The first part (before Josh) was great, I totally loved the setting. Boarding School? Spy School? Yes, Yes, yes please!
I loved the subjects. Various languages, lunches/breakfast/dinner that each require a language. So for instance, at lunch you would be required to speak only French, then at dinner only Korean. So much fun and a great way to learn a language. I would have loved to be at such a school. Learn about lockpicking, fingerprints, covert missions, languages and so much more. It sounds like a dream school.
At first I was worried I might not like Macey, but luckily, she isn’t overly in the picture and she also becomes less bratty and more normal as the book goes on.
Sadly, the part that I didn’t like was Josh. I am not a big fan of instalove, and this was a big case of it. She was smitten, instantly. And I can tell you, the rest of the book was like this: 30% of school, 20% spy and the rest, Josh, Josh and how to get Josh to go out with our main lead. And then of course the problem of not telling about her school and all the complications that come with that.
I did not, and I think I never will, like Mr. Solomon. My, oh my he is a prick. I really disliked him and how he acted. At times I was just hoping for a girl to actually smack his head or do some kind of ninja move on him. Sadly that never happened.
Now, will I be reading the rest of this series. No, because I fear it will be 70% Josh and only 30% awesome spy school stuff.
