Athena Academy graduate and Marine Corps diver Jessica Whitaker is on a mission to locate a 3-year-old shipwreck and bring back a laptop lost when the ship went down. Aiding in her search is marine salvager and computer expert Zach Holiday. But nothing is ever easy in the elite world of the Athenas, and Jess and Zach are soon the target of Athena enemy Arachne's forces, who are also after the laptop. Sharon McClellan's Breathless (4.5) is the perfect next step in the Athena Force series. McClellan makes her characters realistic and exciting at the same time, and her story is incredibly gripping.
