Review: Two Lies and A Spy

Two Lies and A Spy

Publication Date: September 3rd 2013        
Publisher: Simon & Schuster  

Kari plunges into the world of espionage on a mission to save her parents while trying to impress the guy she’s been in love with forever.

When sixteen-year-old Kari’s dad sends her an unexpected text, she and her brother immediately go into hiding. Because when your parents are superspies and your dad declares a Code Black, it can only mean something bad. Very bad.

Kari soon discovers that her parents have been disavowed and declared traitors, and she’s determined to clear their names. Breaking into the Agency seems like a reasonable plan, especially with the help of a team that includes her long-time crush, Luke, as well as her two best friends—an expert hacker with attitude and a master martial artist—and Luke’s popular, vindictive twin sister. Oh, and a new guy, who’s as cute as he is complicated.

Alright folks, I have 12 words for you.
Two Lies and a Spy rates from cutesy to right out ridiculous.

That pretty much sums  it up perfectly, unfortunately.
I was expecting a cross between Alex Rider and Gallagher girls.
What did I get?
A mess, that's what.
