With a traitor in her midst, Rachel faces losing her life and her heart—all in one semester

At Blackthorn Academy, a peculiar prep school in the mountains of Pennsylvania, students are concerned with all the usual things: homework, hookups, and how to save the world. For Rachel, studying has taken a backseat to a little problem she’s having with a supervillain named Simon Blankenship, who is convinced that he’s an ancient Roman god and she’s a reincarnated goddess whom he must destroy. They’ve tangled twice before, and Rachel has beaten him narrowly both times, but now Blankenship has done something completely unexpected: He’s stolen an important ancient artifactfrom Blackthorn Academy . . . and disappeared.

She and her fellow spies in training wait for Blankenship to show himself while contemplating the possibility of a turncoat in their midst. And as if that weren’t enough, Rachel must tangle with a different kind of problem: a totally cute new student, whose eyes are just a little too pretty, and who seems to know just a little too much about Rachel and her past. She must decide quickly—is he boyfriend material, or a traitor.
This is a light and addictive espionage novel with a witty main protagonist and her crew! I really prefer these new covers in comparison to the old ones, however I still feel they need something else to fully capture your attention.

Rachel is on a new mission, to find a stolen artefact that belongs to them. But they soon become tangled into something beyond what they first expected, something that will break away friendships and cause trust to dwindle.

Rachel's character is rather witty and her humour is some-what addictive. She is certainly an interesting character who may sometimes come across as a little selfish however is one of the least; she really tries to help those who she cares about. One of her main flaws is how she doesn't exactly think about things before she does them, meaning she will unintentionally put others in danger because she doesn't want to be left out from all the action.

This novel is certainly a cliche plot direction however it it certain addictive and is written with ease. There is more action and close-shave moments in this plot in comparison to the first novel which will keep your need for action at bay. The romance in this novel was sweet however I was very pleased by the fact that it didn't take over the novel and was actually more in the background.

This is certainly a light espionage novel with witty banter that will keep you reading on a winters day.

Dead Jed is Shaun of the Dead meets Diary of a Wimpy Kid. Jed's not your typical junior high geek. He is, to use the politically-correct term, cardiovascularly-challenged. And while his parents have attempted to shield him from the implications of being 'different' for as long as they could (Jed was 8 and at a friend's sister's birthday party when he blew his lips off onto the cake in front of everyone, finally prompting the “Big Talk” from his parents and an emergency SuperGlue repair by his dad), 7th grade at Pine Hollow Middle School as a target of Robbie the supreme school bully and his pack of moronic toadies is rapidly becoming unbearable.
From being stuffed in a filled trash can as “dead meat” and into a trophy case as the bully's “prize,” to literally having his hand pulled off in the boys' room (Jed's always l…

When Mara Dyer wakes up in hospital with no memory of how she got there, or any explanation as to why the bizarre accident that caused the deaths of her boyfriend and two best friends left her mysteriously unharmed, her doctors suggest that she start over in a new city, at a new school, and just hope her memories gradually come back. 

But Mara's new start is anything but comforting. She sees the faces of her dead friends everywhere and now she's started to see other peoples deaths before they happen. Is she going crazy? As if dealing with all this isn't enough, Noah Shaw, the most beautiful boy she's ever seen, can't seem to leave her alone. But does he have her best interests at heart, or another agenda altogether? Thrilling, dark, addictive and haunting, The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer was surprising and not what I originally was expecting. I have h…
