A terror with no answer needs a girl with no limits.
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…

T-Minus is very much like a YA version of the television show 24. Sophie, the daughter of the first female president, has a similar time frame to try to save her mother and the country–and faces at least as many twists, turns, and dangers as Jack Bauer did. Fortunately, we can read it in a day or two and don’t have to wait an entire television season to figure out what will happen. 😉
On the whole I enjoyed the book–it definitely keeps you on the edge of your seat!–though there were times that it felt like a bit too much was happening. At times the way-too-frequent flashbacks were the only respite readers got from the action, and it was draining. An excess of setbacks and tragedies (one in particular; yikes) that the characters don’t have time to deal with lost their impact somewhat when things just go on as normal afterward. (Obviously, life does go on afterward; but here it seemed a bit extreme given the circumstances.)
I’ll be keeping an eye out for more from this author!
Rating: 4 stars / B-

About the author:
Things you should know about me: I write novels! Some have won awards. Others have been bestsellers. Under Shannon Greenland (my real name) you’ll find spies, adventure, and romantic suspense. Under S. E. Green (my pen) you’ll find dark and gritty fiction about serial killers, cults, secret societies that do bad things, and whatever else my twisted brain deems to dream up. I’m on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook. I also have a website and a very non-annoying newsletter where you can keep up to date with new releases, free stuff, and my mild ramblings about my travels. I have a very old and grouchy dog. But I love him. My humor runs dark and so don’t be offended by something off I might say. I mean no harm. I live in a small Florida beach town, but I’m most often found exploring the world. I eat entirely too many chips. I also love math!
