Welcome to my stop on the Untraceable Blog Tour
Untraceable is out TOMORROW!! 11/29/11
16 year old Grace was reared in the wilderness. Her first pet was a bear named Simon. Her first potty, an oak tree. And, her first swing, a forest vine. Grace has lived in the Smokies her whole life, patrolling with her forest ranger father who taught her everything he knew about wildlife, tracking, and wilderness survival. But when Grace's dad goes missing on a routine patrol, unlike everyone in her sleepy mountain town, she refuses to believe he’s dead. When a Cheetos bag and stolen government file materialize, Grace is convinced she’s one step closer to proving all the non-believers wrong.
Then one day while out tracking clues, Grace is rescued from imminent danger by Mo, a hot guy with an intoxicating accent, that’s definitely not from her neck of the woods, and a secret. Grace has never felt a connection like this before, certainly not with her ex-boyfriend, the adoring, but decidedly unrugged Wyn.
Now with renewed confidence, Grace travels deeper into the wilderness that has always been her refuge only to learn that her father's disappearance is not a mere coincidence. Soon she’s enmeshed in a web of conspiracy, deception, and murder. And it’s going to take a lot more than a compass and a motorcycle (named Lucifer) for this kick-butting heroine to emerge from an epidemic that’s spreading like wild fire, threatening everything and everyone she’s ever loved.
Untraceable is a contemporary wilderness thriller for young adults.

Can I just say this book left me going O.M.GAHH! Where to start? Untraceable is a non-stop thrilling ride! You have mystery, blurred lines of who is good and who is bad, animals, totally guy hotness*with accent* ...You have a steamy love triangle and one Kick-Butt, do things for herself, strong willed girl that is Grace.
Grace is a girl after my own heart! I grew up in both the North Carolina and Tennessee mountains *TN now* and she is everything I was/still am. She is a very strong girl and does things that are RIGHT be damned the consequences because she is in the moment girl. I traipsed around in the woods constantly and love, love, yes LOVE all the wonderful details about Grace' surroundings.
All the characters are very well rounded and you are constantly changing your mind about them all. I mentioned guy hotness....MO is just yummy and very well written. The topics in the book will also make you think and I love that.
I am literally drooling *or foaming* at the mouth to get the second book! There are unanswered questions I have and it was just an all around Wicked ride! Make sure you GET YOUR COPY!!
