Publisher's Summary

Best-selling author Ally Carter returns with an exciting standalone novel, about a girl stranded in the middle of the Alaskan wilderness with the boy who wronged her...as an assassin moves in.

Maddie and Logan were torn apart by a kidnapping attempt when they were young. They were only kids - Logan's dad was POTUS and Maddie's father was the Secret Service agent meant to guard him. The kidnappers were stopped - but Maddie was whisked off to Alaska with her father, for safety. Maddie and Logan had been inseparable...but then she never heard from him again.

Now it's a few years later. Maggie's a teenager, used to living a solitary life with her father. It's quiet - until Logan is sent to join them. After all this time without word, Maddie has nothing to say to him - until their outpost is attacked, and Logan is taken. They won't be out of the woods until they're...out of the woods, and Maddie's managed to thwart the foes and reconcile with Logan.

Really Enjoyed this

I really enjoyed this book. I thought the wilderness setting really added to it, and there was just the right amount of everything.

Great read!

My daughter and I read this book together. She is 11 years old and it was rated in her reading level. The storyline was appealing to both of us. It was a great read!

Teen anger, loneliness in the Alaskan wilderness

This is my kind of youth fiction! This confusing move to the middle of nowhere, estranged friends, Russian bad buys, kidnapping, escape, hunting and tracking skills, How can two kids save themselves from armed Russian mob guys! Oh, yeah, and learning to understand others, to communicate, and to forgive.

Enjoyable

The plot was predictable, as were the characters - standard Ally Carter super teens - but the narrator made listening to the book enjoyable. I liked how each character had their own distinctive ‘voice.’ So, if you’re an Ally Carter fan, this book is a must. If you’re not, but like a quick read/listen, I would recommend it. Looking forward to listening to more books by this narrator.

Awesome teen girl hero spy adventure story

My 11 year old daughter bought this book at the school book fair. I often read her books to know what she’s reading. This has been my favorite of her books. My daughter also loves it.

The tone

I love this story yes but, the performance of the book was not as good. The reader did not keep a good tone a voice of annoyance or boredom for Maddie’s character, she just seemed... depressed. It could have been because of the narrators voice and I feel like it didn’t catch the tone as much as she needed to. But, I would definitely recommend this to other people and it was great overall.

Decent story, definitely for teens

It’s a bit on the cheesy side and definitely written for pre-teen/teens, but it was a decent story. I was not really a fan of the narrator though. She was overly dramatic in parts, often sounding like she was on the verge of tears. And she was very breathy at times too.

Adventure/Excitement/Intrigue
