Review: This is the sixth installment of Robert Muchamore's CHERUB series, which is about a secret organization, a part of MI5, that employs...children. Oh yeah, children, because adults never suspect a child might be keeping an eye on them.
here's the synopsis:

Animal rights, animal wrongs.

Every day thousands of animals die in laboratory experiments. Some say these experiments provide essential scientific knowledge, while others commit violent acts in order to stop them.

James and Lauren Adams are stuck in the middle...

James, Lauren and Kyle will infiltrate on a secret terrorist group that attacks companies that make animals suffer, by experimenting on them, or by not letting them live in proper life conditions. There, they'll make a choice: what is more important, their mission or the ideals behind the animal support organizations.

I really liked this book. Overall, I really like the idea of spy kids, and in this particular series, the fact that they're not just highly skilled agents but also children (with food fights, bickering and kid/teen related issues) really pleases me and the way it's written is good also very good.

Rating:4/5 kisses

I loved that part at the beginning "Oh yeah, children, because adults never suspect a child might be keeping an eye on them." I was laughing aloud. My 3 year old was looking at me funny. :D Good job Leo!
