Review: How I Became a Spy by Deborah Hopkinson The…
Release date: July 9, 2019
Thank you NetGalley and Delacorte Press for sharing an eARC in exchange for an honest review.
I chose this book because if the cover and the title. I am a sucker for covers and this one intrigued me. The swirling of the face, it looking like someone was being unraveled (I had just read Unwind by Shusterman) and then a title about “wild girls” made me pause to read the description of this book. Once I read it, I knew this was a book for me. I am a huge fan of dystopian novels that focus on powerful women and friendships. If you enjoy those books or are looking for one that fits that description, then you need to grab a copy of this book. Once I dove in to this story, I was hooked. Powers left me guessing until the very end and I could not predict anything. The setting was beautifully, and horrifyingly, well-written. Her character development was strong. Her plot was engaging.
This is a young adult book and has some language and violence that may not be comfortable for a younger reader. Please message me if you would like more specifics.
Go read this book. Tell me what you think.
