Waiting on Wednesday: Going Rogue by Robin Benway



Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.


This week I'm waiting on:


Going Rogue: An AKA Novel
by Robin Benway
To be published in January 2014
by Walker Children's Books



Okay, this is not the real cover, so don't get worried. Here's the (real) synopsis…

Being permanently based in a local New York City high school as an undercover operative has its moments, good and bad, for 16-year-old safecracker Maggie Silver. Pros: More quality time with her former mark-turned-boyfriend Jesse Oliver and insanely cool best friend, Roux. Getting to spend quality time with her semi-retired and international spy honorary uncle, Angelo. Cons: High school and the accompanying cliques, bad lunches, and frustratingly simple locker combinations. But when Maggie's parents are falsely accused of stealing priceless gold coins, Maggie uses her safecracking skills to try and clear their names. Too bad it only serves to bring the wrath of the now corrupt Collective down on all of them. Can Maggie and her "new team" defeat their former allies?

I really liked Also Known As -- you can read my review here -- so I'm excited to see what Maggie and the gang are up to next!

What book are you impatiently waiting for? Let me know in comments or leave me a link so I can check it out!

  1. OMG I had no idea that a)Robin had a new book coming out and b) that it was a sequel to AKA!! Thank you for blogging about this- I've added it to my GR shelf and will be hunting Netgalley for whenever they put up the e-galley, lol.

  2. For a second I thought isn't this out already, but I had no idea that AKA was a part of a series. I love spy stories, so this going directly in my tbr. Great pick!

      But NOT the real cover, just my amateur re-do of the AKA cover since the new one doesn't have a cover yet...

  11. I haven't read the first book but it IS on my wish list (and trust me, my wish list only contains like 15 books ATM). I am hoping to read it before the next one comes out!

  13. YES YES YES YES YES!!!!! I was hoping there would be a second book. Let me say again: YES!!!!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  14. What?? That's not the real cover? Oh, I see. Did you make that based on the last one? Interesting, I'd never heard of the Also Known As series before. Sounds like a lot of fun - I'm a fan of Ally Carter's Heist Society, and it looks like this is right up its alley.

    1. Yeah, I just didn't want to use the Goodreads no-cover cover. So I modified the original...

  15. I feel so behind.... I haven't even read AKA yet!

    ReplyDelete
  16. At first I thought the cover looked awfully familiar... lol But then I read underneath it. I still need to read the first book but both sound like great fun! :)

  17. Yay-there's going to be a sequel! I hoped but wasn't sure. Hope the cover will match the original in a cute way :)
