Liberty: The Spy Who (Kind Of) Liked Me

Author: Andrea Porter 

Publisher: HarperTeen 
Release Date: June 6, 2017


Andrea Portes is back with a fast-paced, super-fun spy novel, told in her signature snarky, voice-driven style.

What is a hero? Paige Nolan knows.

Edward Raynes, the young man who exposed America’s unconstitutional spying techniques, is a hero, even if half the dum-dums in the country think he’s a traitor. Or her parents, journalists who were captured by terrorists while telling stories of the endangered and oppressed. They were heroes, too. Were. . . or are—no one has ever told Paige if they’re still alive, or dead.

Not heroes? Anyone in the government who abandoned her parents, letting them rot somewhere halfway across the world. And certainly not Paige herself, who despite her fluency in five languages and mastery of several obscure martial arts (thanks, Mom!) could do nothing to save them.

Couldn’t, that is, until she’s approached by Madden Carter, an undercover operative who gives her a mission—fly to Russia, find Raynes, and discover what other government secrets he’s stockpiled. In exchange, he’ll reopen the case on her missing parents. She’s given a code name and a cover as a foreign exchange student.

Who is a hero? Not Paige Nolan, but maybe, just maybe, Liberty is.

Why I'm Excited: Spies! I don't know why I love them so much--I just do. I haven't read anything by this author, but I love fast-paced, snarky novels so I'll definitely be keeping my eyes out for this one.  

What are you waiting for on this Wednesday? Link me up!


  1. This is so cool! The snark, the undercover mission? All sound amazingly good! I like Paige, I think she sounds very relatable!

    1. And no romance mentioned I just realised. I like that, I really do. Seems like a wonderful focus on Paige trying to find herself.

  2. I am really behind on publications for this year, because I didn't know about this one! Usually I like to keep myself updated with catalogs, especially Harper's... ooops? This one sounds really intense. I will definitely look it up. I hope you enjoy this book when you get the chance to read it!

    Have a fabulous week. =)

    Check out my WoW post!


Hello, there! Thanks for taking the time to comment. I read each and every one and will do my best to respond--usually on your blog instead of on mine. I will, however, always answer direct questions. Due to serious time restraints, this blog is now an award free zone, but I appreciate the thought!
