Two Lies and a Spy

Two Lies and a Spy - Kat Carlton This book was a fun, fast-paced read. (Like most, if not all YA spy books, it requires a fair amount of suspension of disbelief.)I liked Kari and her brainy little brother Charlie -- though poor Charlie got ditched a lot throughout the course of the story. There were aspects of the story that were fun, and overall I enjoyed the book. The plot took an unexpected turn that really pleased me... Kari's parents are accused of being double agents … and they actually are. Which made me very happy - I mean, not for the kids, obviously, but because I thought this would be the more predictable kind of "my parents are innocent and I must clear their name" book and got something far more unexpected: a "I thought I knew my parents but I don't know them at all" kind of book..The ending makes it clear that there is another book in the works, and the aforementioned plot twist plus a developing love triangle could provide great opportunities for angst and action. I'm hoping that Charlie gets to play more of a role too!Review coming August 26 and a giveaway -- stop by YA Romantics
