Waiting on Wednesday (27)

WAITING ON WEDNESDAY is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking The Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

Also Known As by Robin Benway
Pages: 320
Publisher: Walker
Pub date: February 2013


Also Known As is the story of Maggie, a gifted teenage safe cracker, who works alongside her parents as a spy for the mysterious entity known as the Collective. When she's assigned to infiltrate a private Manhattan high school, she's forced to make friends, investigate the mysterious Jesse, and solve the case, all without blowing her cover.

(From Robin's blog.)

Why i'm waiting:

I adore Ally Carter's works, which are about spies and thief, so it's no wonder i chose Also Known As by Robin Benway this week. I discovered Also Known As from a blogger (Head Stuck in a Book - her Waiting on Wednesday choices so check them out!) i follow. When i read "gifted teenage safe cracker" and "spy" i had already clicked "to read" on Goodreads.

What are you waiting on?
