A terror with no answer needs a girl with no limits.
I am the daughter of the first female POTUS, and today is about to become the longest day of my life…
24 hours—that’s how much time I have to save my mother before terrorists assassinate her. But now my father and brother are missing, too. This goes deeper than anyone thinks. Only someone on the inside would know how to pull this off—how to make the entire First Family disappear.
I can’t trust anyone, so it’s up to me to uncover the conspiracy and stop these madmen. Because little do they know, they picked the wrong person to terrorize.
My name is Sophie Washington, and I will not be a victim. No one, I repeat no one, is taking me or my family down. But the clock is ticking…

Things you should know about me: I write novels! Some have won awards. Others have been bestsellers. Under Shannon Greenland (my real name) you’ll find spies, adventure, and romantic suspense. Under S. E. Green (my pen) you’ll find dark and gritty fiction about serial killers, cults, secret societies that do bad things, and whatever else my twisted brain deems to dream up. I’m on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook. I also have a website and a very non-annoying newsletter where you can keep up to date with new releases, free stuff, and my mild ramblings about my travels. I have a very old and grouchy dog. But I love him. My humor runs dark and so don’t be offended by something off I might say. I mean no harm. I live in a small Florida beach town, but I’m most often found exploring the world. I eat entirely too many chips. I also love math!
La-la-la-la-la-laT-Minus by Shannon Greenland
When I read the blurb of T-Minus, my attention was caught. It reminded me of 24 Hours. Since I was a fan of that show, I knew that I needed to read this book. I am glad I did!! T-Minus was a fast, explosive read that I got lost in.
T-Minus is the story of Sophie Washington. Sophie is the teenage daughter of the first POTUS. One night, she is woken up by her Secret Service agent with the news that the President and her family are the targets of a domestic terrorist attack. They are to be separated and taken to different safe houses. Sophie finds out that this terrorist cell has people who infiltrated the White House. Not trusting anyone, Sophie turns to the only other people she can trust, her friends from a CIA training camp for teens. Sophie has 24 hours to find out who is behind the attacks on her family and bring them down. But that is easier said than done when she doesn’t know who to trust.
I couldn’t believe the fast pace of T-Minus. Right from page one, the book was go-go-go. The author did a fantastic job of keeping the speed of the plotline as fast as she did. But, there were times when it faltered. Mainly during the flashbacks. If the author placed the flashback at the beginning of the book (like headers) or even had dedicated mini-chapters to them, I would have been fine. But to have a scene interrupted by Sophie remembering various people, drove me nuts.
I liked Sophie. I liked that the author showed how stifling being a child of the POTUS could be. I couldn’t imagine having Secret Service tailing me everywhere. I also thought that she was strong: mentally and physically. I would have lost it after what happened to her brother. But she didn’t allow herself time to dwell on it. Instead, she turned all her feelings into anger, and that powered her through the rest of the book. I also liked that she was also a normal teenage girl. She had crushes, fought with her parents, and did crazy teenage stuff with her friends. Of course, all that was told in flashbacks but still. It was nice to see glimpses of what she could be like during the book.
The mystery of who was behind the terrorist attacks was wonderfully written. The author was able to make me think it was several people, including Sophie’s father. There were several twists in the plot that took me by surprise. But it was the one at the end that made my jaw drop. I couldn’t believe who it was.
The end of T-Minus was unbelievable. The author wrapped up all the plotlines except one, which makes me wonder if there will be a book 2.
I would give T-Minus an Older Teen rating. There is no sex. There is language. There is violence. I would recommend that no one under the age of 16 read this book.
I would reread T-Minus. I would recommend it to family and friends.
