The Cruelty; Scott Bergstrom

The Cruelty (The Cruelty, #1)The Cruelty by Scott Bergstrom
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Quick review: The Gallagher Girls meet Boy Nobody meets You Don't Know My Name. The problem is that rather than the careful training that all of the leads in those books get, here we have Gwendolyn, skilled at languages but otherwise "normal". Her life with her State Department-based father consists of moving, moving, moving so she doesn't have many friends (which doesn't feel completely real: wouldn't she have made friends at each of her schools? and, in this day and age, kept in touch?). Then her father goes missing and she goes to find him, relying on those language skills and a few weeks martial arts training? Suspension of disbelief required.
