Cover Thoughts: fun
Review: My favorite part of this book is when the group is in the hotel and they are bull-shiting conversation while they scan for listening devices. That and I suppose the scene where Gigi gets her nickname, but I feel that scene moved much to fast.
This book is across between Anthony Horowitz - Alex Rider series and a mini gossip girls when gossip girls was still good (aka like the first season).
It was a quick simple read. Not to much time left to think. Gigi is given the opportunity to make her own decisions. When lies come out they are full brought out and dealt with, they don't just slide by like the lie was fine. She makes a big deal about David lying to her and that was a reasonable reaction. Her reaction after that was also reasonable.
I would have like to have gotten to know the group more and am kinda sad that the first mission wasn't a group mission. I will definitely be keeping an eye out for the rest of the series.
