Customer reviews

by Nicole McGovern
How do you get boys to read? The answer is in this gritty series by Robert Muchamore. Exploring all of the issues kids go through from the awkward age of 10yrs through to 17 cleverly disguised through the simplistic, egotistic and slightly arrogant eyes of James Adams. Regardless, this series is a refreshing read for all ages. Its punchy, gritty and delivers a flying kick to the stomach spinning you back into your childhood. You will be wishing you were an orphan CHERUB agent, completing basic training, learning russian and earning the ultimate recognition for performance - your black shirt. Suddenly an orphan and facing eight years in the foster care system, James' life is turned upside down. Until he wakes up, in an orange shirt, groggy confused and realises he's been abducted- but could this be an opportunity of a lifetime?show more
