This is not an ordinary book: it's a BookCrossing book! BookCrossing books are world travelers - they like to have adventures and make new friends...and every once in a while they even write home to say what they've been doing.

Another 25¢ book from Book-Off (larger photo here): this one is about Jane Bond, aka Agent 007½ - recruited to impersonate her temporarily-incapacitated brother.

James Bond's lesbian twin sister is also a member of G.E.O.R.G.I.E. (Girls in Europe Organized to Right Grievances and Insure Equality) and is sent to a spy convention in the US disguised as her famous brother.

The cover art is fun and the premise isn't bad, but I couldn't get into this: maybe I just wasn't in the right mood.

Reserved for possible inclusion in emmejo's LGBTQ+ bookbox.

This book rode to the end of the bookbox. The premise sounds fun, hopefully it will be a better match for me.

I quite enjoyed this tongue-in-cheek romp, but agree with hyphen8, you need to be in the right mood. It is campy and silly, best enjoyed with the analytical part of your mind firmly in the off position. ;-) A lot of it is improbable, and there were a few times where I was rolling my eyes when the melodrama and conflict went a little too far into the realm of the ridiculous. I actually think I was most enjoying Bibi and Bridget's creative stalling and sometimes-bumbling attempts to help with the mission.

One of the starting volumes in the Otherworldly (Shrinking) Bookbox This volume is maybe pushing the definition of sci-fi a little, but there are plenty of gadgets here that are not real-world devices, so I'm including it.

Selected from the Round IV Otherworldly Bookbox.

Sounds interesting...

Journal Entry 7 by wingSpatialwing at Arlington, Virginia USA on Tuesday, June 25, 2019
Quite a fun book! Despite the need for an editor to tighten the whole thing up and a proofreader, I had a lot of fun reading this story. It is campy and I agree with the other journals that you do need to be in the right mood. The story focuses more on the characters than on the plot (the murder Jane is accused of doesn't even occur until around the 50% mark).

I was surprised to find out that this is book #2. But you can safely read this as a standalone.
Book #1: Kiss the Girls and Make Them Spy
