It is a fantastic book which grips me from it. It is a must read book which describes James, a spy for the Britain, daily life. The connection between him and his sister was an astonishing relationship. Its good.
I recommend this book for boys that love war! It was a great read.
James Choke is a young kid who doesn’t seem to go anywhere in life. His mother is drastically obese, his father-in-law is a drunk, abusive jerk, and his half-sister, Lauren, is the only one who cares about him. But after his mom drinks too much while taking medication, she dies. Lauren is then put into the care of her father-in-law, leaving James in an orphanage.While James was in the orphanage, he was recruited into a spy agency known as CHERUB, an organization so secret that nobody even knows what CHERUB stands for. First James is put through a series of tests that involved a simple written test and cutting the head off of a chicken. James has done well on all of his tests but there is one thing holding him back from starting his training, he doesn’t know how to swim. He is then put in swimming lessons to learn how to swim. After he gets the swimming lessons done, he is faced with a grueling 100 day training session. His partner is his only chance of survival, only knowing the next mission was going to be the most dangerous one either of them have had to face.Cherub Mission 1: The Recruit is a deep and compelling story. You always feel like you’re watching the action unfold right before your eyes. I tore through these pages, enjoying every second of the experience. The characters are well-thought out, the storyline is incredible, and the depth they put into this story was breath-taking. Trust me when I say this is the best book I have ever read.For a rating on this book, I would definitely give it 5 out of 5 stars. Just the storyline was enough to pull me into the book and the characters just pulled me in further. I would recommend this book to all young adults who enjoy an emotional, action-packed story.
this is a tense book and it is good
