Also Known As

Also Known As - Robin Benway It was a fun book and I enjoyed it, but it was far from the best teenage spy novels that I've read. It was perfect for those days when you don't want to think too much though. The plot is pretty straightforward. Maggie is a girl whose assignement is to get close to a young boy, in order to gain access to his father's documents. Of course, she falls in love with said boy. As soon as a few things are revealed, it is also rather obvious what is really going on. This is the main flaw of Also Known As. What I suppose was meant to be a big plot twist was not surprising at all.

The best character was Roux, the third member of the teenage trio. She is a girl who likes parties too much and who lives more or less alone, because her parents travel a lot. She's funny and, even though she may not look like it, resourceful when it's necessary.

It took me ages to finish this book because I barely had time to read, not because it was bad. It's the kind of book that you can read in an afternoon. Not a bad book if you want something a bit mysterious, but don't want to think too much.
