Blindsided (Transparent #2) - Natalie Whipple

Three months after Fiona has escaped from her father's crime syndicate, all seems well in her tiny town of Madison, Arizona. She and Seth are happy together - apart from the teensy fact that Fiona is jealous that Seth can see through her invisibility - and her family and friends are safe. But when the local syndicate and even the army show up, it's clear there's more going on in the town than she could have ever imagined. It seems like these huge powers are interested in the old Radiasure factory - could they be reproducing the infamous drug that caused mutations? - and everyone suspects Fiona of knowing more than she should. As Fiona and her friends try to cover their tracks, they discover that they do have some dangerous knowledge. Though at first determined to stop anyone from remaking Radiasure, Fiona learns a secret that could change everything, including her invisibility. Torn between her own desires and the greater good, Fiona might be too blindsided to see the real villain coming.
I will keep this review as short as possible because there is no way I won't give out a spoiler.
I was so excited to read this book I had to put it somewhere I couldn't get at it. I wanted to savour re-visiting Fiona, her friends and family in the small town of Madison Arizona. It's been three months since we last met up with them all and I just could not wait to see in what direction author Natalie Whipple would go with book two as there were so many possibilities from the end of the first.
I absolutely loved it. From page one you are straight away submerged into a dangerous world. The plot is immense and there are so many twists and turns that you end up having to put down the book to get your head straight and concentrate on what you're reading and not the conspiracy theory that's going on in your mind.
Yet again the writing is super, descriptions have you there, and the characters are as real as can be. It is honestly a book no a series worth taking a look at.
A story about the importance of family and friends and how much you would put yourself through to keep them safe.
