|Ally Carter's All Fall Down|
Ally Carter is back at it with another suspenseful series. I love Carter's books. She writes strong female characters who know how to kick ass but be a little vulnerable too. Her stories are dangerous and thrilling, but fun too. This new series, Embassy Row, is no exception.
Grace lives just a stone's throw away from Russia. And Greece. And Italy. She lives on Embassy Row with all of the other diplomat's kids. Her ambassador grandfather just wants her to stay out of trouble and be happy, but it's hard for Grace to do when she knows her mother was murdered but cannot remember any of the details. It's up to her to find the killer and exact revenge. No one will believe her but she knows the truth. She embarks on a dangerous game of espionage and teenage hijinks to try to uncover the mysteries surrounding her mother's death and life. But the dangerous path she follows leads her to unexpected discoveries.
Grace is a little more "messed up" than Carter's other lead characters have been but that only makes the story more interesting. Fans of the Gallagher Girl Series and the will be sure to eat up this new series as well. I'm eagerly awaiting the rest of the series.
