#tbt - Stormbreaker by Anthony Horowitz
Stormbreaker by Anthony Horowitz. Alex Rider series #1. 192 p. Philomel Books/ Penguin Young Readers Group, 2000. 0399236201.
#tbt features Stormbreaker by Anthony Horowitz. This first book in the Alex Rider series was published in Great Britain in 200 and in the United States in 2001. Alex Rider was a fourteen-year-old school boy living a quiet life with his banker uncle and American nanny when the two receive word that Ian Rider was killed in a car crash. Details don't add up. Alex investigates and discovers that his uncle was a spy for MI6 and the director wants Alex to complete the mission.
Fast-paced and suspenseful, the whole series is quite popular at TMS. Horowitz thought he wrote his last Alex Rider book in 2011 but found he had more adventures for our favorite teenage spy. Ms. Kahn got to meet Mr. Horowitz a a local bookstore yesterday and had him autograph a book for TMS students. It will be available for checkout as soon as she reads it!
