Moving Target is a Da Vinci Code style story written for young adults. For years Cassie and her art historian father have moved all over the world to whatever place her father's work took them. Suddenly, Cassie's father, in a panic, takes her out of school. He begins to tell her an unbelievable story about herself and her life when he is shot. Knowing she doesn't have much time, Cassie seeks out the man her father told her to find, a monk in an ancient monastery. There she learns that her life is linked to an ancient spear that can control destinies. Cassie then goes on the run with her best friend, Simone, and Asher, her protector, to find the ancient spear. This book is only the beginning of the story, so I expect there will be more books to follow. This story was very enjoyable with lots of action and some major twists that completely change the direction of the story. Lots of fun - can't wait for the next installment.

Great book but weird ending

This is a very quick read with almost non-stop action. It actually reminds me of a kids version of The DaVinci Code, with secret societies, Roman adventures, and a few puzzling riddles (though not the religious focus of the adult book). If you're in the mood for an action packed mystery with a great main character, this is a great choice.
