Simone LaFray is one of the best new book series I have read in a long time. S. P. O'Farrell has created a relatable character in Simone as she struggles through adolescence and starts making her own descisions and keeping her own secrets. Simone realizes that friends are worth keeping and owns up to her mistakes. Simone proves to us all that failure is a great teacher. I would recommend this book to anyone ages 10-14. There's action, adventure, secrets and suspense. I read this in one sitting!
