All fall down by Ally Carter

An Embassy Row novel. Scholastic, 2015. ISBN: 9781743628942
(Age: 13+) Highly recommended.
'The scar that is very real.
The scar that is perfectly clear.
The scar that has haunted my dreams every night since the moment my mother died - from the moment the Scarred Man killed her.'
Grace Blakely is a 16 year old girl. A 16 year old girl, who three years ago, witnessed the murder of her mother. Or so she says. No one believes her and they become even more skeptical when she claims to see him in the state of Adria. Everyone tells her that her mother's death was an accident, but Grace knows the truth. And she will do everything she can to catch the man behind it - the Scarred Man.
I would recommend this book to teenage girls, 13 and over. Boys who enjoy some action stories about friendship would also like this book.
Ally Carter is an inspiring author who knows how to portray the characters' emotions and feelings. Another Embassy Row Novel is due to come out soon and I am sure it will be just as interesting as the first one.
