Synopsis: Being a 16-year-old safecracker and active-duty daughter of international spies has its moments, good and bad. Pros: Seeing the world one crime-solving adventure at a time. Having parents with super cool jobs. Cons: Never staying in one place long enough to have friends or a boyfriend. But for Maggie Silver, the biggest perk of all has been avoiding high school and the accompanying cliques, bad lunches, and frustratingly simple locker combinations.

Then Maggie and her parents are sent to New York for her first solo assignment, and all of that changes. She'll need to attend a private school, avoid the temptation to hack the school's security system, and befriend one aggravatingly cute Jesse Oliver to gain the essential information she needs to crack the case . . . all while trying not to blow her cover.

My Review: Maggie is a 16 year old safe cracker, her parent’s work for a group called ‘The Collective’, the group give out assignments and try to stop the outside world finding out about them.

Maggie is good at her job, the only downside is they are always moving, she doesn’t attend school and she has no friends, her life is boring.

Spy Society had me laughing a lot, Maggie is great, witty and a super safe cracker.

Maggie is home schooled as she travels the world while her parents complete assignments. Maggie is bored because it is the summer holidays and she is stuck at home while her parents are working a case in Iceland, she wants a case of her own.

When Maggie finally gets a case of her own, she to attend high school and get close to a real boy not one she day dreams about.

Her mission is simple, get close to Jessie Oliver and retrieve a file that his dad has that will expose ‘The Collective’.

Maggie has no experience of being and acting like a normal teenager so she makes errors plus high school is terrifying, her parents are in for a massive shock when their baby girl starts high school.

Maggie becomes friends with an awesome girl named Roux. Roux likes to get drunk because her parents are never home they never know she’s always drunk, Roux also loves to have fun, the only problem is everyone at school hates her.

One of the best things about the story is that Maggie doesn’t fall instantly in love with Jessie Oliver.

While at a Halloween party at Jessie’s house Maggie manages to lift the file but she later finds out that there is a double agent in ‘The Collective’ and she enlists help from Jessie and Roux to expose them.

If you love spy stories then Spy Society is a good quick, fun read.
