Someday I'm going to write a book: How Not to Die in Alaska - A Girl's Guide to Fashionable Survival.
I bet you don't know that a hair pin can make an excellent fishing hook. You may think you can use just any kind of mud for mud masks, but trust me, you CAN'T! In a pinch, nothing starts a fire like nail polish remover. Alaska is tough. You might know this, if you ever replied to my letters.
After Maddie's Secret Service dad takes a bullet for the president, he takes Maddie somewhere he thinks they'll be safe - far away from the White House and the president's son, Logan.
But when Logan comes to Alaska, so does the danger.
If there's one thing Alaska has taught Maddie, it's how to survive. And now her best friend's life depends on it ...
An edge-of-your-seat thriller from the internationally bestselling author of Gallagher Girls
The son of the U.S. president and the daughter of a Secret Service agent wind up in a fight for their lives in this tense romantic thriller from Carter (the Embassy Row series). When they were young, Maddie Manchester was Logan's only friend amid the isolation and strict protocols of the White House. But after her father was shot during an attempted abduction of the first lady, Maddie and her father moved to the wilderness of Alaska. For years, Maddie wrote Logan letters, but they went unanswered. So she's furious when Logan's antics get him sent to their tiny Alaskan cabin after six years of silence she barely knows this suddenly tall (and handsome) boy. When Logan is kidnapped, Maddie using her finely honed survival skills sets out to rescue him so she can kill (or kiss) him herself. The characters are dynamic and engaging: Maddie's hypercompetence and all-business attitude contrast deliciously with Logan's jokey sarcasm. The teens' childhood friendship evolves into a sweet romance, and the fast-paced thrills will keep readers up late. Ages 12 up.
