The Agency: A Spy in the House by Y.S. Lee

While I am not even finished reading this book, I feel I MUST share it immediately!  Warning:  The Agency is one of those books which once started will be impossible to put down.  Do not open the front cover when there is a room to be cleaned, homework to be completed, or soccer practice to be attended.  Mary Lang/Quinn is a thief sentenced to be hanged.  She is rescued by a Spy Agency and immediately put to work.  Her first assignment is rather boring, however, it is guaranteed that Mary will make it exciting.  This book is already full of action and suspense, and I love the strong female protagonist.
