Brief Book Review: Also Known As

Also Known AsAlso Known As by Robin Benway
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

If Goodreads allowed half stars, I would give this a 3.5.  Maggie comes from a family of spies, and at sixteen she is on her first solo assignment -- to befriend a boy at a posh Manhattan high school and make sure his father doesn't blow their cover. There's more relationship drama than actually spying, but it's a fun, light read fans of the Gallagher Girls.

*I received an e-galley from the publisher through NetGalley for an honest review.

March of Dimes March for Babies

I decided to do the March of Dimes March for  Babies this year out of gratitude for all the research they've done over the years that benefitted Ben and ensured a good outcome for my little preemie.  If you'd like to join -- donate or walk with me -- check out my fundraising page.

Here's Ben a year ago:
And here he is now! :
