Andrea Portes, la autora best seller de La anatomía de una inadaptada y El otoño de las mariposas vuelve con otra irresistible heroína sarcástica en esta nueva novela.

¿Qué es un héroe? Paige Nolan lo sabe. Edward Raynes, el joven que expone las técnicas inconstitucionales de espionaje de América, es un héroe, incluso si la mitad del país piensa que es un traidor. O los padres de Paige, periodistas que fueron capturados por terroristas por contar las historias de los amenazados y oprimidos. Ellos también fueron héroes. Fueron... o son nadie le ha confirmado a Paige si están vivos o muertos.

¿Quiénes no son héroes? Cualquier persona en el gobierno que abandonó a sus padres, dejándoles pudrirse a medio camino en algún lugar del mundo. Y ciertamente no se trata de Paige, quien a pesar de hablar cinco idiomas con fluidez y dominar varias artes marciales (¡gracias mamá!) no hizo nada para salvarlos.
No pudo, es decir, hasta que conoció a Madden Carter, un agente operativo encubierto que le asigna una misión, viajar Rusia, encontrar Raynes y descubrir de qué otros secretos gubernamentales se ha apropiado. A cambio de lo cual, él reabrirá el caso de sus padres desaparecidos. Le da un seudónimo y una identidad encubierta como estudiante de intercambio. ¿Quién es un héroe? No Paige Nolan, pero quizás, sólo quizás, la libertad.

The bestselling author of Anatomy of Misfit and The Fall of Butterflies, Andrea Portes, is back with another irresistible snarky heroine in Liberty.

What is a hero? Paige Nolan knows. Edward Raynes, the young man who exposed America's unconstitutional spying techniques, is a hero, even if half the dum-dums in the country think he's a traitor. Or Paige's parents, journalists who were captured by terrorists while telling stories of the endangered and oppressed. They were heroes, too. Were... or are--no one has ever told Paige if they're still alive, or dead.

Not heroes? Anyone in the government who abandoned her parents, letting them rot somewhere halfway across the world. And certainly not Paige herself, who despite her fluency in five languages and mastery of several obscure martial arts (thanks, Mom!) could do nothing to save them.

Couldn't, that is, until she's approached by Madden Carter, an undercover operative who gives her a mission--fly to Russia, find Raynes, and discover what other government secrets he's stockpiled. In exchange, he'll reopen the case on her missing parents. She's given a code name and a cover as a foreign exchange student.

Who is a hero? Not Paige Nolan, but maybe, just maybe, Liberty is.

Review quote

The young operative navigates Russian secret agents and contacts in the mob with fast-paced action and biting wit--perhaps while falling in love in the process. A fun--and even funnier--thriller.---- Kirkus
