A Girl Named Digit, by Annabel Monaghan
For folks who are a bit older than the target audience, the storyline is reminiscent of True Lies (remember Arnold and Jamie Lee?) but a bit more over-the-top. It's funny, silly, and ridiculous as hell, but if you can manage to not take it seriously, this is a pretty amusing read. The romance is awkwardly adolescent but tongue in cheek (how else to describe John and Farrah's parents meeting while plotting to entrap an FBI mole)? It's nice that Farrah is math smart and bright, but I would have preferred if she wasn't as boy crazed (and if she had avoided the whole Bella Swan mope thing at the end). Still, I admire the genre mashing going on here.
