THE AGENCY: A SPY IN THE HOUSE by Y.S. Lee: A Series Recommendation for Teens

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

A mystery thriller set in Victorian London with a spunky and clever young woman as protagonist?  Yes, please!  The Agency series is a terrific read, recommended for grades 7 and up (including those YA lovers like us at Lit for Kids).  Heroine Mary Quinn is an orphan (and thief, of necessity), who is rescued from the gallows by a dedicated group of women at Miss Scrimshaw’s Academy for Girls, the cover for an all-female investigative unit called the Agency. In the premier book in the series, Mary begins her career as an undercover agent disguised as a lady’s companion.  She carries out her investigation at night and during stolen moments, but soon finds that she is not the only one on the case. Is James Easton a friend or foe?  The book is fast-paced and gripping; I enjoyed the chance to immerse myself in this world.  And the best news is that there are several more books in the series.  I’m on the third, and I’m grateful to see there are at least 2 more to date!  Put this series on your summer reading list!
