The Cruelty Book Tour
Gwendolyn Bloom is seventeen. She lost her mother when she was young. It is only her father and her. Gwen is very bright. She can speak in five different languages. This is thanks to her father's job at the Bureau of Diplomatic Security. However there is also a down side to Gwen's father's job and that is danger as Gwen learns. Two agents come to the door to inform Gwen that her father is missing. Gwen is not the type of person to just sit back and wait. She springs into action racing to Paris to find her father.
I really like Gwen. She is a no-nonsense type of gal. She is very independent and someone that will be a real force to watch out for as she gets older. This book is a quick read due to all the action and good characters. I liked that this book was told in the first person. It brought me in more into the story and helped bring me closer to Gwen. The love she has for her father is very clear as she fights hard to find him. She takes on some of the most dangerous people. You better grab your passport as you go jet setting all over the world from New York, to Paris, Berlin, and Prague.
