Lexi Allen is, in many ways, the All-American high school girl, with one exception - Lexi's father and the Secretary of Defense are cousins and the best of friends. This places Lexi outside the usual circle of Secret Service protection but directly in the cross hairs of Yousef Ahmed, the operations leader of the Moroccan Islamic Combatant Group. Trained by al-Qaeda, Yousef has long been searching for a means to extract his soldiers from the covert prisons operated by the United States. After months of planning, including the insertion of covert operatives into Lexi's hometown and school, his three-pronged plan to take Lexi for prisoner exchange, strike a blow to Christianity, and terrorize the soft underbelly of America, has finally come to fruition. Unbeknownst to Yousef's six-man team, Lexi is being marked by young Secret Service trainee, Taylor Camino. Under the cover name Allison, the agent has been assimilated into Lexi's Catholic high school to hone her covert surveillance skills. Alone, the agent stands little chance against a well-trained assault team, but fate is on her side. Army Ranger and school alum Dax McLanahan has returned to visit and give a military recruiting pitch. Together, the pair of unsuspecting heroes slows the attack, but they'll need more firepower to rescue Lexi from Yousef's clutches and deny him the chance to rip apart the United States from the inside out.
