This was a somewhat disappointing start for action and adventure August. The ideas were good but the story line weak. I liked the setting of an academy for young girls to become spies and the overtones of girl power/girls can do anything but the having the main character falling for a “regular guy” was a cliché from all the TV shows it makes reference to (such as Alias and Buffy). Despite this, I am tempted to read some more of the series to see whether the stories go beyond romance formula and move into the exciting action/adventure that we get hints of later in the book.
