Tess Kendrick has spent most of her life with her grandfather, so when her sister, Ivy Kendrick, suddenly shows up, she’s forced to move to Washington D.C. As she enrolls in Hardwicke Academy, a posh school in D.C, she starts questioning who her sister really is for her to be able to attend this school. When deliveries are made to their house on Sundays, Tess understands how little she knows of her sister’s career. When she learns the infamous Ivy Kendrick is D.C.’s official ‘fixer’, there’s no turning back. What’s even more astonishing is when Tess absent-mindedly follows the steps of her sister and soon enough becomes Hardwicke’s official ‘fixer’. But when the problems start piling up, both sisters’ worlds crash together. The problem Tess is faced with is too hard to fix and even if she is able to, she knows the price she’ll have to pay is too high. It later on occurs to Tess that anything is possible in D.C. 9/10 stars

This book is fantastic. It is the real deal. Little twist and turns. I don't like books of these story lines. But I would read all of her books. I also did not know it was a series but there is a second on. This is a 5 star book. *****

P.S read this in 6th grade.

Very thrilling! Who knew high school could be so intricately tied to the workings of national security...

I love this book. It's a smart, action packed political thriller and I tell people that it's like Scandal set in high school, but without all the romantic drama.

All the complexities of a WW2 in high school.

There wasn't a lot of "thriller" to this book, and quite a bit of it was predictable. That said, I enjoyed it for what it was and will probably continue with the series.
