Book Blitz: They Call Me Alexandra Gastone by T.A. Maglagan

Welcome to the book blitz for They Call Me Alexandra Gastone! Ever since I heard of it, I've been super excited to read it!

Title: They Call Me Alexandra Gastone
Author: T.A. Maclagan
Release: May 20th, 2015
Publisher: Full Fathom Five Digital


When your life is a lie, how do you know what’s real?

Alexandra Gastone has a simple plan: graduate high school, get into Princeton, work for the CIA, and serve her great nation.

She was told the plan back when her name was Milena Rokva, back before the real Alexandra and her family were killed in a car crash.

Milena was trained to be a sleeper agent by Perun, a clandestine organization from her true homeland of Olissa. There, Milena learned everything she needed to infiltrate the life of CIA analyst Albert Gastone, Alexandra’s grandfather, and the ranks of America’s top intelligence agency.

For seven years, “Alexandra” has been on standby and life’s been good. Grandpa Albert loves her, and her strategically chosen boyfriend, Grant, is amazing.

But things are about to change. Perun no longer needs her at the CIA in five years’ time. They need her active now.

Between her cover as a high school girl—juggling a homecoming dance, history reports, and an increasingly suspicious boyfriend—and her mission in this high-stakes spy game, the boundaries of her two lives are beginning to blur.

Will she stay true to the country she barely remembers, or has her loyalty shattered along with her identity?

Author Bio:

T.A. Maclagan is a Kansas girl by birth but now lives in the bush-clad hills of Wellington, New Zealand with her Kiwi husband, son and four pampered cats. With a bachelor’s degree in biology and a Ph.D. in anthropology, she’s studied poison dart frogs in the rainforests of Costa Rica, howler monkeys in Panama and the very exotic and always elusive American farmer. It was as she was writing her ‘just the facts’ dissertation that T.A. felt the call to pursue something more imaginative and discovered a passion for creative writing. They Call Me Alexandra Gastone is her first novel.

  1. What an exciting premise. I've read YA spy stories before of course, but they rarely have such indepth "sleeper" identities. This seems, in many ways, more realistic compared to so many stories that just dive into spying as if teenagers could be inducted and then become competent intelligence gatherers overnight. Everything from the title to the cover makes it alluring and strange. I appreciate authors who bend reality by crafting a world that involves real places and organizations (America, CIA, etc.) with fictional places and events. This looks like a promising book, and I'm glad I had a chance to enter the give away!
