Also Known As by Robin Benway

Source: Review
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.

I adored Robin Benway's books. Audrey, Wait! and The Extraordinary Secrets of April, June, and July were funny and clever books that I adored.
Maggie was a funny and clever. I liked that she was confident about herself. She was just a great character and I loved the relationship that she had with her parents and their family friend Angelo. It was great to see in Young Adult and I hope to see it more. I also adored her friend Roux. She was very spontaneous and unpredictable. Jesse may seem like just another bad ass, but he had a past and I found it very intriguing. I found the plot to be very fast paced and intriguing. I read this whole book in one sitting. I didn't want to put it down, because I had to know what would happen next. I did not want to leave this story unfinished.  I liked the world that Benway built and I wanted to know more about it. The way that Benway wrote about a teenage spy was original and I can't wait to see what is next. Benway's writing is just amazing and I can't wait to read more. Her books are just so funny and clever. I recommend this to the fans of Ally Carter. Seriously, it has a smart and funny character, an exciting and interesting plot, and really sharp and amazing writing.
