UNDERCOVER GIRL is total action, intrigue and fun.

   Although Jesse Sharpe is just a kid, she's also a secret agent for C2 a secret government agency.  In fact, she's been trained to be a spy all her life and has incredible special skills like martial arts. She's a genius and has all sorts of cool spy gadgets at her disposal. But she's never been in the real world outside C2. They've controlled her life forever because she's an orphan and the organization is her legal guardian. When the story starts, Jessie is getting her first  real mission and a chance to explore the world outside.  She's partnered with Liam, a grown-up man who isn't pleased to be stuck with a "thumb sucker." She has to prove herself as they take on a mission to save a girl from a kidnapping plot.
   The book is non-stop action, almost like a fast paced movie thriller. There's lots of intrigue both in her mission and about her own mysterious past. The more she learns, the more she suspects that maybe everything she thinks she knows, might not be what it seems. It was a fun and exciting read.
