I recommend the book Stormbreaker to anyone who loves nonstop adventure and action. This book is about a 15 year old boy named Alex. Alex has just found out that his uncle, Ian Rider, has died in a car crash, and according the police, he didn’t have a seatbelt on, or he would have had a chance. Alex knows that his uncle was the most careful man in the whole world; he wouldn’t even start the car without Alex putting on his seatbelt. At his uncle’s funeral, his suspicion rise when so many people arrive. Alex knew that his uncle was very secretive, private and was never the social bird. After the funeral, when Alex goes to the junkyard to see his uncle's car, the mysterious holes on the side of the car make Alex even more suspicious. Alex soon finds out that his uncle worked for the MI6, Britain’s top-secret intelligence agency. He finds out that his uncle was working on his latest mission, the Stormbreaker, made by Herod Sayle, who will give thousands of free Stormbreakers in exchange for becoming a British citizen. The MI6 has their suspicions. When Alex gets an offer to take his uncle’s place, he doesn’t know if he should trust the MI6 or distrust them. Stormbreaker will have you at the edge of your seats throughout the whole book.
