Adam Locke's latest stunt got him expelled from high school, or so he thought. When the stuffy boys academy his parents send him to turns out to be a clandestine organization in need of new members, he and his classmate Emma begin to learn the shady skills of undercover operatives. During their country-hopping education, they uncover a grave threat to their new way of life and the organization itself. Can a pair of teenagers contend with an international criminal intent on revenge?
Adam Undercover, The Presidium Files is the first book in a planned four-book series. Written for the upper middle grade (7th grade, 12 and up) and young adult audiences, the story follows Adam and his new classmate Emma as they begin an education quite unlike the high schools they left. Intrigue, danger, excitement and adventure follow the pair around the world as they learn how to use the gadgets, technology and training at their disposal. As the action wraps up, the teenagers prove that regardless of your age or experience; wit, instincts and intelligence are often your most valuable tools.
Great young adult spy novel that's really enjoyable to read as an adult as well! The development of the characters and the fun exciting adventures and tech talk is fantastic, we all remember being 15 but we all wish it could have been this cool ;) Very well written, impossible to put down!
I love the teen spy genre and have read many e. g. Alex Ryder books, Chris Bradford bodyguard books, the Agent 21 books and cherub series, but I can state in the strongest terms that I loved Adam undercover. Here's why: I loved the character of Adam. I liked his family dynamics, and the interaction of all the characters was believable. This book has a reality to it that was refreshing, but at the same time it's not predictable. I was sad to see the end of this book and I'm really looking forward to more books in this series! Keep them coming Mr. Foster.
I loved this book. When I was reading it, I could get a clear image in my mind of the images the author was trying to convey; the details were rich and descriptive. However, I found the details to be a bit too specific at times. The entire story was balanced and moved at an appropriate pace. It progressed very nicely. It was a book that I think anyone could read and enjoy.
