Girl from Nowhere
"A fast-paced spy thriller with enough twists and turns to keep readers entertained." - Publishers Weekly
Red Sparrow meets One of Us Is Lying in this action-packed, romance-filled YA debut about a girl trying to outrun her past.
Ninety-four countries. Thirty-one schools. Two bullets. Now it's over . . . or so she thinks.
Sophia Hepworth has spent her life all over the world--moving quickly, never staying in one place for too long. She knows to always look over her shoulder, to be able to fight to survive at a moment's notice. She has trained to be ready for anything.
Except this. Suddenly it's over. Now Sophia is expected to attend high school in a sleepy Montana town. She is told to forget the past, but she's haunted by it. As hard as she tries to be like her new friends and live a normal life, she can't shake the feeling that this new normal won't last.
Then comes strong and silent Aksel, whose skills match Sophia's, and who seems to know more about her than he's letting on . . .
What if everything Sophia thought she knew about her past is a lie?
Cinematic and breathtaking, Tiffany Rosenhan's debut stars a fierce heroine who will risk everything to save the life she has built for herself.
Growing up moving from country to country due to her parents' diplomatic duties, Sophia Hepworth,16, is not like other girls her age: she is fluent in 14 languages, has training in various weaponry, and retains several traumatic memories. But when her parents retire to settle in the Montana ski town of Waterford, Sophia must try to fit in and make friends. Catching the eye of Aksel Fredricksen, a Waterford High senior with sharpshooting abilities who seems to be hiding something, Sophia begins to adjust to life, even as her training and sixth sense warn her that someone may be following her. As Sophia's past catches up with her and her relationship with Aksel deepens, she begins to discover more about her parents, their true jobs, and who she really is including her role in the machinations of an international terrorist conspiracy. Unpolished prose, gratuitous gun violence, and a plot that includes a grizzly attack and an avalanche in quick succession may deter readers, but for those who don't mind suspending disbelief, debut novelist Rosenhan writes a fast-paced spy thriller with enough twists and turns to keep readers entertained. Ages 13 up.
This was such a good book!!!! They tied the story together really well and made all of the little details super interesting. There were a few revelations towards the end that were great
