Zero Day by Jan Gangsei

Adele disappeared from her parent's home at age 8.  Now she has escaped from her captors and is returned home.  Her home now, however, is the White House because her father has become president in the eight years since she disappeared.  Most people are happy to have her back including her former best friend Darrow, but some are suspicious of Addie and whether or not she is just an innocent victim.  Addie's own actions are cause for suspicion as she slowly reveals where she has been and what she has been doing.

This is a great idea for a story but the execution falls flat.  It seemed there were many opportunities for excitement but the writing didn't capitalize on those opportunities.  Could've been better.
