Description
A Latina teen spy goes undercover as a white girl to stop a white supremacist terrorist plot in a fast-paced middle-grade debut from a seasoned author of contemporary crime fiction. In her debut for younger readers, Aya de Leon pits a teen spy against the ominous workings of a white nationalist. Fourteen-year-old Andrea Hernández-Baldoquin hails from a family of spies working for the Factory, an international organization dedicated to protecting people of color. For her first solo mission, Andrea straightens her hair and goes undercover as Andrea Burke, a white girl, to befriend the estranged son of a dangerous white supremacist. In addition to her Factory training, the assignment calls for a deep dive into the son's interests-comic books and gaming-all while taking care not to speak Spanish and blow her family's cover. But it's hard to hide who you really are, especially when you develop a crush on your target's Latino best friend. Can Andrea keep her head, her geek cred, and her code-switching on track to trap a terrorist? S
