About the book:
A terror with no answer needs a girl with no limits.
I am the daughter of the first female POTUS, and today is about to become the longest day of my life…
24 hours—that’s how much time I have to save my mother before terrorists assassinate her. But now my father and brother are missing, too. This goes deeper than anyone thinks. Only someone on the inside would know how to pull this off—how to make the entire First Family disappear.
I can’t trust anyone, so it’s up to me to uncover the conspiracy and stop these madmen. Because little do they know, they picked the wrong person to terrorize.
My name is Sophie Washington, and I will not be a victim. No one, I repeat no one, is taking me or my family down. But the clock is ticking…
T-Minus by Shannon Greenland is a young adult thriller in which the teenage main character is the daughter of the current US President which happens to also be the first female president. We all know of the secret service and how they protect the president along with their family members and this story begins with a bang when a new threat happens.
Sophie Washington is the presidents daughter and she finds herself right in the middle of danger when she’s awakened to find her family has been ordered into protection only her brother is missing. Worried about her brother’s safety Sophie defies the orders to be taken off away from her family and begins to investigate on her own.
T-Minus was one of those books that survive and thrive on the pure adrenaline thrill that begins immediately and never really let’s up. Of course our main character is told to trust no one so she’s then drawn to hiding from everyone and finding out how to rescue her family on her own which sometimes can feel a bit over the top but not so much so it took away from the action and adventure.
I received an advance copy from the publisher via NetGalley.
