9781480566811: The Eighth Guardian (Annum Guard)

Amanda Obermann. Code name Iris. It’s Testing Day. The day that comes without warning, the day when all juniors and seniors at The Peel Academy undergo a series of intense physical and psychological tests to see if they’re ready to graduate and become government operatives. Amanda and her boyfriend Abe are top students, and they’ve just endured thirty-six hours of testing. But they’re juniors and don’t expect to graduate. That’ll happen next year, when they plan to join the CIA—together. But when the graduates are announced, the results are shocking. Amanda has been chosen—the first junior in decades. And she receives the opportunity of a lifetime: to join a secret government organization called the Annum Guard and travel through time to change the course of history. But in order to become the Eighth Guardian in this exclusive group, Amanda must say good-bye to everything—her name, her family, and even Abe—forever. Who is really behind the Annum Guard? And can she trust them with her life?

About the Author:

Meredith McCardle attended the University of Florida and received degrees in magazine journalism and theatre. She later studied law, graduating from Boston University School of Law. Meredith spent seven years working as a commercial litigator by day and writing by night before committing to writing full-time. This is her first novel. She lives in South Florida with her family, where she is now working on the next book in the Annum Guard series. Learn more: www.meredithmccardle.com.

From School Library Journal:

Gr 7 Up—Action, conspiracy, love, and war are just a few of the fascinating elements in McCardle's debut. Amanda Obermann's mother is bipolar, her dad's death is a mystery, and she's a junior at Peel Academy, most of whose graduates go on to work for the FBI or CIA. Amanda, along with her classmates, is a genius. She's already looking forward to working for the CIA with her long-term boyfriend, Abe, when they graduate next year, until her name is called at the graduate ceremony...as a junior! Instantly Amanda's world comes crashing down. She is taken against her will to a top-secret government agency and is forced to take tests to be part of Annum Guard. Failure in Annum Guard results in life in prison. She's stuck. She has to say goodbye to everything: her name (she's now Iris), her family, Abe. The more she learns about Annum Guard, the further she wants to run. Narrator Amy McFadden flawlessly articulates the action throughout the story, giving life to all the characters. Listeners will eagerly be awaiting a sequel. Slight cursing will make this title appropriate for slightly older tweens, while some ethical themes make it ideal for discussion groups. Give this title to fans of time travel and historical fiction. A first-rate listen.—Amanda Schiavulli, Finger Lakes Library System, NY
