Alibi Junior High
by Greg Logsted
Ages 9-12 256 pages Aladdin June 2009 Hardcover    

Thirteen-year-old Cody Saron has traveled the world, can speak five languages and has two black belts. Living the undercover life of espionage with his CIA agent father is all Cody knows - until, after a deadly explosion, Cody is sent to live with his Aunt Jenny in a Connecticut suburb for his own safety. There he is faced with his most difficult mission yet: junior high.

Cody is thrust into the unrelenting world of a pecking order about which he has no clue. From wearing the wrong clothes to infiltrating the heart of a pre-teen girl, this young spy navigates school more like Inspector Clouseau on a bad day. But when his auntís safety is threatened, Codyís demeanor quickly likens that of James Bond, and the bad guys are in for quite a surprise.

Greg Logstedís realistic portrayal of Cody Saron is witty, fun and full of all the intrigue a fantastic spy adventure should contain. Although there are no high-tech gadgets or feats of super human strength, there is neither any shortness of suspense, humor or heart. That Codyís story could really happen makes this book all the more clever and captivating. Whatís your alibi?
