Description

IN THIS TEEN SPY THRILLER, JOCELYN STEELY IS AMERICA'S LAST SHOT TO BEAT THE NORTH KOREANS

When Jocelyn Steely was kidnapped by a North Korean spy agency, she was only a little girl. Young. Scared. Powerless. And completely moldable. Now, ten years later, she's a ruthless assassin. Yet her target isn't who you might think. Jocelyn is determined to escape her kidnappers and take down North Korea and their spy agency forever. But when she makes it to U.S. soil, she finds that not everyone believes her story. Will she be able to get the Americans to trust her? Or will the North Koreans discover her deception before she has a chance? In this life-or-death action-packed spy thriller, Meghan Rogers creates a teen girl character whose toughness, intelligence and determination rival Jason Bourne, Sydney Bristow and James Bond. The first novel in the Raven Files series will leave you breathless. Praise for Crossing the Line "Jocelyn makes for a kick-ass, determined heroine, and there's no shortage of scenes of adrenaline-charged adventure...[A] strong debut for both the author and the Raven Files series."--Publishers Weekly "There's a plot twist, revealed secret, or chase scene in every chapter--Rogers knows how to keep the pages turning....The cliff-hanger ending begs for a swift sequel."--Booklist "For fans of TV's Alias, this is the beginning of an excellent new espionage series."--School Library Journal

"Action lovers will enjoy the movie-worthy close-combat scenes, tension-building rescues, and narrow escapes, while those who like their spy stories with psychological heft will appreciate the careful portrait of Jocelyn as a trauma survivor....Perfect for readers who grew up with Carter's Gallagher Girls series and are ready for the next level."--BCCB
