I really enjoyed this book. I wondered if I would struggle with believing the protagonist Gwendolyn could do what she was doing, but the author made it believable. The narrator did a fine job of performing the voices and really delivering the emotions the characters were feeling without beingnannoying. This was a fun escape.

Couldn't finish: getting my credit refunded. Therese Plummer is a great narrator, but even a great narrator can't save a bad book. The plot itself was interesting, but (in my opinion) the main character was not convincing. Few teenagers, no matter how worldly or multi-lingual they are, would behave the way Gwen does. I wanted to feel outrage when the school bully called her a pretentious snob... but when I got to the part in the book where Gwen drinks some wine and realizes that it goes perfectly with her meat, I was starting to think that *maybe* the bully had a point.
By making Gwen so difficult to relate to, the author completely turned me off the story. I hope Gwen succeeds in all of her espionage endeavors, but I just don't want to hear about them.
