All Fall Down by Ally Carter
I am a huge Ally Carter fan, so this pains me to say. It is definitely worth a read ( Ally Carter is amazing), but I don’t think it was that good to be in the TOP 20. Without, you know, spoiling the whole book, All Fall Down’s best thing is the Embassy Row. Everything in this book revolves around this street. The fact that you can be in Brazil and then go to Germany or Russia in like 10 min was really cool. Combine that with hilarious characters plus some tough girl attitudes and you’ve got yourself a nice piece. Also the mystery and the back stories were really interesting. I just don’t think it was TOP 20 material, but Ally Carter is a pretty good writer and this was a great read.
