Review: The Year of Secret Assignments

The Year of Secret Assignments
Jaclyn Moriarty
Ashbury/Brookfeild #2

The Ashbury-Brookfield pen pal program is designed to bring together the two rival schools in a spirit of harmony. But what starts out as a simple letter exchange between three boys and three girls soon leads to secret missions, mistaken identities, and an all-out war between the schools.
(Summary from Goodreads)

Rating: 4/5

What I Liked:
~ The fact that this book was written in letters, notes, emails, and other writings, made it really interesting to read. And because it is written in so many forms, it is told through many point of views, so you got to read the stories of each character and see how they all come together.
~ All of the characters were super likable, well except for one, but that's beside the point. Most of the characters were super likableEspecially, Sebastian. 

What I Didn't Like:
~ The majority of the book was great but the last couple chapters threw me off. But the ending was okay.

~The cover is nice and simple and makes much more since once you read the book.

In All:
~ This is a cute, fun, and enjoyable read that you should definitely pick up sometime.

Have you read this book? If so, what did you think?


  1. I'm glad you quite liked it! Sebastian! <3 I agree I really like with the different format and except for that one character I loved them all. But I thought the ending was quite perfect. ^^

  2. This sounds like such an interesting concept for a book. The only thing that kinda makes me want to take a step back is that it's written in letters, notes, etc. I've been under the impression that I don't like that format, but I guess I also haven't tried it in awhile, but since you said it was one of your favorite things, maybe I'll give it a shot.
