Recent Reads: Liar & Spy by Rebecca Stead

Liar & Spy by Rebecca Stead
Publisher: Random House Kids
Available: NOW?? August 7, 2012
Format: ARC

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Background: Georges (silent S) has recently had to move out of his home and into an apartment in the city, he still goes to the same school with the same bully kids, but he is about to make a very strange friend, Safer. Safer and The Spy Club come into Georges life as her arrives at his new home and the adventures to come are both fun and scary, especially when Safer starts to ask him to do serious spy things.

Review: This was an adorable read. I really enjoyed the way Georges leads the reader into his life and his experiences. Stead did a wonderful job keeping the reader guessing, and it is for 9-12 year-olds, and I am a lot older than that and was enthralled the whole way through. The character building is wonderful, the plot is interesting and there were enough twists to keep anyone glued to the story.

I highly recommend this for adults and middle grade readers alike. I was a beautiful tale about friendship, coping, and progressive ways to deal with bullying.

Book was won through RandomBuzzers giveaway.
