Here's my review for Model Spy by Shannon Greenland.
Teen genius Kelly James is in a lot of hot water. A whiz with computers, she agreed to help her college RA, David, uncover some top-secret information. After all, she doesn't have many friends and David has always been nice to her. It doesn't hurt that he's supercute and irresistible, too. All she has to do is hack into the government's main computer system. But a few hours later, her whole life changes. She is caught and taken in for questioning, only this isn't your run-of-the-mill arrest. Rather than serve a juvenile detention sentence, she accepts the option to change her name and enlist in a secret government spy agency that trains teen agents to go undercover. As if that wasn't overwhelming enough, she discovers that David works for this agency as well! And before she even begins to understand what is going on, she's sent on her first mission as an undercover model. And who better to partner with than David himself!
Model spy is the first book in the specialist series. And oh boy I liked this book. GiGi, a.k.a. Kelly James, is a funny character, she’s the type that is funny without realizing it, what makes it twice as hilarious. And she is a total computer nerd, which I liked about her. You don’t come across very smart people in book often, which is a shame actually. But while GiGi is smart she’s also naïve, she believes people way to easily. But I hope that this will grow out of her in the next books. Another thing that could have been better and that I hope improves in the next books is that the other characters were flat characters. They were each great persons with their own story and I hope to find out more about them in the next books.
So this book was a quick, happy read that I really enjoyed.
