The explosive new thriller for fans of Jason Bourne, Robert Muchamore and Michael Grant, previously published under the title Boy Nobody.

Boy Nobody is the perennial new kid in school, the one few notice and nobody thinks much about. He shows up in a new high school, in a new town, under a new name, makes few friends and doesn't stay long. Just long enough for someone in his new friend's family to die -- of "natural causes." Mission accomplished, Boy Nobody disappears, and moves on to the next target.

When Boy Nobody was just eleven, he discovered his own parents had died of not-so-natural causes. He soon found himself under the control of The Program, a shadowy government organization that uses brainwashed kids as counter-espionage operatives. But somewhere, deep inside Boy Nobody, is somebody: the boy he once was, the boy who wants normal things (like a real home, his parents back), a boy who wants out. And he just might want those things badly enough to sabotage The Program's next mission.

Boy Nobody is a page-turning, thought-provoking, complex thriller with an unforgettable anti-hero. A memorable read for young adults. * Carousel * A brilliant, fast paced thriller. Clever and well-written, this is a thought-provoking and exciting page-turner. * Booktrust * Not just another a boy-assassin novel... Zadoff favours short, choppy sentences, which create a tough-private-detective edginess - and are also a boon for less able readers. * Jewish Chronicle * Melds Jason Bourne with the best of James Bond... a gripping thriller. * Flipside * A thought-provoking psychological study of control and freedom. Its laconic, staccato style adds considerably to its merits. * Irish Times * Fast-paced with plenty of twists and turns and tension which hold the reader's focus until the end. * Peters Gazette * Unresolved mysteries and an open-ended conclusion make this a promising start to an exciting new series. * School Library Journal * The plot speeds along seamlessly with plenty of action and drama, and hairpin turns will keep readers guessing; a twist in the end will have them begging for more. Fast, furious and fun! * Kirkus Reviews * A tense and exciting story with a strong cast. * Publishers Weekly * 'Zadoff shines in this entertaining twist on the teen spy novel...hard-edged narration and twists will keep readers riveted.' * Publisher's Weekly (STARRED review) * A fast-paced thriller following the adventures of a brainwashed teen assassin. * Children's Bookseller *
