I think I threw up in my mouth a little when I saw this book was published by "Disney Hyperion," but it ended up being nicely done. It's about a girl who goes to a secret boarding school for spies--her mother is the headmistress--and who falls for an ordinary kid from town. The romance struck me as pretty thin, but as the protagonist is 15, I had no problem believing it. The portrayal of the school is nicely done with fun details and surprises throughout. The narrative is slangy and fast-moving. As boarding school stories go, it's much less involved than the encyclopedic world Harry Potter and much more fleshed-out than the textureless world of A Great and Terrible Beauty, which I really loathed. I'd recommend this to a younger teen or reluctant reader.
