This is the first book i read by ally carter and I really loved it.
It is set in the fictional country that had embassies of all the different countries and it takes up this long stretch of road and all of the embassies of children that live in them. This book follows the lead character named Grace and she is haunted by her mothers death even though everyone claims it was an accident. This belief as well as other instances like somebody trying to kill the prime minster lead to a very complicated and interesting story. It was really hard to put down this book because I wanted to know what was going to happen.
I loved all the various kids we met and how simple actions can really effect thing drastically. It was both a self discovery novel but also a finding the truth novel. I really loved both the setting and the characters. Can't wait for the next one.
Check out my non-spolier mash up including All Fall down.
