Staff Reviews


Teen spy Alex Rider has been whisked away to yet another mission: infiltrate the prestigious Point Blanc academy.  The school seems normal at first, but everything, and everyone, is a little bit off.  When Alex makes a shocking discovery, things get risky fast.  Can he make it out and complete his assignment?

Why I liked this book:

I liked this book because it’s super thrilling and suspenseful.  Although it is YA, it feels like a middle grade book, so kids that age will definitely enjoy this series!
