Editorial Reviews

KLIATT - Amanda MacGregor
Sixteen-year-old Kelly's life has never really been typical. After her parents died in a plane crash when she was six, Kelly bounced around foster homes and orphanages. A computer genius, Kelly is now about to graduate from college. Since she is tall, blonde, and gorgeous, Kelly's technological skills surprise people, who tell her she doesn't look like the stereotypical computer geek. While at college, Kelly hacks into the government system, trying to find information about the father of the boy she likes, David. Her crime is quickly uncovered and she is taken into custody. It is here that she discovers that David had been sent to recruit Kelly for The Specialists, a team of young adults who excel in different areas. The government will train them, give them new identities, and then send them to do undercover work. Now going by the nickname "Gigi," she is sent with David to Ushbania, a country in Eastern Europe, to free David's father. It just so happens that his father's kidnapper also runs a modeling school. Gigi goes undercover as a model and David pretends to be her photographer. Together, they must pull off an elaborate plot to find and free David's father before it's too late. The majority of the story is spent explaining who the Specialists are, how they got to the school, and the rigorous training schedules. The concept is fun and it's nice to see a girl as a spy, a role usually reserved for boys in action books. The large cast of secondary characters muddles up the plot, though they are likely being introduced for larger roles in forthcoming books. Hopefully future books will also include more action.
