A.N.T.I.D.O.T.E Is about a boy who's mum has been arrested for breaking in to Shelby's manafacturers, because she thinks they test their products om animals. They have been caught on tape breaking in, but Elliot's mum tells him it's a fake, so he starts trying to prove she's innocent.

This is a very good book that is nearly impossible to put down.It grips you ther moment you start reading it. This book is crammed full of little things that happened described in an interesting and exciting way, that help you picture the setting.

This book would be perfect for years 9+.

The story is about a boy called Elliot and his mum lived together until one day a police man knocked on a door and said is Maria in and I said yes one minute. I was thinking she's a secretive not a spy as she was being accused for being Now she is on the run.

The book is set in 3 different places at a geeky school were I don't fit in. A police station where I think mum is at the moment and at home in a very Ruth place called Richmond.

Elliot is one of the main characters he is small with short hair quite fat and lives on his own in Richmond.
Maria (Elliot's mum) we don't know any think about her other than she is being accused as a spy. Nosh (Elliot's geek) was tall with massive round yellow glasses.

I like the book because it is so far all about crime scenes and all to do with police and they are the sort of books I like. I don't think there is anything to change on the book because it just all fits in. I would recommend this book to a friend if they liked books to do with crime scenes and described characters the age I would recommend this to would be 7+.

A book with a lot of action and anxious moments. Some good descriptions and interesting mysteries that you try to solve before the book.
