Review:

I had really high hopes for Blonde Ops, and while some were met, the overall pacing of the story disappointed.  It started out so promisingly, too!  Bec has been kicked out of yet another boarding school, and she’s returning home in disgrace.  A bit too smart for her own good, she was caught hacking into the school’s database to change her grades.  In retrospect, it wasn’t the brightest thing she could have done – it would have been far better to wait until after classes were out for the semester, because the likelihood of her getting busted would have been much less.  This turns out to be Bec’s greatest fault: she is impulsive and usually doesn’t think before she acts, which causes so much grief for her.
