Summary from NetGalley
Grace is absolutely certain of three things:
1. She isn’t crazy.
2. Her mother was murdered.
3. Someday she’s going to find the man with the scar, and then she is going to make him pay.
As certain as Grace is about these facts, nobody else believes her – so there’s no one she can completely trust. Not her grandfather, a powerful ambassador. Not her new friends, who all live on Embassy Row. Not Alexei, the Russian boy next door who is keeping an eye on Grace for reasons she neither likes nor understands.
Everybody wants Grace to put on a pretty dress and a pretty smile, blocking out all her un-pretty thoughts. But they can’t control Grace – no more than Grace can control what she knows or what she needs to do.
Her past has come back to hunt her . . . and if she doesn’t stop it, Grace isn’t the only one who will get hurt.
Because on Embassy Row, the countries of the world all stand like dominoes, and one wrong move can make them all fall down.
I’ve been wanting to read the serie Gallagher girls by Ally Carter for a while now. That is a serie we have at the library I work at, but it seems like someone is always borrowing it, so it’s never there when I have time to read it. That is one of the reasons I was so happy I was approved to read All fall down, the first book in her serie Embassy Row. I would finally get to read a book by Ally Carter 🙂
I think Grace is a very good main character. She isn’t afraid, she is smart, but still does stupid things. She has a way of being snarky without being mean. She isn’t the best at the whole friend-thing with the people she meets. She judge people, but she is capable of realising that first impression might be wrong sometimes.
Noah is a great bestfriend to Grace, even when she doesn’t want him to be. She is slowly realising that friends can be good to have. Trusting said friends however, a lot harder that what it probably should be. I get her though, some people are harder to let yourself trust than others. That doesn’t mean that it isn’t worth it in the end. Sometimes it just takes some times to let yourself trust other people.
I can’t wait to read more about Grace and her friends! (so the only question now is; when is the next book in Embassy Row going to come out?)
