Eleven is much too young to learn the reality of prison hierarchy and the long tentacles of murderous gangs. But that is just what Polly must face if she is to survive in a kill-or-be-killed world. She has her best friend bear with her for comfort and companionship, but her father thinks she is a little nutty to treat a stuffed animal like he is alive. Polly’s father Nate has just been released from prison after five years. A run in with the fierce leader of the Aryan Brotherhood has set in motion a greenlight being placed on the lives of Polly, his ex-wife and himself. Nate’s sole mission is to keep Polly safe and alive until he finds a way to get the greenlight lifted. But Nate doesn’t anticipate the strength and fight that is in his daughter or the love that begins to bloom in his heart for this little girl.

The escalation of the bond between father and daughter will leave you gasping. There is no greater love than that of a parent and this is a perfect example. On the other hand, I question how a parent can put his child in such danger even though he is trying to protect her. At times I was rooting for the Nate and Polly team; while at others I was cringing at the situations they were in. A great read and a well written book by Jordan Harper.

My rating is 4 stars out of 5. She Rides Shotgun is a 2017 Simon & Schuster Publication. Thank you to Nancy at Bestsellerworld for a copy of the book for an honest review.
