REVIEW: Stormbreaker by Anthony Horowitz


Alex Rider thought his Uncle and guardian was a banker who traveled a lot. Little did he know that after his Uncle is killed he learns that he was really an MI6 spy. After finding out the truth Alex is recruited by MI6 to complete his Uncle's final mission. Alex suddenly finds himself caught in a deadly game of cat and mouse, with no way out.

Although I technically wouldn't classify this book as Young Adult fiction I thought I would review it anyways. My brother is 13 and going into grade 8 where they have to start writing book reports and what not. Knowing that my brother is a jocky little boy I knew the likelihood of him completing one of these successfully would be slim. So... I went on a hunt for a book that I thought he might enjoy. Little did I know that after reading this book on a whim I would enjoy quite a bit too. The novel is fool of twists and suspense not to mention cool spy gadgets. There was even a movie made based on it. Overall, I enjoyed this book and would especially recommend it to slightly younger readers.
