What middle grade reader could not love a teenage James Bond? Stormbreaker introduces Alex Rider, who is recruited to be a spy after his uncle and guardian is killed. To Alex's surprise, his uncle was a spy and just about to bring down a powerful group of business men who are going to use schools to spread their evil. Complete with super cool spy gadgets and tools, Alex is sent undercover to one of the schools to find out what the Business group is up to. Luckily, Anthony Horowitz does not take the story too seriously because it is pretty implausible, but it is so much fun, no reader is going to complain. Stormbreaker is a story with no serious themes, historical connections, or insight, just lots of excitement and humor. Luckily, there are several sequels to to keep readers entertained for a long while.

My 11 year old son asked me to bring back Alex Rider books when I was visiting Powell's Books for the first time. We live in the east, and he was having trouble finding the books at our library. They're just that popular! In 2 1/2 weeks he read the first seven books in the Alex Rider series; that's nearly 2,400 pgs. I guess you could say he's hooked!
Alex uses all sorts of gadgets, and his own version of problem solving to get himself out of one dangerous situation after another. Vinny says, "just a minute Mom, we're busy saving the world," so often when I am trying to get his attention. He just can't put these books down. Be prepared to be reading lots of great spy stories when you start with Stormbreaker!
