The Recruit by Robert Muchamore

If you have a great taste for action and adventure, then read this awesome book. It is about a young boy named James Adams, who is chosen for a top secret organisation called CHERUB, where children go on undercover missions and help save Britain. And there’s one key thing: no one suspects that children are spying on them. 5 stars.
Maximum Security by Robert Muchamore
 This book is great because the author’s writing style ensures full graphic images that you can visualise when you read it.
