You Don't Know My Name
by Orlando, Kristen

Raised to be an elite spy, 17-year-old Reagan must choose whether she will honor her family's legacy by using her incredible talents to lead a dangerous life, or throw it all away to pursue a normal relationship with the boy she loves. A first novel and chosen to be the first Swoon Reads hardcover. Simultaneous eBook.

Writing is one of the great loves of Kristen Orlando's life and she has been lucky enough to make it her living, first as a television producer, then as a marketer and now as a novelist. Kristen graduated with a B.A. in English literature from Kenyon College. She lives in Columbus, Ohio with the other great love of her life, Michael. You Don't Know My Name is her debut novel.

Reagan Elizabeth Hillis can speak eight languages, wield an M4 carbine, and even knows "10 different ways to break someone's neck." The daughter of two big-name operatives for the Black Angels, a highly classified governmental agency, Reagan began her backbreaking training regimen at an early age. Now, as an almost high-school grad, it's expected she'll soon follow in her parents' footsteps. Though she's accustomed to juggling everything from aliases and A's to recurring relocations and fleeting friendships, a deepening connection with "RGF" (really good friend) Luke and the resurgence of a ruthless crime kingpin have Reagan frantically reassessing her future. Debut author Orlando strikes a fast-paced, flirty, and mostly believable balance between timely teenage conflicts (crippling anxiety, fruitless study sessions, humiliating house parties) and pure peril. While the premise itself is largely conventional, Orlando's choice to resist resolving Reagan's looming crises and to prolong romantic development is refreshing. This one's a page-turner, and the unexpectedly catastrophic conclusion-and lingering promise of sweet revenge-suggests Orlando, much like Reagan, is just getting started.
