Perfect Cover by Jennifer Lynn Barnes
What is it about? High school sophomore Toby Klein is an expert computer hacker – and a complete social outcast. So when Bayport High’s top-of-the-food-chain cheerleaders invite her to try out, she knows something’s up. Turns out the peppy airheads with the flawless appearances have a secret: Bayport High’s varsity squad is an undercover team of elite government operatives. Who would suspect a cheerleader?
What did you think of it & why did you pick it up: Saying this book is entertaining would be an understatement. At the beginning, we’re introduced to the classic high school hierarchy. Our third-level-black belt, Pentagon-hacking, combat-boot-wearing protagonist is very near the bottom. I loved Perfect Cover. Toby is the perfect mix of sarcasm and hilarity, which her cheerleader counterparts are actually not as shallow as we’re lead to believe. The characters are wonderful: the word-building is even better. Jennifer Lynn Barnes managed to produce a fun book where the comedy doesn’t override the plot, and the plot isn’t completely predictable.
It was awesome! Everyone should check this out!
