Grace can only remember little bits about the day her mom died. What she remembers is her mom being shot by a man with a scar. Graces’ family has been trying to convince her that her mom died in an accidental fire. Is Grace crazy? Did she make the whole memory up? Who should she believe? The first half of the book you are getting to know the different characters that live on Embassy Row. The last quarter of the book is where most of the action happens. This book was enjoyable to read. I was hoping for more action, but I can tell the author is laying the ground work for the next book. I am putting this for 6th grade and up because a huge part of this book is dealing with Grace’s internal struggle with what she thinks she sees and what everyone whats her to believe happened.
