you're going through hell...keep going.
Seventeen-year-old coder Jinx Marshall grew up spending weekends drilling with her paranoid dad for a doomsday she’s sure will never come. She’s an expert on self-heating meal rations, Krav Maga and extracting water from a barrel cactus. Now that her parents are divorced, she’s ready to relax. Her big plans include making it to level 99 in her favorite MMORPG and spending the weekend with her new hunky stepbrother, Toby.
But all that disaster training comes in handy when an explosion traps her in a burning building. Stuck leading her headstrong stepsister, MacKenna, and her precocious little brother, Charles, to safety, Jinx gets them out alive only to discover the explosion is part of a pattern of violence erupting all over the country. Even worse, Jinx’s dad stands accused of triggering the chaos.
In a desperate attempt to evade paramilitary forces and vigilantes, Jinx and her siblings find Toby and make a break for Mexico. With seemingly the whole world working against them, they’ve got to get along and search for the truth about the attacks—and about each other. But if they can survive, will there be anything left worth surviving for?
Usually the only time I pick up a book that involves politics is when it's a thriller so I was surprised when I decided to give this one a try and I'm glad I did, because it actually had me hooked from the first page to the every end , one of the reasons and I would say the biggest reason was the twist and turns that came with each new page and chapter , and at every turn it made you wounder about which of the characters was trustable or not . As well as non pack action though out the hole book, as for the characters , the only one I had some trouble with was Mackeena, because there was times I just wanted to to tell her to grow up and act her age, but eventually she came to realize that but it took her a long while to do it.other than that I had no other problem with it at all, and can't wait to seen what happens in the next book .With that said I want to thank Harlequin Teen and Netgalley for letting me read and review it exchange for my honest opinion .
