The Secret Life of Kitty Granger

We rated this book:


Kitty Granger has a secret life even before she becomes an undercover agent. Set in 1967, this historical fiction has many echoes of current politics both in the UK and the US. Kitty is a 16-year-old girl who lives with her father in London’s East End. And she’s a little bit autistic. After her mother’s death, Kitty works in her father’s grocery store. Kitty loves puzzles, and she has a good memory for numbers and faces. She is very sensitive to patterns, which is why one day on a bus, she notices something strange about two of the other passengers during the ride. Kitty decides to investigate – just to satisfy her curiosity – and her noticing little things out of place nearly get her killed by a crime ring. Nonetheless, Kitty’s unusual talents are noticed in turn by a secret undercover organization that answers to the prime minister. Any teenager might envy Kitty’s chance to do something more exciting and important than she ever dreamed. It’s a far cry from stocking the grocery shelves. Women aren’t just sidekicks in this spy novel – Kitty and her friends Verity and the glamorous Mrs Singh are the heroines saving Britain! Of course Kitty is brave and resourceful, but the action has you rushing to finish the book. It’s that exciting!
