This was my first Ally Carter book, but it certainly won't be my last! If I wasn't laughing then I was on the edge of my seat! I really didn't think that I would enjoy this book, I read it because it was on the Lone Star list, I'm so glad I was wrong. The main character is a young, strong, resourcefully girl and it is her mission to save her old best friend from Russian assassins and the Alaskan wilderness. Highly recommend to teens who enjoy action, comedy, and a little bit of romance.
