-------------------------Goodreads summary

The Goods
Meeting the Team after Kelly gets her first mission. Hilarious.
The action once they leave the compound.
I love the idea of each one being brilliant in their own way.

The Bads
How cliche is it to have a blonde barbie model girl actually being a computer coding nerd?
Kelly kind of annoys me. She's just not very likable.
Predictable. If I tell you the premise, you can probably tell me the entire story.

The Consensus
A fun read, and I hope I can track down the rest of the series somewhere!

The Recommendation
Check it out from the library when you need a fast, light read.

3.5 Stars / 5

  6. This really does sound like it would be a "cute" book, if a little cliche. But I may check this one out - if I happen to see it ;)
