His new novel, Boy Nobody, is the first in a new YA trilogy about a teenage assassin. Allen is a graduate of Cornell University and the Harvard University Institute forAdvanced Theatre Training. His training as a super spy, however, has yet to be verified.
A fast paced, action packed thriller. Boy Nobody is a teen assassin for the Program, a shadowy government organisation that uses brainwashed kids as counter-espionage operatives. He befriends the children of those he is targeted to kill. He doesn’t ask questions and he doesn’t fail. Until now. Perfect for fans of Jason Bourne, Robert Muchamore and Michael Grant.
The perfect assassin is now the perfect target. Boy Nobody was the Program's best soldier. Now, after going rogue, he's their number one target. The training that made him a killer is his best chance of survival. But in his search for the truth about the Program, he is forced to put his trust in another. And trust can be fatal. The final thrilling installment in this acclaimed action-adventure trilogy.
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.
He was the perfect assassin. No name. No past. No remorse. Perfect, that is, until he began to ask questions and challenge his orders. Now The Program is worried that their valuable soldier has become a liability. And so begins a new mission. A test of sorts. A chance to prove his loyalty. But nothing about this mission is as it seems: not The Program, his allegiances, nor the truth. More thrilling action-adventure from Allen Zadoff in the breathtaking sequel to The Hit (previously Boy Nobody).
