When his own parents died of not-so-natural causes at the age of eleven, Boy Nobody found himself under the control of The Program, a shadowy government organization that uses brainwashed kids as counter-espionage operatives. But somewhere, deep inside Boy Nobody, is somebody: the boy he once was, the boy who wants normal things (like a real home, his parents back), a boy who wants out. And he just might want those things badly enough to sabotage The Program’s next mission.
Like many of my books, I heard about this one through the grapevine known as Goodreads. I was instantly taken by the description. I had to have it. I wasn’t even thinking about it when I went to the book store almost a week ago, but when I saw it, I remembered. I remembered and now I wonder how I could have forgotten.

And here is my reaction now that I’ve finished it:
“All’s fair in love and war.”
“Which one are we doing?”
“I look out for her. Think of me as the early asshole warning system.”
“You specialize in ass, that’s what you’re telling me.”
“Did you spit in it?”
“That’s elementary school stuff. We’re in the big leagues now. I pissed in it.”
