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.

This book would be a good pairing with "Boy Nobody" - also about a teenager infiltrating the high school scene - this one from the girl's perspective, "Boy" from the boy's. Much lighter in tone (it's nice that there is a teen who likes and works with her parents) but similar theme where emotions get in the way of the assignment. Enjoyable.

Snarkingly made fun of the spy business.
Author done her homework on safes.

After years spent being a spy for a secret government agency, Maggie is sent to the most demanding and difficult assignment in her sixteen-year career. After much convincing, she agrees to attend a private school in New York. There, Maggie must befriend Jesse, the son of a magazine editor who has acquired compromising information about the agency she works for. This task is more difficult than it seems. After all, high school is full of mean girls, relationship drama and most importantly, aggravating but attractive boys. Unlike other teenage spy books that I have read, this book does not have a serious tone, it’s a fairly light read. Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed this book.

Loved this book-the sneaky, lock-cracking, scarcastic Maggie has a first experience as a real high school girl at a Private School in NYC. Entertaining, funny and fast-pace.
