Tank Baby (Elodie Fontaine Mysteries Book 1)

"This was a fun read and I really enjoyed how well the author development not only the plot but the characters. Even though the story isn't very believable I'm okay with that, because I was able to suspend disbelief enough to where I could see how maybe, given the right circumstances this may be possible. The main character, Elodie felt real to me, she seemed like a very typical high school student with classes, tennis and after school clubs (there are several things I would call into question, but again, I was able to read and enjoy with no need to nit-pick) Even though at times this felt like the start of a series, which it is, the author still created an enjoyable read. There were several characters that were introduced but the author made each one unique and different enough to where I had no problems following them throughout the story. I especially liked Kelli and Margo of everyone in the story Elodie, Kelli, and Margo all felt honest to me which is what I think sells the story for me and makes want to read more."

For the first 7 years of her life, Elodie Fontaine was part of an ultra-secret psychology experiment in China. Now, at 17, she is trying to put that behind her and simply be a normal Florida teenager. She plays on her high school tennis team, is a nerd-in-good-standing in the Math and Science Club, and has come to terms with the fact that she is interested in girls rather than boys.

She is even thinking of asking a certain someone on a date when she begins getting disturbing email messages from one of the other subjects of the Chinese experiment. Then someone tries to break into her house to steal her late mother's papers about the project; but why? What value could they have?

Elodie realizes she can no longer bury the past. She must act before someone gets hurt. Together with her friends Margo and Kelli, Elodie reluctantly begins searching for answers. But to do this, she must polish off her programming skills and revisit her years in Shanghai with five Chinese girls, an unfinished experiment, and a mother she never really knew.
