I really enjoyed this novel written by Jaclyn Moriarty. This book is about 3 girls writting to there pen pals at a crimnal school. At first it's just kind words but then it starts to be assignments like breaking locks and false alarms. This book is really exciting and hard to put down after you've started. The author uses very desriptive words, which in my opinion makes the book much better. The Year of Secret Assignments is a great book that teens of all ages wil enjoy.
