Synopsis

i-ssassins by Christopher Edge

14-year-old Luke Kitson has it all - a luxury London flat. A massive telly. No school. No parents. And the ability to hack his way into any dream he could imagine. Until one day, a knock at his door brings him to ELITE - a covert section of MI5, full of teenage cyberspys working to combat cyber terrorists. But when Luke and the ELITE team begin investigating YourLife, a new social networking site with vast ambitions, his new cyberspy job takes a turn for the terrifying. Disappearances begin - first members of the site, next MI5 agents, and finally one of the ELITE hackers. Luke's mission? Infiltrate YourLife's skyscraper headquarters, find his friend, and try to stay alive. One hundred floors. One thousand people who will do anything to stop him. Can Luke prove that he belongs to the ELITE, or will he die trying?i-SSASSINS is part of the HEROES series - created with series editor Frank Cottrell Boyce and specifically written to engage and captivate less confident readers. An epic tale packed full of action and cliff-hangers that boys and girls will not be able to put down. A great solution for reluctant readers and encouraging reading for pleasure. The action was exciting and balanced with information that helped to develop the plot... My pupils have a variety of reading difficulties and they are loving this series! Julie Sutherland, Forrester High School, Edinburgh A fabulous story and so inventive! Christine Babbs, Liberton High School, Edinburgh
