Seventeen-year-old Payton Morros is a killer. Adopted as a child, and groomed into the profession by her new parents, she longs for a normal life. But lethal assassins at the top of their game can’t exactly quit their day job. Her only escape from her predetermined destiny is spending time with her best friend Conner, if only for a little while.
When Payton is sent to Chile for an assignment, she discovers a devastating truth that challenges everything she knows about herself and her family. Abandoning the mission, and on the run, she must unravel the secrets of her past before she loses all sense of herself. Or worse, before she jeopardizes everyone she cares about.
And because it's fantabulous and Mel and I love it, here is the trailer for Gravel Ghost!

Gravel Ghost is the first book in the series of the same name by Charyse Allan. The story is about Payton Morros, a young girl who has been trained since she was small to be an assassin by her adopted parents. She's great at what she does, but like most teenage girls, she is aching to break the reins and have a normal life with her friend (*smirkysmirk*) Conner... But on a mission to Chile, she discovers that will not be so easy, and now she's on the run to save herself and those she cares most for.
...I FACKING ADORE THIS BOOK. Seriously, there is no way I'm going to get through this review without gushing. I love thrillers in general, but this one has got to be the best YA thrilled I've read--yes, even better than Cold Fury (and you can see here how much I love that one)--and that's saying a lot.
This book is so intricately done with such wonderful characters, I find I have no inkling of a clue as to how I can gush further without totally spoiling it. All I can really say is it is a FANTASTIC read and you will be doing a disservice to yourselves if you don't read it, mmkay??? So...buy it...buy it right now now now.
