Fall '12 Kids List

“This fantastic successor to Stead's Newbery Medal-winning When You Reach Me is a subtle mystery with a quirky and vulnerable protagonist and loving but fallible adults. Stead is a master of weaving big thematic questions with ingenious everyday details. She tells this story about lies, games, rules, and friendship through facts about maps of the tongue, seasonal candy, and invented spelling. I absolutely adore this book!”

Description

The instant New York Times bestseller from the author of the Newbery Medal winner When You Reach Me: a story about spies, games, and friendship.
 
The first day Georges (the S is silent) moves into a new Brooklyn apartment, he sees a sign taped to a door in the basement: SPY CLUB MEETING—TODAY!
 
That’s how he meets his twelve-year-old neigh­bor Safer. He and Georges quickly become allies—and fellow spies. Their assignment? Tracking the mysterious Mr. X, who lives in the apartment upstairs. But as Safer’s requests become more and more demanding, Georges starts to wonder: how far is too far to go for your only friend?
