I just finished reading Greg Logsted's Alibi Junior High in a single sitting. Thankfully the family had other things to do for a while because the author nailed me to the pages with his premise and with the fantastic pacing of this young adult novel. I wasn't tempted even once to get up and go do something else. Logsted starts his spell on page one, and readers will have to stay with him to see what ultimately happens to Cody Saron, the thirteen year old professional spy.

Admittedly, I had to check my willing suspension of disbelief at the door. But I do the same thing for any fantasy novel I read. Thirteen year old spies? Then I thought about Uganda and other places around the globe where children are given assault rifles and get drafted into military maneuvers.

I love the Alex Rider series as well, but those books seem like a fantasy story compared to Logsted's sharp-edged view of the espionage world. Cody's story could actually happen the way the author describes it, and I felt a little uncomfortable with that as much as it excited me.

For all of Cody's life, he's faced constant danger and the threat of death. He's comfortable with those things. It's the idea of junior high and all the new social pecking order stuff he has to learn that really throws him off his stride. I enjoyed the confrontations he has with his teachers and the principal a lot, and ended up laughing out loud at his one-liners and sarcastic wit. This is a hero that smart, aggressive pre-teens can root for. Better than that, they can totally understand Cody's dislike of the public school system.

I do, however, wish Cody would have found that one teacher that truly "got" him. Most junior high kids do.

I am 13 years old and is absolutely loved this book. I was so sad when I found out that there wasn't a second book. I don't want to spoil the story, but if your a kid between the ages of 12 and 14 and you like crime/war books, this is the book for you! Lots of mystery and trouble. This one is amazing.

Format: Hardcover
Thirteen-year-old Cody doesn't know much about normal life. He's been living and traveling all over the world with his father, who works for the CIA. Together, they've formed a research team responsible for tracking the bad guys.

But, someone's caught on. An explosion outside a café in France, where they barely escape with their lives, leaves the team shaken.

Cody's father puts him on a plane and tells him to become invisible until he reaches his destination. Cody's headed somewhere safe from danger: his aunt's house. He's infiltrating junior high, where he must assume his most challenging role ever - himself. Cody's used to being home-schooled by his father, wearing suits every day, and defending himself against anyone who looks at him funny.

Now he's dealing with school rules, clothes that are cool but don't feel right, and bullies plaguing him and his friend. Cody has a feeling that somewhere, someone is watching him. At night he takes sweeps of the house, only to find that his new friend's brother, who just came home from the war, does the same thing. Together, they keep tabs on the area.

Is Cody paranoid? Has he finally found a place to call home or will someone make the family connection and come after him?

Greg Logsted writes a quirky but lovable character who just wants to be himself. I liked the witty smart aleck personality of Cody. This book takes a spy and places him in the normal world - without a mission, making this a unique tale. As a sucker for spy novels, I hope this isn't the last I read about Cody Saron.

Some people compare this book to the young james bond and the cherubs. This is actually far off to what this book actually is. I will admit is a gripping story that kept me reading from the very beginning. I read it in about 4 hours on a day off. It gave me a few good laughs.

Not to give any specifics this book is about a boy spy who now has to go to an ordinary school. Now you can imagine what happens after that. I would recommend this book for boy from 9 years old to about 15 years old.

I recommend this book to a fourth grade teacher to add to her reading list of books. She agreed with me saying that the boys in her class would enjoy it. It has received some positive reviews from the students there as well.
