A Starr gone. A team betrayed.
You never know who your true friends are until a gun is pointed at you. One will take a bullet, and the other will pull the trigger. Starr learned that lesson the hard way.
The perfect smile. A killer attitude. General Treadwell wanted nothing more than to turn Starr Bishop into the ideal assassin, but she is far more valuable as Jessica Chamberlain, granddaughter and heir to Chamberlain Chocolates. Luckily, he is found two enthusiastic replacements. They lack Starr's intelligence, but no matter, they possess their own weapons of persuasion along with a flair for the dramatic, and that is never a bad thing.
Di, along with Christian, Frank, Ben and Coda, are determined to keep Starr safe, but the depths of betrayal crack the very foundation of the team. When Starr becomes a pawn in a game of power, money, and manipulation, Di channels her WWSD (What Would Starr Do) to rally the team. She owes her best friend that much. No... More.
"I love this book so much and this series just won't stop getting better and better!"

About†Kim Briggs

Kim Briggs
Kim Briggs once smashed into a tree while skiing. The accident led to a concussion, a cracked sternum, temporary notoriety as a sixth grader returned from the dead, and the realization that fictionalized accounts are way more interesting than just slipping on the ice.
An unhealthy obsession with conspiracy theories combined with a love of travel and happily ever afters led Kim to write her YA novel, Starr Fall, where a secret organization decides 17-year-old Starr Bishop is not only the model student, but the ideal assassin. While in hiding, Starr meets dark, moody, and dead sexy Christian Evergood. Cue the swoon worthy music. But it is not all happily ever afters for Kim. Her NA novel, And Then He, explores the dark and scary corners of the human psyche. Following a night of innocent flirting with a handsome stranger, Tiffani finds herself in the midst of a nightmare she can't escape. And Then He is available through Amazon and other major book retailers. Starr Fall released November 2016 with Inkspell Publishing, followed by Starr Lost in January 2017 and Starr Gone in June 2017. Her novella, Avalanche is part of the Valentine Kisses Anthology and released February 14, 2017.
When she is not doing something writerly, Kim can be found jumping into snowdrifts with her three kids, husband, and dog. She is careful to avoid trees.

1.    Please tell us about something about yourself.

Honestly, I don’t like to talk about myself. I’m more of a take charge, “let’s do this” kind of girl, but I’m not bossy. I’m not comfortable with small talk. It makes me anxious to sit around and chitchat at parties. I’d much rather be the person handing out punch and delivering slices of cake. Speaking of desserts, have you tried s’mores? They are to die for. I would kill for one right now. (Don’t tell Treadwell. I’d hate for him to get any ideas.)

2.    How did you handle the way your life changed? One moment, you're the perfect student, then suddenly you have unknown enemies?

In the beginning, I didn’t handle it very well. I sat around, curled up in a ball at the halfway house for three days. Then it hit me. I was done feeling sorry for myself. I was Starr Bishop and I was going to get revenge for my friends’ deaths. I dressed like a Goth and went to Club Black. That’s where I met Christian. Well, that’s where he saved me. My life was working out, my friends became my team, my family, and now, well, I’m not sure of anything anymore.

As for the enemies, I had no idea I had so many until the youth group dance. Reality hit me hard that night. Then Frank took a bullet for me. My life is in shambles.

3.    Was there ever a time when you felt helpless at the way your life has turned out? What did you do? Who was there to help you?

I’m feeling pretty helpless right now. There’s a lot of things that happen in Starr Gone. A lot of things. I can’t even mention them to you without spoiling the events, but you know what I realized? I’ve got myself, and in the end, that’s all I need. I can either be a china doll kept high up on a shelf, too fragile to touch or I can manipulate my situation and kick some ass. I’m leaning toward ass kicking.

4.    Among your friends, to whom would you entrust your very life? Why?

Frank and Di without a doubt. Frank took a bullet for me. He’d do it again if I asked him. Just to be clear, I would never ask a friend to put their life on the line to protect mine. The risks I take and the actions that follow—I accept all responsibility for the consequences.

Di would do anything for me. We grew apart for a few years, but I knew, hell, I know, that I can trust her with my life. Case in point, she didn’t tell anyone that I went to her house Saturday night after my alleged fatal car crash. Well, she did tell Christian, but he was the only one. She didn’t tell Frank that I was alive. She even went to my funeral and watched him suffer. She will always be there for me. I can’t say that for my other friends.

I haven’t known Ben and Coda for very long, but they’re so protective of Christian I feel like they would be protective of me too. I can trust them. Even if Christian changed, I know they haven’t.

5.    How was it like being the granddaughter and heir to Chamberlain Chocolates?

When I was a little girl, there would be vases of candy all over the mansion. My mom never let me eat any—she was terrified I would leave a wrapper or a chocolate stain on the wall, but I’d sneak treats when she wasn’t looking. My dad would shove handfuls into my pockets. Being heir to Chamberlain Chocolates as a five-year old was pretty fantastic. Now, it’s a burden. I don’t want it.

6.    If you had one wish, what would you wish for? Absolutely anything is possible.

Well that’s easy. I would wish that my dad wasn’t killed in the car accident. I would give anything to have my dad alive.

7.    Looking back over all that had transpired, what is the one thing you would change, if you could?

The day I showed up to take the Leadership exam is the day my life changed forever. For weeks I couldn’t get past the idea that if I skipped the test, my life would have remained the same but that’s not true—General Treadwell and the Organization would have found another way to bring me in. They are not going to rest until I become the assassin they want me to be.

But right now, I wish that I never fell for Christian. I don’t know if I can ever forgive him for what he did to me.
