Synopsis

The Recruit by Robert Muchamore

A 2014 World Book Night selection.

A terrorist doesn't let strangers in her flat because they might be undercover police or intelligence agents, but her children bring their mates home and they run all over the place. The terrorist doesn't know that one of these kids has bugged every room in her house, made copies of all her computer files and stolen her address book. The kid works for CHERUB. CHERUB agents are aged between ten and seventeen. They live in the real world, slipping under adult radar and getting information that sends criminals and terrorists to jail. For official purposes, these children do not exist.

Lovereading takes the guesswork out of finding your next read with "if you like you'll love" and extracts to help with your decision.

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.
