Surfer Girl Kindle µ Kindle Edition

Surfer Girl This is a fast paced fun spy novel that moves uickly and never lingers too long in one area The characters are diverse and interesting and you can tell that delving further into their personalities and back stories is going to be the driving force behind both this book and the rest of the seriesUnfortunately the rapid fire nature of the action while keeping things interesting occasionally comes across as rushed and incomplete At times not enough attention to detail makes it difficult to fully envision the seuence of events taking place There are a large number of key characters most of whom use at least 2 aliases but only very brief introductions making it hard to uickly understand who is doing what and why I also felt a bit too much time was spent on the virtual gaming method the unit uses to communicate time that could have been better spent developing the charactersHowever the concept is good the characters are interesting and you can see that the author has a clear vision of where she wants to take the series I would recommend it for fans of high speed spy action and look forward to seeing where it goes from here Did Not Finish Surfer Girl is an action book basically within the spy genre with an interesting angle the main character is not a male spy but rather a fit smart college girl with a board surfing skill Her talent brings her to the attention of CIA recruiters for an outfit called the Misfits specializing in the round up of the enemy's James Bond ish toys in this case a hovercraft The agents press Arena into service and a large part of the book is about her training Though at the beginning the setup seems a bit implausible I doubt CIA operatives are in fact recruited this way all seems to fall into place as the plot puts Arena under increasing pressure The software games used in training are ingenious a missing roommate turns up again and so forth I am charmed by the author's description of how she was pursued by her characters after literally dreaming up the story I must also say I'm not the target audience for this novel as my reading taste runs to Thackeray Dickens and Austen However I read Lynn's short book with pleasure I think it has a lot going for it In terms of meeting the expectation set up by its author a good afternoon read by the pool it earns four stars from this reviewer for accomplishing what it sets out to do I like the way the plot marches forward driven by action verbs The description while sparse is adroit The characters are not so distinctively drawn as they might be a bit idiosyncrasy might be in order But they are likeable and their dialogue which dominates the book sounds authentic I'm interested to see how they emerge in the next book in the series I might add the book is well edited that this eagle eyed English professor detected very little to fuss over Overall Surfer Girl is a fast paced enjoyable read a good choice for fans of action novels Surfer Girl is a story of how an amateur surfer became a member of a CIA team tagged the “Misfits” She accidentally demonstrated her capability to operate a novel piece of technology the hover board and became involved in the world of espionage and decamping agentsThe book handled her training and assimilation into the group well and for an action novel the science aspect of the story was uite plausible with the author inferring that the energy supply of the board was probably valuable that the hover board itself and presenting it as the reason for why so many people wanted it So what is wrong with the book? It starts weakly with one page chapters having minimal plot development Despite starting off this way I grew to like it The book developed depth the further I read and somewhere in the middle it shaped up to an interesting tale of subterfugeHaving witness the growth of the author in this book I look forward to reading the next one in the series Surfer Girl is a fun spy story set in California as Arena a college student is dragged away from her studies to join a CIA team named The Misfits The story is fast paced and it's clear the author had fun writing about Arena and her collaborators Without giving away too much of the plot a mysterious group has stolen some hover boards invented by some college geeks and is using them for nefarious purposes Lyn Blackmar has done a terrific job of building suspense and writing a strong and capable female protagonist Loved the action the team and the teamwork The hoverboards are awesome cool and I want one What I like most of all in this story is how they didn't let circumstances red tape jerks etc stop them from doing good Making things work regardless of the situation That's so coolArena her middle name is beautiful Hawaiian Noelani is a great character She's smart compassionate and very brave I think my favorite male character is Sterling I think all of the Misfits which they embrace and carry the nickname with honor are cool Like Sterling said It works because of the people in it#2 Rebel is available and #3 Catalyst was supposed to be released in 2014 Haven't been able to find it The game in the book isn't my kind of thing so I was glad there wasn't of that I prefer HeR Interactive's Nancy Drew games and Hardy Boys gamesIf you like action adventure spies intrigue and good people doing what they can to make the world a safer better place then you want to read this book This book was so awesome This is the kind of book that I obsess about Arena is a very bright character and was able to just hop onto the CIA scene out of nowhere I really want to read the next book and am trying to calm myself down from reading this book Surfer Girl was funny and so fast paced Everywhere Arena went there was some sort of obstacle I also found it funny that the other characters kept hinting at Arena and Stirling Amazingness A fun read Looking forward to of the series Alternate cover edition for ASIN B008L0G9O2 College student Arena Schmidt never wanted to be a secret agent She interferes in a priority mission and steals a coveted technology but is caught and imprisoned Threatened with permanent menial employment unless she joins the CIA she surrenders herself to the life of spyAssigned to a geeky unit of CIA spies known as The Misfits she struggles to recover the technology Each Misfit offers a uniue perspective and unconventional methods from martial arts master Nate to enigmatic analyst Sterling to bubbly enthusiastic Lorna Slowly the Misfits win her over with their charm and their loyaltySinister organizations move against the CIA to capture than just the technology fragmenting the Misfits and shattering their resolve Arena finds herself in the middle of gunfights and high speed chases on the run from the organization's treacherous double agent out to claim her and the technology for their own I really enjoyed this action packed teen spyCIA novel
