Maddie thought she and Logan would be friends forever. But when your dad is a Secret Service agent and your best friend is the president's son, sometimes life has other plans. Before she knows it, Maddie's dad is dragging her to a cabin in the middle of the Alaskan wilderness.

No phone.No Iinternet.And not a single word from Logan.

Maddie tells herself it's okay. After all, she's the most popular girl for twenty miles in any direction. She has wood to cut and weapons to bedazzle. Her life is full.Until Logan shows up six years later . . .And Maddie wants to kill him.

But before that can happen, an assailant appears out of nowhere, knocking Maddie off a cliff and dragging Logan to some unknown fate. Maddie knows she could turn back- and get help. But the weather is turning and the terrain will only get more treacherous, the animals more deadly.

Maddie still really wants to kill Logan. But she has to save him first.

My Thoughts:

I totally devoured this book in one sitting. It was so much fun! Honestly, I think this is my new favorite Ally Carter book. And that’s saying a lot because I love all her books so much!

I love that the book starts with 10-year-old Maddie and Logan. They’re sweet and innocent and just so adorable. AND THEN THIS TERRIBLE THING HAPPENS AND EVERYTHING CHANGES. Yup. I am 100% here for that.

The majority of the book takes place years later. Maddie has been living alone with her dad in the Alaskan wilderness. Logan’s antics get him sent from the White House to stay with Maddie and her dad while things cool down. Of course things do not go as planned and adventure ensues. This is the kind of story Ally Carter excels at!

Per usual with Ally’s books, I absolutely adore the main character. Maddie is smart and interesting and her life has taken a very drastic turn. Seeing how she deals with everything, especially the sudden reappearance of her onetime BFF, kept me engaged and wanting to know more. Plus, she is fierce! The kind of girl who is ready to take on anything.

Not If I Save You First is a fun, fast paced adventure full of twists that’ll keep you turning the pages. Highly recommend.
