about

Her CIA bosses think she’s the bomb. Kitalia Ore is positive of that fact. 

Okay, fine. Kitten MacLean. And they’re her parents, but it’s so much more fun to imagine them the other way around. And J.J., her MI6 contact? He’s in love with her. Doesn’t matter that her closest confidant, Jimmy Jones, hasn’t spoken a word to her since first grade. 

Everyone at school adores her, too. Sure, they might not know it yet, but every single student at Rimtree High is her best friend. Naturally. 

She’s just that incredible. 

When a new girl—Kit’s choice for sidekick in her daily adventures—is being bullied, however, it’s time for Kit to take charge and leave her fantasy world of fearless bravado and easy victories behind. Can the “real” Kit use her make-believe practice to her advantage? The world outside her CIA missions is far different than she’s used to, and her usual happy-go lucky heart is about to take the beating of a lifetime. But Kit has never backed down from anything in her life and she’s not about to start now.

Time to find out what she’s really made of. Before the bad guys ruin everything.

Reviews

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Entertaining but… This is a hard review for me to do. In fact, it has been over a week that I have been warring with myself on whether to review it or not! I thought if I did do my review and mention the things that were bothering me, then maybe I could help others be prepared for the twists & turns that I did not see coming, nor did I EXPECT them! Had I been aware of it all, then maybe, no, FOR SURE I would have enjoyed this book further and it would have had a higher rating. First off, don’t be scared or turned off of this book without reading the rest of my review. Secondly, remember that this IS MY OPINION ONLY and DOES NOT reflect EVERYONE’S opinion! It is very well written, entertaining and funny…until it gets dark. It still is a great book but I also think it should be noted that this book does deal with bullying at a whole other level. The cover & blurb are a little deceptive as is the first half or so… Meaning that they match well together…until “That Part”…I know that I am more sensitive to this stuff, but I also know I am not the only one. Cyber, emotional, even physical bullying, date rape drug – which is not “explicitly” used for rape (there are a couple of the girls that I am thinking it did go that far, but it is not said or detailed, more implied which also means it is open to interpretation) it is used so that the bully can take blackmail pictures so that Bully can be in charge of them & further bully them, as well as forcing them to do anything that is desired…. I found that this book started off great with “Reality #1”, then switches to “Reality #2”. It takes a bit to get used to the switching back & forth but when I caught on to just exactly what was going on, I thought it was genius!!! I was a little amazed at just how quickly I got sucked into the story! I was equally surprised & shocked, if not more so, at just how rapidly this book shifted from a “fluffy” type of story to a deep dark mystery that I couldn’t put down! Until…it made me bawl and sick to my stomach that is! I wish that there was a disclaimer in the blurb to warn that there is bullying, the use of GHB, and that it is a darker subject dealt with, so if you are a sensitive reader, this may not be the book for you. I know for me, when I am warned about it, I am expecting it to be darker, disturbing or whatever the case may be, but then it doesn’t usually bother me as much. I have read a couple of books where the warning was NOT there and it shook me to my very core and I have not read anything by those authors again. On the flip side of that, I have also read books where the warning WAS there, and I was able to be prepared for it and “accept” it better, if that is the correct phrasing. I guess my point is that if I was given a heads up on the content of the story being darker, I think I would have actually been okay with it all and maybe even enjoyed the book more. All in all, if you are able to handle the content, then this is definitely a book you do not want to miss out on! It is very entertaining, well thought out, I loved how Kit ended up dealing with it and how things “ended”, but just be warned that the pink sparkly cover does not mean that everything is all pink & sparkly inside.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I like this chick (given a digital arc for honest review) As I said I like this chick. Girl Incredible Kit MacLean is my kinda gal. Probably the most relateable character I have ever read so far. I really enjoyed reading cannot wait for the next bad@@@ installment of Kit MacLean
