Embassy Row #1: All Fall Down

We rated this book:


Author of the best-selling Gallagher Girls series Ally Carter is back and better than ever in her latest series packed with international scandal, mystery, and twists full of espionage. All Fall Down is the first novel in the series, which centers around sixteen-year-old Grace, the disgruntled granddaughter of an American ambassador. As if growing up on Embassy Row has not made Grace different enough, at age thirteen she also witnessed the horrific death of her mother. Though everyone tells her she is crazy, Grace knows what she saw: that her mother did not die in an accident as the Embassy would have her believe, but was murdered. And Grace’s return to Embassy Row only reignites her vow to avenge her mother by tracking down the killer.

All Fall Down will not disappoint fans of Carter’s previous works; in fact, the story will appeal to an even broader audience of teen espionage fans in that it has a more mature feel, relating to both male and female readers. Somewhat reminiscent of the popular 39 Clues series, All Fall Down is fast-paced and persistently intriguing in every aspect. The lovable flair of Carter’s writing paired with the thrill of a mystery-driven plot makes All Fall Down a must-read for any young adult reader.
