Book Review: CHERUB Series ‘The Recruit’ (Book 1) by Robert Muchamore

‘A terrorist doesn’t let strangers into her flat because they might be undercover police or intelligence agents, but her children bring their mates home and they run all over the place.

The terrorist doesn’t know that one of these kids has bugged every room in her house, made copies of all her computer files and stolen her address book. The kid works for CHERUB.

CHERUB agents are aged between ten and seventeen. They live in the real world, slipping under adult radar and getting information that sends criminals and terrorists to jail.

For official purposes, these children do not exist.’

With a blurb like that I was instantly hooked. In an area overflowing with teenage paranormal romance, The Recruit is like a breath of fresh air. You guys – it’s a book about these kick ass kids who are spies. Spies!! They go on cool secret missions and hard-core training exercises and help stop the bad guys and there’s not one brooding, tortured, ridiculously attractive male protagonist (*coughvampire/angel/werewolf/fairy*) in sight!
