Overview

Desert Dark by Sonja Stone

Hogwarts meets The Bourne Identity in this debut thriller that will drive readers mad with suspense.

Sixteen-year-old Nadia Riley is delighted to earn a spot at an elite, government-funded boarding school. Nothing sounds better than leaving behind her fraught relationship with her ex-boyfriend and moving to faraway Arizona to attend Desert Mountain Academy.  But the Academy is more than Nadia bargained for: it’s a covert CIA program training high-achieving students for the Black-Ops.

Nadia struggles to keep up in her new classes while gaining the trust of her assigned teammates. Things get worse when news leaks that there is a double agent on campus, and someone is framing Nadia. Worst of all? The double agent wants Nadia dead. Nadia is a whiz at codebreaking, but can she uncover the real traitor before it's too late?

Told from alternating points of view, including the anonymous double agent, this heartstopper is perfect for YA readers who love action, adventure, and intrigue.

About the Author

Sonja Stone collected intelligence on psychology and creative writing from Washington College, trained at Le Cordon Bleu for a cover job as a head pastry chef and completed a solo course at the same survival school where Tom Hanks prepared for Cast Away. Desert Dark is her first novel. She lives in Scottsdale, Arizona, with her family—and she is trained in jujitsu, knife throwing and fire guns.
