Okay, so I m fresh out of finishing this book and DANG do I feel good about reading Yeah, yeah, you guessed it I love this book.Now, let s talk about the epic action y fighting pew pew stabby stabby scenes I liked those Lucienne was a favorite of mine.I find the idea of WOMEN agents standing up, fighting, and fending for themselves an amazing idea It supports feminism altogether.

    3. Really enjoyed this concept for a historical fiction novel The main character was a spy during WW2 for an organization called Covert Operations She is strong willed, and throughout the book, learns to be confident and independent Although the characters themselves are fictional, the book is based on stories of women spies throughout history Definitely a topic I was not super familiar with Great read for middle school students.

    4. What a splendid book It reminded me a little of Violins of Autumn, and it s almost as good The plot twists and turns almost constantly with traitors and plots and vital information that may or may not be true Also, as far as I can remember, there was no swear words except, I think, for a French one that, admittedly, was used several times and one of the only quibbles I have is that there was no romance and no really great male characters except Major Harken But it s an awesome read all the same [...]

    14. It was definitely an interesting book I love how it gave us the view of a girl undercover agent Usually we only hear about one side of the war, but did we ever think about the undercover agents working risking their lives to overthrow Hitler in the war I sure didn t After the Nazis killed her brother, she Lucie Blaise naively volunteered to do her part in the war I m not exactly sure she thought this through throughly, but what can I say If I had a brother, and he was killed in the war, I would [...]

    21. I initially loved this book It was two of my favorite genres historical fiction AND mystery It was my dream book of sorts And for a while, it was Lucie and the whole cast of characters were fantastic, they had personality and spunk and were very fleshed out However, my impression of it severely soured when I reached the turning point of the book It utterly baffles me why the author decided to sprinkle some awkward dystopian esque plot in the second half It was incredibly boring to hear Lucie rep [...]

Loved this book A real page turner that s for absolute sure it kept you reading and interested Perfectly written and descriptions are still stuck in my mind now Now it did get me down at times because of the war aspect, but what I truly saw from this book was how empowering and how amazing and shocking the plot twists were Some of the parts left me heart wrenched at times Main character is driven and smart I felt bad because she had been hurt so many times, never showed it though It was sad how [...]

    25. In my personal opinion, this wasn t one of the best books I have read I couldn t find myself getting into the book, although it had a good plotline I feel like if the plot was executed in a faster pace, it may have grabbed my attention a bit Lucy, the main character, didn t make me feel like she was 16, but I applaud the author because it shows Lucy s personality She had to grow up very quickly in order to be a spy for America in World War II I love historical fiction books, and this book made [...]

    29. I like the idea of a 16 year old doing her part for the war I bought the French connection, and liked the beginning of the book where there was a group working together I thought the struggle and guilt associated with assassination very realistic I wouldn t have minded a little down time between the blunder so I could see the characterization instead of just being told.I knew who the traitor was early on.If there s a sequel, I will read it willingly.
