CHERUB: The Recruit

(6 reviews with an average rating of 4 out of 5)

Publisher: Hachette

James Choke comes from a dysfunctional family, and is often in trouble at school. When his mother dies, James is sent to a children's home, but here he is recruited into the ranks of CHERUB - a secret organisation established during World War II, which trains children between ten and seventeen as spies. CHERUB agents live in the real world, slipping under the adult radar and collecting information that sends criminals and terrorists to jail - and for official purposes, these children do not exist.

The first book in Robert Muchamore's spectacular CHERUB series follows James through his gruelling basic training, and an undercover mission which sees him helping to foil a group of terrorists. Chilling, convincing and brilliantly-written, this adventure will grip readers from beginning to end.
