Ally Carter’s novel All Fall Down follows Grace Blakely as she solves the mystery of her mother’s murder. The only problem is, Grace is the only one who believes that her mother was murdered. Everyone else in Embassy Row seems to think that she was killed an accidental fire. But Grace knows better. As the American ambassador’s granddaughter, Grace begins to discover the deep secrets hidden in Embassy Row, a street of embassies in the country of Adria. All Fall Down has an interesting story line and twist at the end, but the story goes a little slow and there is a lot of filler in the book.
Although this book was intriguing, at some points I felt as though there was more filler than story line. The plot was creative and thought-provoking, and I would liked it if more of the book was actually about the story.
Other than that, I did enjoy All Fall Down. The novel has many good qualities, and I would recommend it to people from the age 12-16.
