The Agent's Daughter
Title: The Agent's Daughter
Author: Ron Corriveau
Publisher: Geek Parade Books
Date of Publication: May 18, 2013

Melina has been preparing for a future career as a spy.

She just doesn’t know it.

Legendary spy Evan Roberts always knew that his fifteen-year-old daughter Melina also possessed the absolute lack of fear required of an agent. Without telling her his real profession or his intention, he began to guide her toward an eventual career as a spy. However, Melina’s world is shattered after her mom is involved in an accident that leaves her mysteriously unhurt but unresponsive. Her father’s plans on hold, Melina settles into life at a suburban high school, immersing herself in a world of schoolwork, her friends and a budding romance with Alex, the cute new guy in her class.

When Melina and her father uncover shocking new information about her mother’s accident, Melina is pulled deep into her father’s shadowy world. With Alex desperately trying to find her and only hours to go before it will be too late to save her mother, Melina and her father work together using their combined skills to find a way to reach her.

Review

My Rating: 2 out of 5 stars

Thank you to Giselle of Xpresso Book Tours and Ron Corriveau for the electronic review copy. This in no way affected my views of the novel.

This review has been sitting for so long in my drafts and I should just let it go. I can't exactly remember much about this book except for the fact that I hated how the author told the story. The storytelling was pure tell and no show. It felt like the author was treating its reader as if he's stupid because everything is fed to you.

I remember skipping a lot on this book because I just want it to end. I couldn't stand the writing. However, I still finished it and the plot was okay, I just couldn't deal with the writing.

I think the novel can work with other people so I won't really make you go away from this book.
