    Stormbreaker by Anthony Horowitz

    Stormbreaker by Anthony Horowitz

    Alex Rider, a 14 year old orphan, is suddenly informed that his only living relative, his uncle has died in a car accident. Much to Alex's surprise, later events prove that his uncle was actually a spy who worked for MI6 and was killed by international terrorists. Ensuing events require Alex to work as a spy as well.

    The story is far fetched; however, it is written well and does not claim to be anything more than it is: a fun adventure book for teenagers. Horowitz's style is much better than Malorie Blackman's (Noughts and Crosses) and certainly not patronising.

    7/10 KitKats!

    I loved this book! I read it every three months or so and it's a very fun read for teenagers.
    Shall these bones live?
