Teaser Tuesday: Also Known As by Robin Benway

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading.
To play along just do the following:
  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
  • Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers! 

Also Known As by Robin Benway.

Also Known As - Bloomsbury USA

"You're considered a fugitive in Luxembourg, remember? This is the cotton candy of assignments. Fluffy, airy, bad for you."
-- Page 32

The next morning, after tossing and turning for most of the night, I had a shiny new plan. And like most of my plans, it involved deviousness, blatant lying, and coffee. I started with the coffee first.
-- Page 55

I'm a bit eclectic right now, reading about half a dozen books at the time. I picked Also Known As as it's about a sixteen-year-old spy, which is just perfect for a spy movie and mystery fan like me.
The story naturally is suspenseful, but has lots of funny moments, which keeps it from getting too serious. Maggie, the daughter of two spies, is doing her first assignment and has to attend high school for it. Being homeschooled before doesn't exactly prepare her for high school life, nor for cute guys and crazy best friends. I'm quite far into the book already and am beginning to wonder, if there's more to the assignment than meets the eye.

Do you read more than one book at a time as well? Leave us a comment with your teasers.

I do read more than one book at a time. This sounds like something Miss Attitude (12) would read.

I loved this one. I was laughing so hard that I couldn't keep reading on a number of occasions. Come see my teasers for Furious by Jill Wolfson and Frost Burned by Patricia Briggs. Happy reading!

The comparison of her assignment to cotton candy made me smile. Clever! I love the premise of this story.

The cover and plot summary sounds like the Gallagher Girls books by Ally Carter and I loved the ones of that series I've read. This sounds great too!

Here's my teaser from Breathe by Sarah Crossan

Happy reading!
