'A Joy to Read', Independent (I agree): Liar & Spy by Rebecca Stead

Twelve-year-old Georges moves into a new apartment and discovers a boy his age: Safer, a secret spy. Soon Georges is tracking down the mysterious Mr. X with all kinds of 'missions' including waking up at midnight and sneaking into his room. But once it gets too much for young kids Georges starts thinking; what is a game, and what is a lie???

This book is absolutely great. I was in the library and my Mum picked it up. *Sigh*. Did not look like something I wanted to read but reluctantly took it off her. Then when I had an 'Oh, I have nothing to read night' I picked it up. And I was stuck to it, literally. I probably had super-glue on my hands because I was reading, reading, reading until I'd  finished every last page. It was brilliant. There was a twist near the end which kept my jaw open for several hours (seconds)! I guessed that might happen once I got near it but I still couldn't believe.

Liar & Spy is perfect for boys and girls aged 9-11 who love exciting and unexpected twists in the book and people who loves spies and would like to be one.


Thank you for the comment! XD
Just keep it clean, that's all I ask!
