This "prequel" novel for the TV series tells the story of how Sydney Bristow first became involved with SD-6, what she believes to be a top-secret division of the CIA. The story itself has a typical teen plot: A brainy and socially inept girl finds a way to be tough and gorgeous, a transformation that leads to inevitable romance and adventure. Amanda Foreman reads with a light touch, conveying Sydney's emotions but making no attempt to distinguish among characters. The production features a funky, bass-heavy musical track that serves as filler between chapters and plays too loudly and obviously during important scenes. Even so, the production is good fun for "Alias" fans. A.F. (c) AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/JUL 03]
