Goodreads Description:

In this exciting and action-packed adventure by an award-winning author, a young girl discovers her secret ancient bloodline. The fate of her family, and the world, may rest in her hands . . .

Cassie Arroyo, an American studying in Rome, has her world ripped apart when someone tries to kill her father, an art history professor at an Italian university. Is she their next target?

Cassie sets out to uncover what is happening, only to learn that she is a member of an ancient bloodline that enables her to use the Spear of Destiny--a legendary object that can alter the future. Now running from a secret organization intent on killing those from her bloodline, Cassie must--with the help of some friends--decipher the clues that will lead her to the Spear.

Christina Diaz Gonzalez has created a fast-paced thrill-ride of a book, rich with riddles and myth, that young readers will not want to put down.

Tristan's Review:

Thank you so much to Scholastic for an ARC for review. This in no way affected my opinion in my review.


Tristan loved the fast pace of Moving Target and finished it in under two days. His only complaint was how violent the story was right from the beginning. He gave Moving Target 3 Out of 5 Stars




About this author







Christina grew up in a small Southern town in the Florida panhandle, but she's always been in touch with her Cuban heritage. She loves having breakfast with pan cubano and Southern style grits-- the best of both worlds!

She is the author of the award-winning novels, The Red Umbrella and A Thunderous Whisper (both published by Knopf) and the upcoming action-adventure novel MOVING TARGET (Scholastic).

Disclaimer: As an author, it feels slightly awkward to give other writers less than 5 stars, so that's all you'll see here.
