I want to be a CHERUB!!!!!!!!!,
By A Customer
This review is from: The Recruit (Cherub) (Paperback)
This book is sooo cool. The characters are believable and totally original and the plots are realistic, witty and carismatic.
James Choke is about as normal as an 11 yr old boy can be with no father and a deceased mother. He's taken into care while his sister Lauren goes to live with her hated father. James is recruited by CHERUB, a school where children learn survival skills, combat and weaponary. This school is the child version of the British intelligence.
For the first time in his life James enjoys school and fits in. He makes new friends who each have a tragic story to tell. At CHERUB they are a family and they'll look after their own because they have nobody else.
This book is funny yet full of tension, after reading everyone wants to be a part of CHERUB and I don't blame them. Everyone should read this book.
