The Lovereading4Kids comment

The second in a new action series that will threaten Alex Rider’s No 1 position. Jimmy was a normal 11 year old boy but in the last month he has developed extraordinary powers that let him move with lightning speed, breathe underwater and even catch bullets! These powers are a result of extreme genetic engineering the aim of which was to create the ultimate assassin for the British secret forces. Jimmy doesn’t want to follow the path that has been set for him – so now he is a target.

To read the series in order start with Killer, then Target, then Revenge and finally the newest Sabotage.

Synopsis

Jimmy Coates:Target by Joe Craig

Jimmy tried to swim through the refuse, but it was churning with too much force. The hydraulic swivel system sucked him down towards the funnel. Could I survive that? he asked himself desperately. His mind was clogged with so many thoughts, but only one certainty- even he wasnt strong enough to withstand a shredding.

Reviews

“…a totally excellent adventure – a lit bit Bond, a lit bit Matrix and a lot of what you’ve never read before. Someone make this into a movie!” Flipside

“A gripping action-thriller that’s packed with twists.” Funday Times

“The perfect primer to the Bourne series by Robert Ludlum.” VOYA
