4.0 étoiles sur 5 A Hilarious Follow-up to A Wonderful Book 15 janvier 2014
Par Julie A. Herzog - Publié sur
I'm a big fan of Robin Benway, and when I heard that she was releasing a sequel to Also Known As, I was ecstatic. AKA was the first book I read by Robin, and I was immediately drawn in by her sarcasm and wit, as well as her realistic portrayal of what it's like to be a teenager (the emotions, not the international espionage). Going Rogue followed in the same vein. The colorful cast of characters ensured that I'd be laughing throughout the entire book. But Maggie's internal struggle between doing what she feels is right and doing what her parents want her to is emotionally gripping, and her fights with Jesse are downright heartbreaking.

The plot of the book is also very intriguing. The Collective, the spy organization that Maggie and her parents work for, has started corrupting from the inside out, and Maggie's family gets caught up in the mess. Maggie decides to go rogue and clear their names, and gets in all sorts of trouble along the way. The book was definitely exciting, but in a slightly different way from the first book. In Going Rogue, the danger feels realer and more present, and it kept me glued to the book until I was done.

All in all, Going Rogue is a fantastic book. Robin writes YA like it's what she was born to do. I don't think this book is better than Also Known As, but it's definitely just as good.

Robin Benway is the master of writing smart, thoughtful books that you don’t even realize are smart or thoughtful because you’re having so much fun reading them. It’s been well established that I loved Also Known As, 50% because it’s a great book and 50% because the main character’s name is Maggie and I’m happy to say that I loved Going Rogue just as much, if not more, then I loved Also Known As.

Because I didn’t think Also Known As needed a sequel I was slightly worried going into this, but I should have just trusted Robin. In this second book in the series The Collective has gone off script and Maggie, her parents, and Angelo must go rogue. Maggie must also break out from under her parents’ careful watch and start to take on missions of her own and unfortunately Roux and Jesse get dragged into all of the craziness that ensues.

In my review of Also Known As I wrote: “Do I think a 16-year-old could really be a safecracker working with some of the top spies in the world? No. Do I think this book had a lot of absurd things happen? Absolutely. Did it matter? No.” And I still feel the exact same way. Reading about a 17-year-old breaking into a criminal mastermind’s home just doesn’t seem real to me, but the story is so fun and the characters are so great that it just doesn’t matter.

Let’s get to where I think Robin Benway really excels and that’s at blending the serious with the fun. Everything about this book is fun. Even when Maggie is in tough situations she’s still her smart, sarcastic self and that makes reading these books such a joy. But there’s also a lot of seriousness and relatable situations hidden among all the good times. When this book starts Maggie and Jesse have been dating for a little over a year and while things seemed to mostly have been good, as Maggie gets drawn back into the spy world things get tough for them. Maggie must keep secrets from Jesse and Jesse, even though he doesn’t know exactly what’s going on, is worried for Maggie’s safety and wants to protect her (in the least misogynistic way possible). Essentially these problems are variations of problems lots of people face in relationships; sometimes you have to keep secrets from those you love and sometimes you have to let people take risks and live their lives even when you want to protect them.

The same can be said for Maggie’s relationship with her parents. I absolutely love the parent-kid dynamic that they have in both books, but in this book Maggie needs to strike out on her own and put some space between herself and her parents. Not only because she’s entering her senior year of high school and getting ready to leave for college, but also because she’s working with Angelo as part of their “going rogue” on things her parents can’t know about. Even though the mission with Angelo is such a crazy thing it really struck me how Maggie’s need to assert her own independence and live her own life is just like what so many other teenagers go through.

After the perfect blend of fun and serious my favorite part of this book was obviously Angelo and Roux. So often I can’t stand supporting characters and best friends, but Angelo and Roux are something special. I loved that we got to see more of Angelo in this book and more of Angelo at work. And Roux is just amazing, I don’t think she was quite as wacky in this book, but she has some amazing moments. I mean, who else would have a Faberge egg hidden in their sock drawer?

Bottom Line: This book is so perfect for so many people. If you like fun, read this book. If you like contemporary YA novels, read this book. If you like spies, read this book. Robin Benway’s books are something truly special and if you haven’t had the pleasure of reading one of her books yet I encourage you go fix that mistake ASAP.

I received an electronic review copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley (thank you!). All opinions are my own.

I was so excited for this book. When I found out there was going to be a second book, I may have smiled liked an idiot. Also Known As was one of those few books that had me laughing or smiling most of the book. There's so much humor mixed in with everything else that a book has. When an author can be as witty as Robin Benway, it's a definite plus in my book. So when I had the opportunity to snag Going Rogue, I didn't waste a second. Was this book everything I wanted it to be? Yes. Was it better than Also Known As? No. That doesn't mean it was bad, though. Hear me out . . .

While this book was exciting, filled with tons of drama, action and suspense, not to mention a ton of humor it just wasn't as exciting as the first book. I think that's because with the first book, I didn't know what to expect and pleasantly surprised while the second book, I already know the characters, know all about Maggie's secret identity, if you will, and her lifestyle. So, even though the book may not have been as exciting as the first one, it was still a fantastic read. One that you actually don't have to read the first book but I definitely think you'll be missing out if you don't.

Roux is still as witty as she was in the first book. She's such a blunt character. She says what she feels and that's that. I'm kind of envious of her, actually; I always wished I were bolder so I could just give a few people my opinions. She's had a rough few years (hell, she's had a rough life, really) with the people at school being so cruel to her and her parents are never around. She is basically living on her own with no friends except for Maggie and Jesse. Everyone knows, as a teenager, friends are very important in finding out who you are as that's one big thing about your teenage years, finding yourself. Or at least, I believe this. So the fact that Roux is as awesome of a person and as great of a friend as she is, even with everything that's gone on while growing up, is amazing. She's the type of person I'd want having my back and being my best friend so Maggie is very lucky to have her.

Angelo is still probably one of my favorite people in this book. He's so sophisticated, brilliant and loving. He has a heart as big as the world and he's not afraid to show it but he's also someone you don't want to have as an enemy. He plays such a vital role in this book, not that he didn't in the first one but he's just so damn important in this. All he wants to do is protect his family and he'll do whatever he can to make sure they're all safe.

The relationship between Jesse and Maggie is very up and down. They love each other, this is very clear but how can a relationship work when you're dating a spy? It's very strained because there's so many things Maggie can't tell Jesse and Jesse feels helpless because he can't protect the thing he loves most. They actually have this huge fight that just totally made me a puddle of mush. It was so emotional reading it, I actually felt like I was a part of the fight and the hurt that followed their fight. When an author can make you feel that strongly during a scene, they are certainly doing it right.

This book is a little different because it's Maggie doing work not for Collective but she's doing a job to protect her parents, who are now being investigated by the Collective. What she didn't realize, taking this job, was how dangerous it would be for her but also for her parents, Angelo, Jesse and Roux. However, dangerous means you're on to something, right? It means, you're getting warmer at getting to the bottom of what's causing the problem but is it really worth the risk of everyone's lives? When things go awry, they are forced to split up and flee to Paris where she has to trust Angelo's plan. A plan she knows nothing about. I definitely feel like the best part of this book came once they had to flee. We meet some very interesting & fun characters and we get to see a new side of Roux, one I really like!

Like I said earlier, you don't have to read Also Known As to read this but I recommend you do. If you're looking for something light, easy and fun then these books are definitely for you. I can guarantee you'll have a few laughs with a smile on your face most of the time.

Going Rogue was a delightful follow-up to Also Known As, filled with more adventure and romance than the first book. Whereas Also Known As was a mostly fun and light read with just a dash of danger thrown in towards the end, Going Rogue definitely read as a slightly more mature, dangerous story that still retained the original heart of this series.

And oh, how these characters are wonderful! There’s a new villain who plays a far more dangerous game than the first, which really took Going Rogue to the next level. While I enjoyed Maggie’s spying activity in Also Known As, I was never quite convinced she was as good of a spy as she was supposed to be for her age. Going Rogue convinced me. There was at least double the amount of spy action in this book, and Maggie totally proved her worth and her ability to do a job. Roux was as charming as ever, but also gained quite a bit of depth. By the end of the book, I felt I really got her character in a way I hadn’t before.

One thing that was really wonderful about Going Rogue was getting to see Maggie and Jesse Oliver(Who I will never be able to refer to in another way) behave as a real couple, without Maggie’s secret hanging over their head. Okay, there are still some secrets involved, but at least Jesse Oliver isn’t Maggie’s mission anymore. My heart broke for them at times because when this book took a turn for the more serious, it definitely effected this relationship. However, in the end I was pleased with the way Benway handled the romance. And there’s a scene that takes place in Paris that is quite possibly the most adorable scene I have ever read and made me love both Maggie and Jesse Oliver even more.

One of my favorite things about Also Known As was how involved Maggie’s parents were in her life. I think this is a plus of Benway’s books, and it’s definitely still highlighted in Going Rogue. There is a case of parent separation for a bit, but it totally makes since with the plot and up to that point, Maggie’s parents actually act like real parents. They worry about her, argue with her, but also love her in a way that translates onto the page. This is contrasted with Roux’s parents, who often ignore their daughter, and I love how Maggie’s parents start caring for Roux as well. Even though this is a spy book, the family dynamics are some of the best.

The heart of Going Rogue is still as humorous and light-hearted as the first, but with more adventure and actual spy action. Every returning character made me love them just as much, especially Angelo, who I barely mentioned at all up to this point but was definitely one of the winning points of Going Rogue. I will say that there are some new characters introduced who I felt didn’t get enough time to really be developed in the way I thought they were suppose to be. Still, once again Benway made me like the teenage spy genre, a type of book I never thought I would pick up.

Friends, I just can never get enough of good spy stories. Since I enjoyed the first book in this series, ALSO KNOWN AS, so much, I was super excited to read Robin Benway’s GOING ROGUE. I’ve been craving more shenanigans with Maggie and her spy family, but there are fewer best friends I love more than Roux, or boyfriends I love more than Jesse. GOING ROGUE was everything I hoped it would be: fun, adventurous, funny, swoony, and fast-paced. I hope very much that Robin Benway keeps these books coming because they’re good stuff from start to finish.

Now that Maggie and her parents are retired from the Collective and living in New York permanently, things have taken on a vibe of normalcy. Maggie is spending her summer studying for her SATs with her bff, Roux, spending time with her super adorable boyfriend, Jesse, and meeting up with her still-mysterious but always awesome “uncle” Angelo. Things are going along just fine, thanks, until the Collective cooks up some drama and accuses Maggie’s parents of stealing some valuables from a job the worked decades ago, and all of a sudden things are moving at warp speed as Maggie and her friends travel the globe to prove her parent’s innocence.

The standout in GOING ROGUE is Maggie. I have to admit that I liked Roux the best in ALSO KNOWN AS, and she is still her sassy, excellent self in GOING ROGUE and I luffed her. But I really enjoyed seeing Maggie take the reins of this job, and taking so many things on her shoulders. She gets to flex her skills as a lock-picker and takes on the responsibility of locating the gold coins and their true thief with gusto, so that her parents might be spared the awful retribution of the Collective. WORD, Maggie. WORD.

Of course, all of this going on surveillance missions and traveling around trying to find some gold coins and facing off with the bad guy leaves her relationship with Jesse in a weird place. She misses some things and has a hard time juggling her responsibility to her parents and her loyalty to Jesse. The good news is that GOING ROGUE just basically cements the two of them as the most adorable couple EVAR, and Jesse as the cutest, awesomest boyfriend around. I love how he and Roux support Maggie and want to do whatever they can to help her and her parents. Jesse warms my heart, though. And GOING ROGUE has some of the best flirty banter thanks to Maggie and Jesse, and the swoons were legit, too.

One of my favorite things about spy stories–and about GOING ROGUE specifically–is the way they always seem to expose secrets, real or imagined, about things we all know or things that are right under our noses. We get some lore about Faberge eggs, a secret subway station under The Plaza hotel, and some scenes in the catacombs under Paris. Getting to jet around the globe with Maggie, Jesse, and Roux was fun and full of intrigue and danger and action. Big fan of that, ALWAYS.

Also, can I just say that I really enjoyed the little hints and glimpses we got of Roux and Angelo’s father-daughter relationship? I loved that we learned of their get-togethers and chats. It gave me warm-fuzzies to learn that Roux–amazing, vibrant, loyal, hilarious Roux–had a grown-up who cared and paid attention to her. I cheered for her when she forged a really sweet butterflies-in-my-tummy connection with one of the new characters we meet. (The new characters are all super, by the way. Trying not to give away too many details! But they make GOING ROGUE even better.)

I really can’t say enough how much I loved basically everything about Robin Benway’s GOING ROGUE. It had a great plot that zoomed along at a nice clip, a decently bad baddie (although the parts with him were probably the weakest), wonderful characters, adorable romances, great parents, travel, action, humor, and feelings. The end seems both open and closed, so I’m not sure where Robin Benway is planning to go from here–if she’s planning to go anywhere–but I’d keep reading books about Maggie and Jesse and Roux FOR SURE.
