My Review

Grace has just figured out what really happened when her mother died. Obviously, Grace has some things to deal with and some PTSD. Anyone in her situation would. Now that she knows the truth about what happened to her mom, she is looking for the why.

I understand Grace’s need for answers. She wants to know what the Adrian Prime Minister had against her mother. She wants to know why Ms Chancellor is lying and no one is telling her the truth.

I did like the introduction of Grace’s brother, Jamie, even if I did find him a bit condescending at times. I get that he is just trying to help Grace, but come on and just tell her the truth.

I definitely missed Noah and Rosie in this novel. They were such an important part of All Fall Down and they just seemed to fade into the background. Alexei was in the book more but he just got a bit annoying. I wanted him to stop being so overprotective of Grace and just tell her the truth.

See How They Run definitely kept me intrigued. I wanted to learn the truth of everything as much as Grace did. And then there was that ending… That was so NOT OKAY. Please get me Take the Key and Lock Her Up ASAP!
