Title: The Hit by Allen Zadoff

Rating: ★★★★.5

Release: 11th June 2013

Synopsis: 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. When Boy Nobody was just eleven, he discovered his own parents had died of not-so-natural causes. He soon found himself under the control of The Program, a shadowy government organization that uses brainwashed kids as counter-espionage operatives. But somewhere, deep inside Boy Nobody, is somebody: the boy he once was, the boy who wants normal things (like a real home, his parents back), a boy who wants out. And he just might want those things badly enough to sabotage The Program’s next mission.divider-2461548_1280Review:

A unique story of Boy Nobody – it will grip you right to the last word.

The book was so well written I was truly intrigued from page one and I loved how much backstory we got of ‘Benjamin’. The book itself has do many layers to it and reminded me so much of I Am Pilgrim but a YA version which was brilliant.

I loved how Boy Nobody interacted with everyone and the ending truly left me shocked. It was a perfect ending, but definitely not one I was expecting to happen.

The depth that went into this book was amazing and I’m really excited about reading the rest of the series!

If you love a good spy book, then please look no further!
