Wheels Off The World
Lots of things are worse than death for sixteen year-old "Alice Reaver." Years of living in hiding with her ex-assassin father after her mother’s brutal murder is one of them. But in a new town and a new school, she’s learning what it means to have friends, a boyfriend - a life. Whether they can all make it out of high school alive is another matter entirely. More
Alice Reaver is not her real name but that's who she'll have to be at yet another new school in another new town that her fugitive father has dumped them in for her safety. It's been like this for eight long years, ever since they came home to find her mother brutally murdered. It was probably a message to her father, an almost reformed assassin. Maybe it was payback from the shady, quasi-government jokers he used to work for and betrayed or from one of his victims' families. Whatever.
After spending half her life lying to everyone she meets, discarding identities and hair colors like dirty socks, and learning how to kill in dozens of different ways, "Alice" is done. She's made some friends at Oxford High - her first ever. One of them needs the help of her lethal skill sets to stay alive. And maybe she's met a boy - or two.
Her father can let her have a life or he can kill her for breaking curfew and their survival protocol. But she's not leaving without a fight that will test everything he's ever taught her.
