JKS Presents Model Spy (The Specialists #1) by Shannon Greenland Book Review

Teen genius Kelly James is in a lot of hot water. A whiz with computers, she agreed to help her college RA, David, uncover some top-secret information. After all, she doesn't have many friends and David has always been nice to her. It doesn't hurt that he's supercute and irresistible, too. All she has to do is hack into the government's main computer system. But a few hours later, her whole life changes. She is caught and taken in for questioning, only this isn't your run-of-the-mill arrest. Rather than serve a juvenile detention sentence, she accepts the option to change her name and enlist in a secret government spy agency that trains teen agents to go undercover. As if that wasn't overwhelming enough, she discovers that David works for this agency as well! And before she even begins to understand what is going on, she's sent on her first mission as an undercover model. And who better to partner with than David himself!

~ My Review ~
~ 5 of 5 Model Spy ~
Model Spy by Shannon Greenland is one of those books that is a quick fun filled read. I have not read a lot of spy books but this one is a great beginning to the series that I will continue to read. It is action packed and full of surprises that the moment you begin to read it you are hooked and need to keep reading it.

Kelly James is a teen genius who is at college. While at college her RA David asks her to hack into the governments computer system so he can get some information. Kelly agrees and she hacks into this top secret government site and David gets the information he needs. What Kelly never thought was that she would get caught. She does not have friends and keeps quiet so when David who is nice asks her to hack the computer system she agrees. Now caught and in big trouble she is brought to place where she is given an option to go to a severe Juvenile detention center or work for the government. Well what is a girl to do.... work for the government of course. 

Then she finds out that David in fact works for the government and is an agent. With this new found information Kelly is kinda shocked because she never ever would have suspected David worked for the government. As Kelly's first assignment she must go under cover as a model and oh my her partner is none other than David! She is nervous at first but then the two of them work together really well. As their assignment heats up Kelly and David will have to race the clock to discover what they need to.

What will happen to Kelly? Will she uncover the info she needs? What will happen between her and David? This is a cute must read series!
Shannon Greenland dreaded reading and writing as a kid. Ironic, as she’s now a successful award-winning author. Her 5-book series for young adults, The Specialists, as well as her other novels, received such honors as National Booksellers Best, Daphne du Maurier and Romantic Times recognition, National Readers Choice, CAPA nominee, Aspen Gold Readers Choice Award, Holt Medallion and the Popular Paperback award from the American Library Association. 

Penguin Publishing launched Greenland’s latest novel The Summer My Life Began in May 2012, and brings her entire spy series to e-form this winter. 

When not writing, Shannon’s eager for adventure outside of a book’s pages. Hiking, rafting, climbing, caving, swimming, snorkeling, sailing, surfing, mountain biking, spelunking, canoeing, power lifting, running, camping, para sailing . . . she’s done it all. 

Originally from Tennessee, the world traveler divides her time between Florida and Virginia where she mentors, tutors, and teaches math and gives authors talks at area schools.
