Spy in the Struggle by Aya de LeΓ³n

Rating β˜…β˜…β˜…

This was my first book by Aya de Leon and I must say it was well worth the read. I was initially attracted to the story for two reasons, one the cover is gorgeous, and secondly, I was totally on board for the whole Black woman undercover storyline. I must say that I had no regrets after reading this one.Β 

I really loved Yolonda, the main character and I appreciated the glimpses of her past that were peppered throughout the narrative I think that was a great touch to assist in understanding her more as a person. Yolonda, who is very much an overachiever graduated from Harvard Law and lands a job and a corporate firm. After refusing to shed some compromising paperwork the firm gets indicted. Threw a strange turn of events she gets recruited by the FBI and goes undercover to spy on an African American β€œextremist” group. As she begins her work and job she struggles between her past, her new friends, and her identity as a lawyer. The combination and character development all kept me reading.
