Special Covert Operation Assignment: Review

Operation Description: Write a review for this book that made you laughed like crazy in the middle of the night.

Warning: May contain inappropriate words for young children.

Synopsis: Three Girls, Three Boys, Two Rival schools. This could get Messy.
The Ashbury-Brookfield pen pal program is desinged to bring together two rival schools in a spirit of harmony and the 'Joy of envelope'. But when Cassie, Lydia and Emiy send their first letters to Matthew, Charlie an 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. 

Field Notes: Funny, humorous, comical, amusing, facetious, ORIGINAL. This book had me choking on my barf because I was laughing too hard. (kidding!) Cassie, Lydia and Emily are kick ass funny characters, I never cried so much from laughing because of what they said, and they had Charlie, Sebastian and Matthew under their hook. 

Quote: Favourite Quote: Boy's quote: 
Eat shit and die, you private school slag.
Yours faithfully,

You talk a pile of crap X 28 
Yours Faitfully,
Emily Thompson

Field Notes #2: Try this, go 'awwwwwwwwwwwwwww' for the romance and 'you go girl!' for their friendship and 'Oh NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!' in a heartbreaking scene. This is 1960s all over again! Girl and boys who fall in love being pen pals! And I am so touched by the way Cassie, Emily and Lydia looked out for each other. Including coming up with the whole idea of : The Secret Assignment (which is so fifth grade but still.....)

Field Notes #3: I'm a shark, I don't swim in shallow waters. DEEP. DEEP. DEEP. Got it?
*sigh* Translation :  This book is not a shallow, bratty, cliche story. it's sad, it's touching, it's REAL.

Field Notes #4 : I'm starting to get a hang of this, stop me before I write something more! Okay okay, last one. HUGE PRAISES FOR JACYLN MORIARTY FOR HER FUNNY/ENTERTAININ/WITTY SENSE OF HUMOUR AND WRITING THAT REMINDED ME OF THE JOY OF WRITING LETTERS. (just had to get put that in capitals)

P.S: Do not read it when everyone is asleep because your laughter might freak your little brother sleeping next door. 

P.P.S : Do not read it when your stomach feels WEIRD. Personal experience. 

P.P.P.S : Make notes. For pranking reasons. 

P.P.P.P.S : This review is of my personal opinion, so if you hate the book, don't mind my rambling. P.S I rated it 5 stars.
