The Unexpected Spy by Tracy Walder
When Tracy joined the CIA she went from sorority rush to being part of a poison expert team in the middle east and Africa. She had to deal with sexism from her peers and terrorists as well as undergo more scrutiny than some presidential candidates. After many years of being on the front lines and preventing as many terrorist cells from growing and attacking the west, she finally had enough and came back stateside to join the FBI where the good old boy club and proving herself began all over again. The book has a feel of authenticity because she is very open about her experiences - good and bad plus whole sections of the book are blacked out for security reasons. She is a survivor, she is fierce and I am really glad she was out there watching our back. Now she is teaching young women to make a difference and she is the perfect role model. This book is appealing even if you have no interest in the FBI, CIA or the war against terror because it is very much about standing up for yourself and doing what you think will make a difference. That will teach them to label her "Malibu Barbie".
