Emma Jacks has a secret identity. As well being as an apparently normal twelve-year-old school girl, she is also EJ12, a code breaker for Shine, an agency responsible for protecting the world from Shadows evil plans. In Time to Shine, both of Emma’s worlds are going through an upheaval as her close friend and Shine team-member, Elle (EK12), is moving to England. Emma is having trouble coming to terms with this and so begins the tale of the biggest change in her life – her recruitment to Shine.

As an Agent-in-Training, Emma is faced with many challenges and situations, the hardest of which is skydiving. But she faces them all with the same quick thinking, bravery and focus that singled her out for the spy agency in the first place.

When evil agency Shadow leaks oil into the ocean, demanding a ransom, Emma is thrown into her first mission. She hopes she is up to the task. After all, baby seal’s lives are at stake. This is the sixteenth book in the popular and entertaining series for young girls.
