My daughter Molly, age 8, comments: "It's a story about spies. There are 3 girls that are obnoxious and saracastic. There's Cailyn who just acts like the star of the show...she want's to be the center of attention. There's Jo who's father was killed when she was 14. And there's Therisa who just doesn't like to get into danger. "They go after some guy named Jonathan, but he's really on the good side. He's just pretending to be with Antonio and Alfred. They're trying to regain 'the green disk', a CD with something important on it. "Cailyn's undercover job is a janitor. Jo's undercover job is translator. And Therisa's is a telephone operator."
When I first saw "License to Thrill" out in bookstores I thought it looked SO STUPID. The cover has a bunch of girls dressed in leather pants looking very suspicious so I thought it would be a very stupid book. Then a couple of months later I was out of stuff to read so I decided to buy it-just for the heck of it- and I found out it was REALLY GOOD. I really love the characters (I can identify with Caylin the most) because there exaggerated versions of today's teens and I thought that was funny. I also like how they get all this cool first class stuff like: limos, cool little gadgets (the lipstick cam), expensive clothes, and they got to stay at The Ritz hotel which had jacuzzis and more nifty things like that. The story is also very interesting, I loved how they all got undercover jobs and how the ending was not what I was suspecting. This is a awesome book though the title and the cover might throw you off, so BUY IT.
Believe me, after reading a few chapters of this first book, you will not want to stop until you've got all the rest in your grubby little hands. You'll also be wishing that someone would come along and make you the fourth Spy Girl. Come on: designer clothes, awesome gadgets, cool disguises-- what's not to love? Well, maybe the extreme danger..... These books are so unrealistic it's funny, but you'll be too addicted to care.
