Horn Book Review

When nonconformist Annie moves to Natalie's neighborhood, the two become friends (to the chagrin of Natalie's parents) and start a secret spying club. Annie has a tendency to tell outrageous stories about her past that, to Natalie, sound like lies. Watson creates distinctive main characters who grow to understand themselves and each other better throughout the course of this engaging summertime story. (c) Copyright 2010.
