I tried, but I couldn't find myself interested in the story. The chapters weren't really explaining itself; it's not a book you could just grab and start reading, you'd have to read the front and back and even then you'd be like "What the heck? I don't understand?"

A 2017-2018 Truman Readers Award nominee (grades 6-8). Grace believes that she saw a man kill her mom. Her family says that's not true, but she doesn't believe them, and she is determined to find the killer.

Tbh, I didn't really like this at all... Too many characthers were introduced and the author tried to hard to make the mc seem 'badass'. Even the antoginist seemed off. Also, their were too many ideas crammed into one book. The 'embassy row' stuff was cool, but why was there a murder mystery added to it as well? On top of that, the mc makes like 3 friends at the start who barley get any lines. Maybe my standards are too high amd that's why I didn't like it? Anyways, dropped it near the beginning.

This is full of unexpected scenes and has every element that good fiction should have: comedy, romance, drama and cliff hangers galore. The plot is packed with suspense and girl power!

A very gripping, fast-paced story with tons of action and even more heart. Great story that will keep you on the edge until the very last page. An intense read, both in action and in emotion.

This books is very exciting and relatively fast paced. The embassy setting pairs a luxurious, Gossip Girl-esque lifestyle with international intrigue.

I really like the embassy row theme, it was very interesting. I admired Grace's strong and determined personality and how she stays calm under fire. But I think she should be a little less impulsive and stay calm instead of raging if she wants people to take her seriously and help her. I also think she was kind of harsh on Lila when she first met her. Grace had only just met Lila and she jumped to conclusions, assuming that Lila was a horrible person because of what she looked like, and she wasn't that bad. Also, I really loved the surprise ending.

This book is great! I love the plot and characters of the story. Ally Carter writes it very well. It never gets boring! How she describes how Grace is feeling really helps you to understand her and what she is going through.
The ending does get confusing, and I'm not very satisfied with it, so that (and of course because the book is so exciting) is why I need to read the next book! :D
