What a great list! I always love spy books. My list is at but needs updated. I enjoyed Monaghan's A Girl Named Digit and Benway's Also Known As, too!

This needs updating too - it's just a copy of an old list I had. It's the last RA RA READ I had ready - I'm going to start making new lists and updating the ones I've already posted now.
