The Lovereading4Kids comment

Fictional superheroes don’t come much more appealing than Troy, one of a group of teenagers with awesome super powers recruited by secret agency SPEAR to protect society against a gang of ruthless terrorists, and the premise for the Bullet Catcher series will be irresistible to anyone who’s ever dreamed of being a hero, i.e. pretty well all of us. As always in Bradford’s books, the action is fast and furious, with just enough time between the explosions and thrills for a touch of humour or character development. The ending will leave readers on tenterhooks for the next part in the series too. Described by publisher Barrington Stoke as super readable, this definitely meets that description. ~ Andrea Reece

Now a sniper is targeting key figures on the City Council and fear is at an all-time high. It's up to Troy and his team of bulletcatchers to protect the Mayor's daughter Pandora at all costs, but the danger seems to be everywhere and he's beginning to question what SPEAR have told him about his superpowers...

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
