This time I have two books for my ‘Book Spotlight’! The first one, All Fall Down, is the first book in a new series written by one of my favorite authors, Ally Carter, whose also written the Gallagher Girl series and the Heist Society series. The second one, The Silence of Six by E.C. Myers, is an interesting mystery/thriller that has an even more interesting book trailer that you should check out below. I’ll leave you to it then! Below the video there will be the book descriptions, so you can find out more about these stories. Maybe you’ll find yourself adding them to your reading list.
1. All Fall Down (Embassy Row #1) by Ally Carter
Release Date: January 27, 2015
Grace Blakely is absolutely certain of three things:
1. She is not crazy.
2. Her mother was murdered.
3. Someday she is going to find the killer and make him pay.
As certain as Grace is about these facts, nobody else believes her–so there’s no one she can completely trust. Not her grandfather, a powerful ambassador. Not her new friends, who all live on Embassy Row. Not Alexei, the Russian boy next door who is keeping an eye on Grace for reasons she neither likes nor understands.
Everybody wants Grace to put on a pretty dress and a pretty smile, blocking out all her unpretty thoughts. But they can’t control Grace–no more than Grace can control what she knows or what she needs to do.
Her past has come back to hunt her . . . and if she doesn’t stop it, Grace isn’t the only one who will get hurt. Because on Embassy Row, the countries of the world all stand like dominoes, and one wrong move can make them all fall down.
2. The Silence of Six by E.C. Myers
Release Date: November 5, 2014
“What is the silence of six, and what are you going to do about it?”
These are the last words uttered by 17-year-old Max Stein’s best friend, Evan: Just moments after hacking into the live-streaming Presidential debate at their high school, he kills himself.
Haunted by the image of Evan’s death, Max’s entire world turns upside down as he suddenly finds himself the target of a corporate-government witch-hunt. Fearing for his life and fighting to prove his own innocence, Max goes on the run with no one to trust and too many unanswered questions.
Max must dust off his own hacking skills and maneuver the dangerous labyrinth of underground hacktivist networks, ever-shifting alliances, and virtual identities — all while hoping to find the truth behind the “Silence of Six” before it’s too late.
