9781405228190: Empty Quarter

What if the right man for the job is actually a girl? Meet MI6's new recruit. Darcie Lock is every boy's dream. Beautiful, smart ...Oh, and she's a secret agent. Stuck aboard a cruise ship filled with problem rich kids, Darcie Lock is about to embark on her next exciting adventure. But it could turn out to be a bumpy ride because the US President's daughter has a reputation for being out-of-control. In a boot camp for the elite, Darcie must keep her wits about. From Naples, via Cyprus, to Egypt she must then travel on a terrifying journey through the desert Empty Quarter. Britain's youngest intelligence officer has a lot resting on her slim shoulders. Girl on the Run is the perfect series of adventure books for girls who don't want to let boys have all the fun. Julia Golding is the award-winning author of the Cat Royal series and she has won the Waterstone's Book Prize and the Nestle Children's Book Prize.

About the Author:

Married with three children, Julia now lives in Oxford. Her first book, The Diamond of Drury Lane, won the 2006 Waterstones' Children's Book Prize and the Nestle Children's Book Prize 9-11 age category. Since then Julia has had success with both Egmont and OUP. Julia read English at Cambridge then joined the Foreign Office and served in Poland. Her work as a diplomat took her from the high point of town twinning in the Tatra Mountains to the low of inspecting the bottom of a Silesian coal mine. On leaving Poland, she exchanged diplomacy for academia and took a doctorate in the literature of the English Romantic Period at Oxford. She then joined Oxfam as a lobbyist on conflict issues, campaigning at the UN and with governments to lessen the impact of conflict on civilians living in war zones.
