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.

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.

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!

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.

Interesting YA

Good listening experience; the narrator gave a good performance and she has a nice voice that works for the characters.

Entertaining enough YA read; I like the premise of the president’s son, Logan, and the head of the secret service’s daughter, Maddie, being best friends and needing each other to survive a kidnapping in the wilderness. There was an incident that caused Maddie and her father to go into hiding; it’s been about 6 years, when Logan is sent to stay with Maddie and her father. Things quickly go wrong when some bad guys are after Logan, which leads to a trek of survival in the wilderness. Maddie and Logan had a bit of a falling out too, so they need to work past their issues. Also, now that they are older (16ish), they are feeling a bit of attraction towards each other. There was some stupid choices by Maddie and Logan, so that can be frustrating, but the story kept me interested. I liked the read; enjoyed the snowy forest setting, and the story goes in some interesting ways.

Always a good read

C’mon, if you read one of these books you know what you are getting and I love that. The non-stop adventure, the questionable sexual tension between teens 😳, the quirky main characters - this book made me miss the Gallagher Girls even more. Great entertainment!!
