“A wholly original tale of friendship and betrayal through the eyes – and lies – of one extraordinary girl.
Sasha has a secret – that she can make you spill your secret with nothing more than a question. Her strange gift makes her a burden to her foster family and a total freak of nature. Not that Sasha cares. Why should she when no one cares about her?
Then the CIA knocks on her door. They want to give Sasha a new identity and drop her into a foreign country to infiltrate a ring of zealous graffiti terrorists. They want to give Sasha something to care about.
To survive a world where no one is who they seem, Sasha needs to make people trust her. But when that trust blossoms into love, Sasha is forced to decide between duty and friendship, between her mind and her heart, and whether to tell the truth or keep her secrets.”

I’d like to thank NetGalley and Gray Life, LLC for providing me with a free copy in exchange for an honest review.
This was an okay read. While it didn’t make me feel outright bored, I found myself glancing at the bottom of my Kindle’s screen to see how long I still had to go. It was very promising, but, for some reason, it just didn’t deliver.
Sasha, the main character, didn’t really strike a chord with me. She is not someone I’d want to be friends with. The plot also felt a bit confusing at times. Maybe it was my sleep deprivation speaking, but I couldn’t really get why it was so important for a ring of graphiti terrorists to be dismantled. I mean, I’d say that the CIA has biggest cases that could benefit from a girl that makes people spill their secrets with her voice.
