It’s getting late (I’m writing this on Wednesday evening), and I REALLY want to get in bed and read, so I’m going to make this a quick and to the point post Boy Nobody by Allen Zadoff (releases June 11th) sounds really cool so I’m excited to see a book trailer for it. I’m kind of ashamed to admit that I haven’t read any of his books yet! Hopefully Boy Nobody is a good one to start with.
Summary (From Goodreads):
They needed the perfect assassin.
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 a 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, moving on to the next target.
But when he’s assigned to the mayor of New York City, things change. The daughter is unlike anyone he has encountered before; the mayor reminds him of his father. And when memories and questions surface, his handlers at The Program are 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.
In this action-packed series debut, author Allen Zadoff pens a page-turning thriller that is as thought-provoking as it is gripping, introducing an utterly original and unforgettable antihero.
