The Specialists: Model Spy by Shannon Greenland

The moment Kelly James agrees to hack into the government's files she knows she will regret it . At least she knows it will be easy for a computer genius like herself. Just mere hours after hacking into the system she is arrested. She is a lucky girl though because the agents offer her an alternative, the opportunity to go to a top secret government spy school and change her identity. She agrees, because who wouldn't want to not have to go to jail?? She quickly adjusts to the spy environment, even getting a new name - Gigi, all the while developing a crush on David, the person that persuaded her to hack the system in the first place -also part of the spy program known as the Specialists. After only a month she is sent on her first mission. Her mission: pretend to be a model while searching for a microchip that will lead to the discovery of a missing man.
For a thin book (205 pages) this book was packed with suspense and adventure. It definitely kept me turning the pages and eager to learn more of the fate of all the characters. Gigi is a very likable girl because she is smart, but not full of herself, and very realistic. What girl can't relate to getting tongue-tied around a hot guy?? There is a second book already published in the series and a third is due out in April of this year. The book definitely leaves the reader on the edge, with lots of unanswered questions. All in all this book is a light fun read and would be great for the beach or a lazy, rainy afternoon!

Reminds me of I'd Tell You I Love You, But Then I'd Have to Kill You. Have you read it? If so, is Model Spy as good?

It is alot like I'd Tell You I Love You, But Then I'd Have to Kill You! I was trying to remember what book it was similar to, so thank you. It was almost as good as I'd Tell You..., but not as good! It's still a really good read though.

I've read this book. It's awesome! Read the other books in this series as well.

And oh, I suggest you read Cross My Heart and Hope to Spy.
