"They needed the perfect soldier: one who could function in every situation without fear, sympathy or anger; who could assassinate strangers and then walk away emotionally unscathed. So they made Boy Nobody--a teen with no name or history. The perfect soldier." Boy Nobody is the perennial new kid in school, the one few notice and nobody thinks much about. He shows up in a new high school, in a new town, under a new name, makes few friends and doesn't stay long. Just long enough for someone in his new friend's family to die--of "natural causes." Mission accomplished, Boy Nobody disappears, and moves on to the next target. But when he's assigned to the mayor of New York City, things change. The daughter seems so much like him; the mayor smells like his father. And when memories and questions surface, the Program is watching. Because somewhere, deep inside Boy Nobody, is somebody: the kid he once was, the teen who wants normal things like a real home and parents, a young man who wants out. And who just might want those things badly enough to sabotage The Program's mission.

Review:

A fast-paced thriller following the adventures of a brainwashed teen assassin. (Children's Bookseller)

'Zadoff shines in this entertaining twist on the teen spy novel...hard-edged narration and twists will keep readers riveted.' (Publisher's Weekly (STARRED review))

A tense and exciting story with a strong cast. (Publishers Weekly)

The plot speeds along seamlessly with plenty of action and drama, and hairpin turns will keep readers guessing; a twist in the end will have them begging for more. Fast, furious and fun! (Kirkus Reviews)

Unresolved mysteries and an open-ended conclusion make this a promising start to an exciting new series. (School Library Journal)

Fast-paced with plenty of twists and turns and tension which hold the reader's focus until the end. (Peters Gazette)

A thought-provoking psychological study of control and freedom. Its laconic, staccato style adds considerably to its merits. (Irish Times)

Melds Jason Bourne with the best of James Bond... a gripping thriller. (Flipside)

Not just another a boy-assassin novel... Zadoff favours short, choppy sentences, which create a tough-private-detective edginess - and are also a boon for less able readers. (Jewish Chronicle)

A brilliant, fast paced thriller. Clever and well-written, this is a thought-provoking and exciting page-turner. (Booktrust)
