If you were building an organization of iconic YA spies… who would you want on your team?
In The Athena Protocol by Shamim Sarif, Jessie Archer is a member of an elite organization of female spies, bent on enacting vigilante justice around the world. The organization is headed up by a group of highly successful, truly badass women, and run by young agents like Jessie herself. Sounds ideal, no? Until, on what should be a routine mission, Jessie goes rogue, alienating herself from the rest of Athena. What follows is an action-packed adventure, with Jessie outrunning both enemies and friends…
And speaking of friends, the members of Athena are all AH-MAZING and tbh, made us a little jealous we’re not in a spy squad of our own. So, we thought we’d build one. Who would you put on your ideal YA team? See how your opinions stack up with the rest of us book nerds.

About The Athena Protocol
Bourne Identity meets Karen McManus in this action-packed series opener about a spy gone rogue, perfect for fans of Ally Carter and Killing Eve.
Jessie Archer is a member of the Athena Protocol, an elite organization of female spies who enact vigilante justice around the world.
Athena operatives are never supposed to shoot to kill—so when Jessie can’t stop herself from pulling the trigger, she gets kicked out of the organization, right before a huge mission to take down a human trafficker in Belgrade.
Jessie needs to right her wrong and prove herself, so she starts her own investigation into the trafficking. But going rogue means she has no one to watch her back as she delves into the horrors she uncovers. Meanwhile, her former teammates have been ordered to bring her down. Jessie must face danger from all sides if she’s to complete her mission—and survive.
