Waiting on Wednesday (7)


Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine where bloggers feature upcoming book releases that they're looking forward to.

This week I'm eagerly anticipating...


Also Known As
by Robin Benway


Publisher:
Bloomsbury
Release Date: February 26, 2013

Synopsis (from Goodreads):
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.

Add it on Goodreads.

I'm a big fan of "Audrey, Wait!", so I was really excited to see another Robin Benway title coming out this year. I love the whole spies angle; sounds so fun!

  1. Sounds cute, but a lot like the Ally Carter spy series, no?

    1. It definitely does to an extent, but I'm sure it will stand on its own.

  4. "Private school" is a pair of words that never fail to catch my interest. It's probably one of my favorite YA settings.

    1. I enjoy that setting too, maybe because it's so different from my own experience.

    1. I can't say I'd want to read an adult crime novel with spies, but something about YA and spies is a LOT of fun.
