Boy nobody
By Allen Zadoff

I was sent this link today and I really should wait until at least the end of May to showcase this trailer but I just know this is going to be a great book. The very well produced trailer hooks you in straight away. You can download an excerpt and get stuck in but then unfortunately you and I will have to wait until June to buy the book.
Allen Zadoff’s website is also very cool and so is the book’s Facebook page.

Boy Nobody is always the new kid in school showing up out of almost nowhere in a new town.
He never stays long enough to make true friends but the friends he does make always end up with someone in the family dying of “natural causes.”
“Mission accomplished, Boy Nobody disappears, and moves on to the next target”.
A new assignment attached to the mayor of New York City starts him questioning things. Past memories begin to surface. Somewhere under all the memories is a boy that just wants a normal life. But what is the cost?

Seconds away
By Harlan Coben
Book 2 in the Mickey Bolitar series

In Shelter (book 1) 15 year old Mickey believes danger weaves its way into his life if he lets anyone near. His father has died, his mother is in rehab and his girlfriend has gone missing.
In Seconds away the action continues and so too does the belief that not everything is as it seems to be. Twists and turns, fast paced action continues. For more check out the Mickey Bolitar site.

If you loved the Alex Rider series by Anthony Horowitz or the Cherub series by Robert Muchamore then this is a great series just for you.
