This book is filled with great characters and wonderful scenes. It's fun to follow the main character as she tries to understand the jet-setting, secretive world in which she suddenly finds herself. Traveling between the glamorous cities of L.A., N.Y., Paris and New Orleans, our protagonist goes from adventure to adventure meeting memorable characters and learning how she does indeed have the qualities to excel in a career with a mysterious team that aims that makes the world a better place.
