    Thrilling spy novel

    Loved Alexandra. What a complicated young girl and to have gone through so much and then realize it was all a lie. It took so many unexpected turns I was never sure were it was going. Just when I thought I had it figured out there the characters all took a different path. Very intriguing, couldn't put it down. Can’t wait for the sequel.

    Perfectly paced thriller,keeps you flipping pages.

    This book had me from the first page and all the way through. They Call Me Alexandra Gastone is a perfectly paced thriller to keep you flipping pages, it has an incredibly smart plot with twists you couldn't foresee. I loved reading this and can't wait for the sequel. The plot in this novel was incredibly smart. The whole book had me mindblown. I'm still sitting here, flabbergasted, thinking "did I read this?" and "I loved reading this, give me more!" Its about this girl, Milena, who is working as a spy for a small country, Olissa. as a spy she steals the identity of Alexandra Gastone, who died in a not-so-accidental car accident. Milena/Alexandra has a far fetched yet believable story I fell into. The characters in this piece of work were amazing. I connected with pretty much everyone. We have Alexandra/Milena who is a badass character who is the voice of this story. She has a personality that conflicts with her job (emotions and opinions), which is great, she is a smart character with an incredibly interesting story. We have Alexandra's guardian, Albert, who conveniently is the grandfather who is part of CIA. Albert has quite the passionate spirit which makes him the best parent. He has playful times with Alexandra including book club, and trips around the world. I wish Albert couldve been my grandpa. There was also Grant, son of a CIA member who is also Alexandra's boyfriend. Their relationship is amazing and incredibly shippable. Grant is a cute nerd I would date. I was happy the plot didn't go around their relationship. Lets not forget about the other operatives, who were like a second family to Milena/Alexandra, from the little we have heard, they sound like a pretty fun group, each unique and admirable. You can definitely tell T.A. Maclagan did her research and spent her time with this amazing debut. The plot has the smarts. The write has been done so well. T.A. Maclagan has perfectly captured the voice of Milena/Alexandra. The characters were so deep and I could connect with ALL of them. Even the naughty naughty ones. The background story was so interesting. It all left me in awe and I definitely recommend this for any YA lovers, especially to fans of Ally Carter and any other espionage novels. I have nothing else to say but I need the second book, and you need to read this debut!

    Crackling young adult spy novel

    A crackling spy novel that crosses the best of y/a with the glamour of SALT and Bourne. I truly loved this book. So entertaining - a super fast, smart read. I hope there is sequel - soon!

    "On-your-seat suspense"

    Hard to believe someone so young could endure as much as Alexandra did. Jest when I thought I'd guessed her next move, surprise after surprise, until the very end. Loved it and looking forward to the next one.

    Not Your Typical Spy Novel

    Oh man, I LOVED this. It's so different from a lot of YA spy novels out there. It's a bit darker. You get more into the protagonists head. Lex's life is so complicated and it's really fun joining her as she navigates through it. Tons of twists and turns in this one and good Lord, the ending killed me. I loved it.
