I am the daughter of the first female POTUS, and today is about to become the longest day of my life…

24 hours—that’s how much time I have to save my mother before terrorists assassinate her. But now my father and brother are missing, too. This goes deeper than anyone thinks. Only someone on the inside would know how to pull this off—how to make the entire First Family disappear.

I can't trust anyone, so it’s up to me to uncover the conspiracy and stop these madmen. Because little do they know, they picked the wrong person to terrorize.

My name is Sophie Washington, and I will not be a victim. No one, I repeat no one, is taking me or my family down. But the clock is ticking…

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 oth... ...more

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.

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 famil... ...more

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... ...more

When I read the blurb of T-Minus, my attention was caught. It reminded me of 24 Hours. Since I was a fan of that show, I knew that I needed to read this book. I am glad I did!! T-Minus was a fast, explosive read that I got lost in.

By Holly August 08, 2019

I love a good thriller, and I have been reading and enjoying a lot of books with presidential/political families lately, so T-Minus was a great mix of the two for me. It’s definitely like the YA version of a David Baldacci or Vince Flynn book, so if those appeal to you, I think this will as well.... ...more
