Conspiracy Girl by Sarah Alderson
Everybody knows about the Cooper Killings – the Bel Air home invasion that rocked the nation.
There was only one survivor - a sixteen year-old girl.
And though the killers were caught they walked free.
Now eighteen, Nic Preston - the girl who survived - is trying hard to rebuild her life. She’s security conscious to the point of paranoia and her only friend is a French Mastiff bulldog, but she’s making progress. She’s started college in New York and has even begun dating.
But then one night her apartment is broken into and the life Nic’s worked so hard to create is shattered in an instant.
Finn Carter - hacker, rule breaker, player – is the last person Nic ever wants to see again. He’s the reason her mother’s killers walked free from court. But as the people hunting her close in, Nic has to accept that her best and possibly only chance of staying alive is by keeping close to Finn and learning to trust the person she’s sworn to hate.
Fleeing across a snowbound New England, frantically trying to uncover the motive behind the murders, Nic and Finn come to realize the conspiracy is bigger than they could ever have suspected. But the closer they get to the truth and the closer they get to each other, the greater the danger becomes.
To survive she has to stay close to him.
To keep her safe he has to keep his distance.
I have been a fan of Sarah Alderson's books for a while and I'm come to know what to expect from them. they are always fast paced and exciting and always feature an incredibly hot boy.
This book is no exception. From the first chapter the story goes off with a bang and is break neck all the way through. It has huge twists and turns through out and I found myself unable to put it down as I needed to know what happened next. It begs to be made into an action film.
For me the thing that really made the book for me was the Finn. Finn is incredibly hot. The more I got to know him the more I fell for him and his goregous ways. He is ex FBI and all action and computer nerdy too. Hot and Geeky. My perfect combo.
So would I recommend this book? Absolutely read it and fall in love with Finn.
