All Fall Down by Ally Carter
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Grace used to spend every summer at her grandfather’s home, but she hasn’t been there since her mother’s death three years ago. She is now sixteen and is returning with plans to stay. Her grandfather lives on Embassy Row and is considered one of the most powerful ambassadors in the world. Now that Grace has returned to this varied community, she wants to solve the mystery of her mother’s death. She remembers her mother being shot by a man with a scare on his face, but everyone in her life is trying to convince her that it was an accident, not a murder. Grace has never been one to accept other people’s explanations and she will not stop until she uncovers the truth.
All Fall Down is the first book in the Embassy Row series. Ally Carter has once again created a cast of characters that readers will quickly learn to love, yet this first book has a darker undertone that her other series did not include. There are some twists and turns in the story’s plot and even though the main story is wrapped up before the end, Carter has created a world that will enable her to generate many books in coming years. All Fall Down is a fun read and I will definitely be looking for the next book in the series.
