Waiting on Wednesday (8): ALL FALL DOWN

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine

Title: All Fall Down
Author: Ally Carter
Series: Embassy Row #1
Release date: 

Summary: Grace Blakely is absolutely certain of three things: 

1. She is not crazy. 
2. Her mother was murdered. 
3. Someday she is going to find the killer and 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 unpretty 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. 

Thoughts: I have read the first three books in Ally Carter's Heist Society series, and absolutely loved them. They are the perfect mix of contemporary and adventure. And they're so wonderful because the situations may be crazy out there, but the characters are so real and relatable, even when they're doing the unimaginable. What I love the most about Carter's books are that they are just so much FUN, even when the plot may be a little serious. So I can't wait to pick this new series up! 

Tell me: what are YOU waiting on this week? And have you read any Ally Carter books? What did you think? Let me know in the comments below!
