Book Review - Alexander, Spy Catcher
Most boys in middle school deal with things like tricky algebra problems, stress from sports' tryouts, and the fear of talking to girls. For brothers Alexander and Ben, however, their somewhat normal lives of building forts in the woods and playing video games in their free time are abruptly turned upside down.
As Alexander, Spy Catcher by Diane Stormer opens, a seemingly normal October turns into an exciting and terrifying adventure for Alexander and Ben. They unwittingly discover that their uncle Charlie may be in danger because of a secret government project he is working on.
The boys notice strange happenings around their family's home. Could the tunnels that have been talked about for years really exist? What does the old railroad track have to do with what is happening? Who is the man in the black Ford pick-up and what is he doing near their fort? Why is there a clandestine protected Wi-Fi network in their forest-covered property? Does the discovery of a Victorian speaking tube have anything to do with what is happening?
When Alexander and Ben suspect that their uncle is being spied upon, they agree to warn him about what they've discovered. But on the night they decide to tell him about their ﬁndings, Uncle Charlie disappears without a trace.
Now, Alexander and Ben have to help their family discover what happened to their uncle before it's too late. They must overcome some dangerous obstacles in order to solve the mystery of their uncle's disappearance.
Alexander, Spy Catcher is sure to keep readers on the edge of their seats as they follow the boys on a journey filled with new challenges page after page.
My Take on the Book
As someone that loves a great mystery, this was an amazing book! If you love the a good story with a strong plot and characters that will keep you going from beginning to end, you will love this book! Not only was the story strong but the mystery itself is amazing, you will be on the edge of your seat from the start to finish and the author does not give away one bit of the story until she has to like a good mystery should! All-in-all this was a great story for the whole family that I would highly encourage all to read!
