All Fall Down by Ally Carter (Embassy Row #1)
Ally Carter, author of the popular Gallagher Girls and Heist Society series, has written the first book in a new series: Embassy Row. Sixteen year old Grace has been sent to live with her grandfather, the American ambassador to the European county of Adria, while her Army father is deployed. Grace has not been to Adria for 3 years, when her mother died in front of her. While Grace has been told her mother died in a fire, Grace is sure she was shot by a man with a scar. Grace has resolved to stop reckless behavior from her younger years so her grandfather will be proud of her, but can’t seem to change her habits. Grace and other “embassy brats” whose parents represent different countries follow suspicious characters through ancient tunnels, sure they are on the track of a nefarious plot. What they find surprises them.
I have been a devoted fan of Ally Carter’s two series and am waiting for the next installment in this series.
