Boy Nobody

Boy Nobody - Allen Zadoff 3/28/13Joint review with my teen reviewer (he of the Revolution 19 review) coming soon. I twisted his arm. Hard.4/20/13Okay, here's where we both came out. He liked the action scenes but was disappointed by the lack of variety in the methods by which this teen assassin carried out his job. I liked the creativity in the ways in which teen assassin communicated with his handlers, but felt that the level of the writing was too basic and the assassin's relationships with girls were a little too junior James Bond (a few pages of banter, then she can no longer resist him....) to please the average adult reader of YA.I see this book as a perfect fit for reluctant teen readers or fans of James Bond style action and romance. There is some mature content (two cut-away sex scenes and brief discussion of a sex act) plus plenty of non-graphic violence.Our full conversation about the book can be found here on my blog!
