Liar and Spy by Rebecca Stead

When seventh grader Georges (the S is silent) moves into a Brooklyn apartment building, he meets Safer, a twelve-year-old coffee-drinking loner and self-appointed spy. Georges becomes Safer's first spy recruit. His assignment? Tracking the mysterious Mr. X, who lives in the apartment upstairs. But as Safer becomes more demanding, Georges starts to wonder: how far is too far to go for your only friend?

Liar & Spy is a unique and entertaining story. The two main characters are 13 and they are spies-I love any book where the characters are spies. I laughed a lot reading this book and at other times I had to stop and consider some of the questions the author asks in the book, like why do some people get to make the rules and why do we decided to obey those rules.
The author clearly understand how kids think and some of the challenges they face at school and in their families. I loved being surprised by the twist at the end of the book. I highly recommend this book for boys and girls, ages 9-13.
Thank you to Wendy Lamb Books for this book!

Happy reading!
