The Year of Secret Assignments
Synopses & Reviews
Three girls. Three boys. Two rival schools.
This could get messy.
The Ashbury-Brookfield pen pal program is designed to bring together the two rival schools in a spirit of harmony and "the Joy of the Envelope." But when Cassie, Lydia, and Emily send their first letters to Matthew, Charlie, and Sebastian, things don't go quite as planned. What starts out as a simple letter exchange soon leads to secret missions, false alarms, lock picking, mistaken identities, and an all-out war between the schools--not to mention some really excellent kissing.
"'Once again, Moriarty uses an epistolary format to bring to life the voices of contemporary teens in an Australian private school,' said PW, of this tale that contains elements of mystery, romance and revenge. Ages 12-up." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)
