The students of Green Lane Academy roam their halls unaware that below their manicured campus exists a prestigious school of an entirely different kind . . . Sixteen-year-old Phoebe Pope has enrolled at the Campus Below: a spy academy for shape-shifters hidden deep beneath the grounds of a boarding school whose humans unknowingly protect it. There, thanks to a carefully planned schedule, she leads a double life: spy trainee Below and normal teenager Above. As if two course loads, concealing a secret power she alone wields, and coping with her father's recent death weren't enough, Phoebe finds herself developing major feelings for actor and teen heartthrob Colten Chase, who attends the Campus Above and appears to be majoring in winning Phoebe's heart. But when officials learn that Phoebe may be at the center of a startling prophecy, she becomes the target of shape-shifting assassins who will stop at nothing to suppress the truth. Now Phoebe's lessons about Shaper's enemies and spycraft take on great importance as a menace stalks the campus, with Phoebe as its target. Meanwhile, what began as an unlikely relationship with Colten, quickly morphs into heartache when she suspects that something sinister lurks beneath this movie star's glitter and fame. Suddenly, Phoebe's caught in a mesh of lies, betrayals, and danger where she doesn't know who to trust, and needs to rely on herself--and her secret power--to get to the truth and to stay alive.

This one was ok. I thought it would be so much better, but sadly that was not the case. There were HUGE infodumps disguised as class info, too much slang that I barely understood, and it just was not that interesting. Plus some awfully predictable plot twists. XD Ok there was one twist I was shocked...
There are just books that catch you completely off guard, that surprise you with that amazing feeling of "WHOA. I can't get enough of this this!". Phoebe Pope and the Year of Four picked me up, and transported me somewhere that I wanted to stay immersed in, for a long time. Nya Jade has one hell of ...

The writing style was fantastic and this book has such a fast pace you don’t realise the pages are turning so quickly. The charac...
