Thank you, Fenella!
And finally, a book that Fenella recommended. I actually read it in three days! I really enjoyed it.
Sarah Alderson - Out of Control
The two main characters, Liv and Jay are in a police station, for very different reasons, when a gunman bursts in killing anyone who gets in his way. They escape in a stolen police car and begin a race through New York City to find out who and why someone is after them.
It's a YA thriller/romance with fast-paced action and some surprising twists!
