Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Being the Presidents daughter isnt easy, but Megs getting used to it. Shes even starting to have a life again—okay, not a normal life, but things are beginning to fall into a routine.

     Then it happens—machine guns blast, a van screeches to a halt, and masked men grab Meg and take her away.

     Meg doesnt understand what the terrorists want. She doesnt understand how her security was breached. But she does understand one thing—they have no intention of letting her live—and she has no intention of dying.

Review:

"As her senior year winds to a close, Meg is having a perfectly ordinary day at school (as ordinary as it gets with two Secret Service agents tailing her) that ends with a violent abduction arranged by terrorists. Held captive and brutalized, then left chained in an abandoned mine shaft, Meg escapes by resorting to barely conceivable heroics. Her ordeal seems to have only begun, however, as she now faces the aftermath: a grueling physical recovery that will never be complete; emotional damage from her mother's absolute refusal to deal with her kidnappers; her pervasive sense of endangerment. With this entry White proves herself a master of action and adventure fiction; readers will want to plunge immediately into the next volume, Long May She Reign, to check in on Meg's progress. And there's good news, too — White plans a fifth Meg Powers novel, although she warns that it might not be told from Meg's point of view. Ages 12 — up." Publishers Weekly (Starred Review) (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Synopsis:

Life in the White House had been hard for seventeen-year-old Meghan Powers-the endless publicity, the suffocating presence of the Secret Service, and the horror of seeing her own mother almost assassinated. But now, at the end of her senior year, things are getting back to normal. She's getting ready for college and her tennis game has never been better. Then, leaving school one afternoon, shots are fired, bodies start falling, and Meg is thrown into a speeding van. She wakes up in pain and darkness, in more trouble than she ever could have imagined. The man guarding her is terrifying. And she is in this alone. Meg must discover within herself strength she's never used before-that she didn't even know she had. She will have to summon all the courage she can muster-to survive.
