T-Minus by Shannon Greenland is a young adult thriller in which the teenage main character is the daughter of the current US President which happens to also be the first female president.

There was a lot to like in this YA thriller--and some bumps in the road that kept me from loving it.

First the things I liked. The central mystery as it unfolded was interesting, and avoided black and white hats. It was a believable issue, with creepily believable reactions on the part of those taking said action.

The pacing overall was fast, accelerating steadily as the teens drove the action. I liked the main character, daughter of the first female President. I mostly enjoyed the voice, finding

With a title like T-Minus and such a gripping cover, I had no doubt that this was going to be one long adrenaline rush of thrills and twists and I was not mistaken. I did have to remember to keep in mind that this fell in the Young Adult genre so I would cut it some slack a few times, but, at other times, like when the danger got deadly, I blinked in surprise that this was young adult making this book something of a captivating crossover between the two.

T-Minus begins with First daughter of the

I have been a fan of Shannon Greenland's books that she has written under this name or the initials S.E Green. I have read nearly all of them, ever since 2011-2012 when I first discovered her series The Specialists which were a group of teen spies, this was my first introduction to a theme that I found myself loving for many years to follow and still to date. So when I saw T-Minus offered on Netgalley and for a tour, I knew I had to read it. T-Minus takes us into the life of our main character S ...more

This was an absolutely fun read. I left all my analysis aside and read the book for the pure thrill of it. Sophie was the daughter of the first female American President. A terrorist threat forced her family to separate out. Her brother Erik was missing and soon kidnapped by a terrorist. Sophie had to use all her skills and her intelligence to get to the truth along with the help of her friends.

My first book by Shannon Greenland was a pure 3 hours of adrenaline. The book didn't give me time to

I received an Advance Reader Copy from the publisher via NetGalley. This in no way impacted on my view.

This book was one that I read on one of the sea days on my cruise last year, and it was such a quick and easy read. Being the daughter of the first female President, Sophie is no stranger to how dangerous her life may be. Her and her brother have been taught everything that the experts think they need to know to protect themselves, but when the First Family are warned of an imminent threat, and

I can finally take a breath.

I volunteered to read this book because it was labeled as a young 24, and I was such a fan of that show. Well this is exactly that, and boy does it deliver an emotional punch. A fantastic set of characters. Nonstop action. Cute romance. Smart plot.

Love love love.

This is a younger version of the show 24 and it shows.

With the news that her brother is missing, Sophie skips out on her security detail to uncover the truth behind the attacks and save her family.

Once I got past the rather eyebrow-raising premise of this book and let myself go with the flow, so to speak, I had a good time watching Sophie fight back when the unthinkable happens to her family. What makes her story so intriguing is that her family is the First Family, not your everyday family in the local neighborhood. To say the stakes are much higher is not an overstatement.

Mind you, Sophie isn’t entirely alone in her fight against whoever the bad guys are. In fact, a strong and very appe

Have you ever seen those posters where it’s the body counts for all of the Shakespeare plays? I haven’t read a lot of Shakespeare, but I think that if you added this book on there, it would take the cake for most deaths. Honestly, the characters just kept dropping like flies. The author broke my heart!

This book was right up my alley if you take away the tons of deaths. I love me a good spy/action book so this was perfect. Plus, throw in just the tiny bit of romance and it becomes so much better!

Overall, this was a pretty good story with lots of potential!! I was hooked to find out how and why it all went down. However, I felt like it lacked some background information about the characters and the country for me to be fully emerged into and engaged with the the story.

Shannon Greenland's T-Minus is being sold as 24 for teens. Pretty good description. This espionage thriller sets a tight ticking clock and high personal stakes that will keep readers turning pages until the end. 17-year old Sophie Washington's mother is the first female President of the USA.

Don't expect anyone not to die. Shannon Greenland's YA political thriller has a larger body count than I expected, but that's what makes it exciting, right?

Sophie Washington: teenager with a crush on her best friend, daughter of the first female POTUS, skilled member of the TIA (like the CIA but for kids). Now she can add America's only hope to that list.

I'd give this a 3.5 rating (rounded up to 4, since GR doesn't do half stars). There were a number of things I really liked, and a few that didn't work as well for me.

~the overall story -- this was definitely good, and I was engaged from beginning to end.

Things you should know about me: I write novels! Some have won awards. Others have been bestsellers. Under Shannon Greenland (my real name) you’ll find spies, adventure, and romantic suspense. Under S. E. Green (my pen) you’ll find dark and gritty fiction about serial killers, cults, secret societies that do bad things, and whatever else my twisted brain deems to dream up.
