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.
First date: Cute! Fun! Safecracking! The relationship between Maggie and her parents is adorable, especially when they have to let her go do her job while they sit around at loose ends. Talk about overprotective parents. But in a sweet way.
Second date: A little cheesy but I do love cheese. As Maggie tries to navigate the “real” world (aka a chi-chi high school in New York City) and fulfill her first real assignment, she also makes her first real friend and have her first crush which is on the son of the guy she’s trying to get info on. Talk about coincidence! (Or not, considering she needed to get close via the cute son.) I enjoyed seeing Maggie feel her way through the high school jungle while still trying to do her job. (Even though I don’t think those in the spy game really haul their kids around the world, expecting them to open locks for them…or do they?)
Third date: Maybe not long-term-commitment worthy, ALSO KNOWN AS is definitely a good time, like that bartender you flirted with for the free drinks.
