How many times have you thought – life as a secret service agent must be fun? Many? Me too. Well, Maddie Manchester knows exactly what it’s like. Because her father was one. He isn’t anymore, because, well, that’s what happens when your father takes a bullet for the president. He tends to re-think his priorities and move himself and his teenage daughter to Alaska. Far away from the president and far away from the president’s son Logan, Maddie’s best friend.
Six years go by and Maddie is left in the depths of nowhere – acquiring all of the skills a typical teenager possesses, chopping wood, skiing, hiding out. Life is quiet and peaceful. That is, until Logan shows up on her doorstep, bringing his own brand of trouble right along with him. There’s nothing like the president’s son to arrive and throw your life into complete disarray.
Ally Carter’s newest adventure is fun from top to bottom. The sheer enjoyment that comes with following Maddie’s adventures is infectious. Ally Carter takes the typical teen romance and injects it with a fun dose of adventure and mayhem.
Not if I Save You First is not a book to be taken seriously, however it is very enjoyable and will give every reader a fun weekend of imagining running for your life and falling in love.
