Tess Kendrick, teen fixer extraordinaire, returns in a pulse-pounding thriller about a deadly conspiracy at the heart of Washington.
For Tess Kendrick, a junior at the elite Hardwicke School in Washington D.C., fixing runs in the family. But Tess has another legacy, too, one that involves power and the making of political dynasties. When Tess is asked to run a classmate's campaign for student council, she agrees. But when the candidates are children of politicians, even a high school election can involve life-shattering secrets.
Meanwhile, Tess's guardian has also taken on an impossible case, as a terrorist attack calls into doubt who can--and cannot--be trusted on Capitol Hill. Tess knows better than most that power is currency in D.C., but she's about to discover first-hand that power always comes with a price.
Perfect for fans of Harlan Coben and Ally Carter, the second book in this thrilling series will leave readers breathless.
So this book was everything I hoped it would be and more. I had heard it was only set to be a duology and I've been praying that's not the case. This series needs more. This book was too good for it to just end there. And with the bomb that Barnes dropped? There HAS to be more.
The synopsis makes readers think this is all about a student election and the things that Tess encounters at school along the way. I'm here to tell you it's about way more than that. Its about things you'd never see coming. So many secrets, lies, and more are sprung up during this exciting sequel."That wasn't just a bombshell. That was nuclear."
pg. 88 (ARC)
If I didn't say so before, Barnes is a freaking genius. She's the only thriller writer so far who has stumped me or given me something I didn't see coming more than once. And that's saying something because I can usually call them ALL. Barnes is a great writer who knows how to bring the twists and turns. And because of this series alone I will read any thriller she puts out!"If it came down to the rest of the world or you, I would pick you every single time."
pg. 132 (ARC)
It was really great to be with this cast of characters again as well! I loved seeing how they were more developed and all the new things we found out about them. Especially the bomb that was dropped at the end. I mean I saw it coming from the way the storyline was going, but for the confirmation, it kind of sent chills down my spine."Don't handle me with kid gloves..."
pg. 158 (ARC)
This book was so good and reminded me why I love thrillers. While reading my heart was racing and I had to put the book down to slow down for fear of a heart attack. This book will drive you crazy, but in the best way possible. I'm already waiting on the next book and I'm not even sure there will be one yet! lol"For better or worse, I had to try."
pg. 238 (ARC)
Overall, I give this
