Summary

Summary

Fighter, Faker, Student, Spy.

Seventeen-year-old Reagan Elizabeth Hillis is used to changing identities overnight, lying to every friend she's ever had, and pushing away anyone who gets too close. Trained in mortal combat and weaponry her entire life, Reagan is expected to follow in her parents' footsteps and join the ranks of the most powerful top-secret agency in the world, the Black Angels. Falling in love with the boy next door was never part of the plan.

Now Reagan must decide: Will she use her incredible talents and lead the dangerous life she was born into, or throw it all away to follow her heart and embrace the normal life she's always wanted? And does she even have a choice?

Find out if you are ready to join the Black Angels in the captivating and emotional page-turner, You Don't Know My Name, from debut novelist Kristen Orlando!

Praise for You Don't Know My Name :

"This is my ideal sort of book, full of tension, action, romance, family issues, and a girl struggling to figure out her identity. Kristen Orlando has created a kickass character --literally!--I was won over instantly. I can't wait for the sequel!" --Sara Shepard, #1 New York Times Best Selling author of The Pretty Little Liars series

"Debut author Orlando strikes a fast-paced, flirty, and mostly believable balance between timely teenage conflicts (crippling anxiety, fruitless study sessions, humiliating house parties) and pure peril. This one's a page-turner , and the unexpectedly catastrophic conclusion--and lingering promise of sweet revenge--suggests Orlando, much like Reagan, is just getting started." -- Booklist

" At its core, it is an action-packed novel about searching for oneself in the midst of heavy expectations. The violence is plot-advancing rather than gratuitous, while the main character is a strategizing, brave teen who is attempting to find her way both in the moment and into her own future. A solid addition to high school collections, especially those with patrons who love stories of spy craft and secret identities , with a splash of romance " -- School Library Journal

"This action-packed suspense novel is the first in a new series that features a kick-ass female pro tagonist whose training regimen and smoldering love interest rival that of Divergent 's Tris Prior." -- Bookpage

"If you are a fan of Ally Carter's Gallager Girls or Heist Society , You Don't Know My Name needs to be on your radar. The protagonist is a strong, likable character and the romance that develops is sweet. Then there is the heart-stopping action and the suspenseful and explosive ending . " --Romantic Times Book Review
