I was trained from birth to be the best Agent possible. Growing up in a Military Training Academy for unwanted children has its perks. I might not have ever been to a dance but I am a sharp shooter, master at hand to hand combat and best hacker the Academy has ever seen. I trained my whole life to pass the final and become an Elite agent. The only problem? My entire life has been a lie. My father is a monster and I’ve been trained to kill monsters.

In Operation Child Soldier, Aria’s life can hardly be compared to an ordinary life. Rather than having a regular, ordinary childhood, she grew up in the Military Training Academy for unwanted children. She’s a sharp shooter, excellent at hand to hand combat, and an extraordinary hacking. She’s spent her whole life training to become an Elite agent, but there’s a problem… Her life is based on a lie, and the more she digs for the truth, the more earth-shattering secrets and lies she uncovers.

Aria’s feelings are raw and brutal, and connecting with her is easy. Her pain is real, her feelings are real. The author did a wonderful job crafting her personality and making her appear realistic. She has a strong personality, she’s intelligent and brave, and once she puts her mind to something, she doesn’t give up.

The writing is good too, and the pacing is very fast. The descriptions tend to be short and to the point, but that works well for a fast-paced book like this one. Parts of the story were heart-breaking, parts of it made me smile, but overall, it was an intriguing rollercoaster ride. Recommended to all fans of YA books.
