Avery West is used to being the new girl. Her mom works for the military and every time she gets new orders, they move across the country. Sometimes they stay somewhere for a few months, sometimes it’s a few weeks before they’re on the move again. Which means Avery isn’t really a fan of getting close, letting people in, or making much more than surface friendships. People to talk to in class and sit with at lunch? Cool. Best friends and boyfriends? No way.
Which is why she has to tell herself that it doesn’t matter if new guy Jack is hanging on to a photo of her, she absolutely can’t let herself get close enough to a guy to be his girlfriend.
Because what other reason would a normal high school guy have for carrying around a girl’s picture other than liking her?
When Jack asks Avery to prom, she decides to live life wild for a night and say yes. It’s just a date… and Jack is super gorgeous. And nice. And has a crazy awesome compass tattoo.
But when Jack reveals that Avery (and her mother) are not who she always thought they were, her world is blown wide open. Turns out prom was just a ploy – Jack works for a secret society that runs the world, and they believe Avery is the key to an ancient prophecy that could give them unlimited power. When another boy, Stellan, turns up at prom and promises to take Avery to meet her father for the first time in her life, how could she refuse? But it’s not as easy as it sounds… and before long, Avery is caught up in an international chase across the Atlantic as she follows clues, flees assassins, frantically tries to untangle a centuries-old web of lies and figure out who is on her side.
If you’re a fan of Ally Carter’s Gallagher Girls and Heist Society series of books, love a good international man of mystery (or two), or have been looking for a Da Vinci Code meets James Bond sort of a read, look no further! From the Louvre to the Eiffel tower and all the way to the Hagia Sophia in Istanbul, The Conspiracy of Us glitters with high fashion, stilettos (both sorts), high speed chases, celebrities, exclusive clubs, ball gowns, a little murder in Prada, and, of course, two mysterious boys with tattoos and gorgeous eyes. Don’t miss it!
