Would you like that shaken, or stirred? Alex Rider not your average 14-year-old boy. He leads a double life as a London schoolboy and as a secret agent for Britainís Secret Service, the M-16. In Point Blank he is sent undercover to an exclusive boyís correctional school to discover what connection there might be to two powerful menís murders and their sons who attend the school. Alex is equipped only with a bullet-proof ski jacket, infra-red ski goggles, a CD-player with a Beethoven CD that converts into a circular saw, a dart gun disguised as the latest Harry Potter book and an ear stud that is really a small grenade. Did I mention that Alex is a secret agent?

Point Blank is the second book in the Alex Rider Adventures. Read this book only if you love non-stop action and adventure.  (Melissa Bowman, Melissa.Bowman@pisd.edu, Armstrong Middle School,  Lone Star Book Award nominee, 2003-2004)
