Look Into My Eyes (Ruby Redfort) by Lauren Child

At the age of seven Ruby cracked a code that had been puzzling adults.  A year later she wrote her own code that took government teams two years to break.  Now at age 13 she has been drafted by a top secret agency to help crack a code and stop the theft of a priceless piece of artwork.  Being looked after by her secret agent butler and with the help of her best friend, Ruby gets in deeper than she was supposed to.  But what's a girl supposed to do when she has the skills (and the stolen gadgets) to make her a success?  I found Ruby fairly annoying and the mystery a bit young for my liking.
