I won’t give it away. What you need to know is that the characters are complex and real, and the story is intricate and good. Georges tells us about his life: moving from a great house to an apartment, school where he’s the only one who really eats the lunches while his former best friend defected to the cool, bagel-only table, and a new friend named Safer, captain of the Spy Club, gives him all kinds of crazy missions. It’s a story of friendship, of overcoming fear and of learning how to cope with problematic people.
Liar & Spy is engaging, both fun and serious, and a definite must-read.
