I just read Alex Rider: Stormbreaker by Anthony Horowitz. I really liked this book. I think anybody who likes mysteries, and adventure books would love this book. There is a whole series of Alex Rider books. I plan to read them all! They are exciting and I was not bored at all.
Here is the website: Alex Rider
The story takes place in England. You are introduced to Alex Rider a fourteen year old boy who lives with his uncle. Alex learns that his uncle is not the boring banker he thought he was, after he is told that his uncle has died in a car accident. Alex's life is forever turned upside down as he discovers his Uncle didn't die in a simple car accident, and that he has a chance to avenge his uncle's death.
