Gr 3-7–On the run for as long as she can remember, Katrina has had nine different names and lived in many different towns. She’s also forbidden to appear in photographs and been trained not to trust anyone but a mysterious person called X. When a picture of her is posted online, her mom is taken by mysterious men. With her father away on business, Katrina has no choice but to trust Parker, who’s a computer hacker. Together, the two head to Atlanta in search of X. When they find him, however, the story Katrina has grown up hearing about an accident and why she and her parents are hiding doesn’t add up. To make matters worse, X is hiding something. Narrator Rebecca Soler does a great job of bringing the characters book to life. Her pacing is effective and complements the author’s writing style.
VERDICT This well-developed page turner will keep listeners on the edge of their seat. Recommended for middle grade collections.
