Publisher's Summary

Sophie Young and Grace Yang: best friends, seventh graders, spies.

Equipped with walkie-talkies, binoculars, and candy, the girls sneak out for one of their midnight spy missions expecting a simple stakeout. But what starts as a silly game turns very real when they peek in on Luna Vista's notoriously bizarre middle-school counselor, Dr. Charlotte Agford (aka Dr. Awkward).

Is there more to Dr. Agford than her tacky clothes and sugary falsetto voice? Sophie and Grace are convinced something sinister lurks below the surface... and they just might be right. Soon they're racing to outsmart the suspicious counselor - all while cracking secret codes, dodging a mysterious blue car, and keeping tabs on strangers with unibrows and Texas twangs.

But the strain of the investigation pushes the girls further apart. Even if Sophie and Grace uncover the truth about Agford in time, will their friendship survive?

    "Cute but not great"

    If a light and cute kids mystery is what you're looking for, then this is perfect. My 12 year old and I read it together, she disliked the book entirely. I appreciated what it was, but wouldn't recommend it to anyone that enjoys good literature. The performance was good, but the voices for some characters were annoyingly contrived.

    "Ineffective Characters"

    The narrator for this book isn't very good. She does do one voice extremely well, that of Agford. But the two main characters, Grace and Sophie, are indistinguishable. Also, the character of Trista and every male in the book sound the same.

    Overall, I found the main characters tedious due to all of their jumps to conclusions, which happened constantly. Besides being rather dull, the two main characters really only affect the main plot and the unraveling of the mystery accidentally. They snoop around, they find some stuff, and despite spending hours googling, they don't research very thoroughly and miss key details.

    The worst is that the main character, Sophie, the daughter of two rocket scientists, believes in feng shui and keeps quoting Sun Tzu. The Sun Tzu quotes would have been great if they weren't so overly abundant, but all the feng shui nonsense was just stupid.
