Fifteen-year-old Megan "Cause Queen" Caliente is president of the political science club and likes to make her voice heard. But after the protest she organized on the Las Vegas Strip takes an unexpected turn, she is suddenly wishing she could disappear. When her mother comes to pick her up at the police station, Megan learns, to her horror, that her whole life has been a lie. Her father is a convicted terrorist, responsible for the deaths of more than two hundred people, and her mother has been living under an assumed name for fifteen years. Megan's mom is taken away in handcuffs, and Megan is expected to return to her regular life under the supervision of her aunt. But everyone, students and teachers alike, is treating her differently now. Cruel accusations and gossip, as well as persistent reporters, follow her everywhere. Worried that she is destined to follow in her father's footsteps, Megan, with the help of the charismatic Matt Mendez, the only person at school who hasn't turned on her, decides to track down the father she thought was dead and get some answers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Must for Today's Reader I read this timely book in one sitting. Tackling a sensitive topic, Langston writes of a teen learning about the impact of choices, judgments and stereotyping - all with smooth writing anyone can enjoy. This highly experienced, multi-published author strikes home again with a story that sucks you in and still holds you long after you close the book. Langston's skill at creating main characters who are sympathetic, real, and down-to-earth is spot on - Megan Caliente is a character I hope to see in future stories. She's real, her journey feels like it could happen to anyone, and she comes out on top learning from her choices and from those of loved ones. I highly recommend this read.
