Born to Run
|Author:||John M. Green|
Isabel Diaz is set to be the first woman to win the White House. But her chances plummet when a Muslim protege is accused of siphoning funds to terrorists and, seemingly unrelated, a young Australian software whiz is tossed off a London skyscraper. Then, when a TV journalist digs up a dark secret from Isabel's past, her presidential hopes shatter. With the public stunned, and only days before the vote, terrorists use the Australian's stolen software to launch a daring attack on New York City. Isabel Diaz is born to run. But can she ever win?
