Summary (from Goodreads): 
Being a 16-year-old safecracker and active-duty daughter of international spies has its moments, good and bad. Pros: Seeing the world one crime-solving adventure at a time. Having parents with super cool jobs. Cons: Never staying in one place long enough to have friends or a boyfriend. But for Maggie Silver, the biggest perk of all has been avoiding high school and the accompanying cliques, bad lunches, and frustratingly simple locker combinations. Then Maggie and her parents are sent to New York for her first solo assignment, and all of that changes. She'll need to attend a private school, avoid the temptation to hack the school's security system, and befriend one aggravatingly cute Jesse Oliver to gain the essential information she needs to crack the case . . . all while trying not to blow her cover.

I literally stumbled across Robin Benway's upcoming novel, Also Known As, only yesterday and as soon as I read the book description, I instantly added it to my must-read list and just had to feature it as my WoW pick this week! A teenage safecracker with spies as parents and who's now about to set out on her own solo assignment? It sounds so awesome and fun! I need this book. Like. Right. Now.
