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.
When a girl wakes up trapped on a sinking ship with no memory of who she is, she has nothing but her instinct to survive. As she fights her way to freedom, she quickly discovers two incredible facts: She is a dog and she can understand human speech. Soon, she befriends a thirteen-year-old boy named Chance who gives her a name of her own--Wild. But Wild and Chance find themselves running for their lives, pursued by relentless Animal Control officers. Joined by a mysterious hacker girl named Junebug, the unlikely trio fight for survival while trying to solve the mystery of Wild's extraordinary strength, super-intelligence, and high-tech collar. Equal parts heart-pounding action and heartfelt journey, Wild & Chance grabs the reader from page one and never lets go.
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.

Mit 12 Jahren wurde er rekrutiert, um todliche Missionen zu "e;erledigen"e;. Mit 16 ist BOY NOBODY einer der Besten. Weil er keine Fehler macht. Weil er eiskalt ist. Weil er seine Zielobjekte schnell und effektiv aus dem Weg raumt. Seine aktuelle Mission ndert jedoch alles: Denn die Zielperson ist ganz und gar nicht, was sie scheint. Und sie kommt ihm gefhrlich nahe. Zu nahe. Aber BOY NOBODY wird auch diesen Auftrag erfolgreich zu Ende bringen. Weil er einer der Besten ist. Weil er keine Fehler macht. Weil er eiskalt ist.
