkably easy teenager up until now, probably because she never had a relationship of any kind with anyone her own age, but it seems the game has changed and none of them are sure what to do. At least I think I am. Befriend local high school student, Jesse, and steal the files his father possess which could expose the members of The Collective, Maggie and her parents included.
It was just so fun!! This is such a memorable voice and definitely is one that could carry a second book or even a series, so I am thrilled by this news. At first glance, Jesse seems like a typical bad-boy, good-for-nothing student. Luckily, Jesse Oliver, like most normal people, thinks she's joking. I also wanted to be a veterinarian and a cowgirl when I was four, but things change. It's the getting out witout anyone getting their heart broken which might be tough. Sass Queen, if you will.
If it's three digits or less, why even bother? All the characters are walking stereotypes, exaggerated and flat. I think everyone has that one thing that just makes total sense to them, no matter what it is, and they go into the zone with it and for Maggie, it was locks. But that was before I had made friends. The Harper School definitely brought it. Angelo is yet another secondary character who really stands out in this series. She knows how to unlock pretty much any safe and lock but high school is not something she has ever practiced.
