The Secret of Rover follows the clever and resourceful twins Katie and David as they race across the country in their attempt to outwit an international team of insurgents who hold their parents and baby sister captive in a foreign land.

Held hostage because they invented a spy technology called Rover that can locate anyone in the world, Katie and David’s parents are in grave danger. Now, it’s up to Katie and David to rescue them. But first they must find their reclusive uncle, whom they have never met—the only person they know who can help them.

This page-turning story from a debut author with insider knowledge of Washington is fun, suspenseful, and convincingly real.

Now David headed down the nearest of these aisles, slipping between their

He had no idea what Katie was doing, pretending to be Susan and calling those creeps Mom and Dad. Katie chimed right in. “We both were,” she pleaded. “We didn’t know, though. We didn’t know it would turn out like this! We just . . . We just wanted to know if it would work.” She cast down

They were sitting on upholstered seats and except for their brief stop in the police station, it had been forever since they’d sat on anything but metal or concrete or dirt. And then, to be able to look out the windows and see the landscape fly by as they were whisked along at sixty miles per hour . . . It was only a regular taxi, but it felt like a rolling hotel as it dipped and swerved through the hilly country. Both of them knew

I don’t want to—I won’t lie to you. We—we’ve reached the end.” Her face was full of compassion and shame. “The recording?” asked Alex anxiously. He was now by their sides. Alicia shook her head. “It’s just not working. It’s—I’m sorry, Alex.” “So you’re giving up?” asked Katie in disbelief. “We’ve tried it
