Betanda Shanam’s Review
An outstanding read!
Anne Goode and her best friend Jake Wallis find themselves pawns in a Russian villain`s evil plot, fighting against time to save her parents and millions of others. Anne uses her skills as an inventor and aptitudes as a genius to try and outsmart both the Russians and the CIA. Neither of which she can trust to keep her parents alive. Anne and Jake find themselves in difficult situations pushing their physical, mental, and moral capacity to the limit.
This action adventure did not disappoint. I’m not a huge fan of action adventure and I thought I was in for a long hard read. However, Nicole Nadeau’s writing glides over the pages to unfold a seamless thrilling read. Nicole’s writing enabled me to visualise the story and I particularly enjoyed the action scenes. They were easy to follow and imagine. I was surprised, as this is not something I find myself being able to do with a lot of other action books.
Anne Goode, the main character, and her friend, Jake Wallis, are great role models for young adults; they are faithful, brave and good-hearted. Despite being bullied Anne stays strong with the support of her friend Jake, who sees Anne for who she is and not for her differences.
I would recommend this book to both young adults and adults.
I look forward to the next sequel in The Secret life of Anne Goode.
I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
