Scott is short, smart and pretty witty, he’s essentially the narrator of the book. He has an older brother and a soon to be born baby brother whom he’s writing a high school “survival guide” of sorts to. Throughout the book we follow this book lover through is first year at J.P. Zenger High. Also, he’s a red head (learned at the very end).
The book takes a lot of perspectives mainly among Aries, Clementine, Michael and mason. This is really good compared to other books. The multiple perspective makes it feel like a movie and mixes it up. Also, it has an abundance of suspenseful cliff-hangers that make you crave to read more and lead you on. The characters also aren’t afraid all the time and cower how most teens would. They seem to know how to live in the moment, and have good times and joke even when there is danger. That shows us they are fearless kids just about.

The term “Covert Action” brings with it a connotation of shadowy figures wrapped in secrecy and intrigue. It also brings with it a substantial amount of moral questions as to “what is right.” The use of covert action has been widely publicized since the early seventies, but trying to find out the truth to these events has been difficult to say the least. What is even more difficult, is historically recording these events into categories of successes or failures. These operations are difficult to dissect because of their secrecy and although events have been recorded, some facts simply aren’t apparent. This paper will seek to identify the complex issues associated with covert operations.
Menace II Society, a film about a young Black man who has lived the “hustler” lifestyle and is struggling to leave it, is a perfect example of deviance as the main character, Caine Lawson, and the characters around him violate many of society’s norms. Throughout the film, the characters swear incessantly, carry around guns and drugs as most people would carry around cell phones, commit street crimes, especially burglary and mugging, on a regular basis, and beat and kill people unscrupulously. The following quote captures just how deviant Caine and the other characters in this film were, “[Caine] went into the store just to get a beer. Came out an accessory to murder and armed robbery. It's funny like that in the hood sometimes. You never
The American Revolution saw the rise of the American spy, and the father of these spies was George Washington, commander in Chief of the Continental Army. The siege of New York demonstrated the importance and dire need for an intelligence to General Washington. Unfortunately, the difficulty, at least initially, lay with finding people willing and able to serve in this manner.
Cameron Morgan is not a normal girl. She goes to spy school, speaks fourteen different languages, and knows how to kill a man seven different ways with her bare hands. She’s basically prepared for everything, except for love.
The book was enjoyable to read. I could relate to each character in a different way. My favorite part of the book was when each character was introduced in their chapters. The characters are all so different but all have one thing in common which is being on the list. I would highly recommend this book to classmates.
Thinking in the philosophical terms of "good" and "evil," nothing purely "good" can survive without the slightest taint of "evil," and vice-versa. The same standard exists for everything. Just as you cannot always succeed by being purely honest, a government cannot hold itself together without committing it's own personal rights and wrongs. The United States of America has protected its residents well in the past, and kept the appearance of a mild innocense; well, most of it, anyway. The Covert Intelligence Agency (CIA) is mostly swamped in its wrongs, though many have not even been proven. The CIA has been this country's "yang" to protect the populace of the USA.
Cody the baseball coach calls Mike into his office and tells him he wants him to spy on the cyber club because he thinks that they are hacking into the school files Mike thinks it's because Coach Cody has something to hide but Mike goes along with it and they get into an argument because Saturday there is a hitting clinic in the city and the baseball team is supposed to go but coach wants Mike to go with the cyber club to some convention instead.

As soon as coach Cody knew they were on to him he disappeared and never came back and Oscar never showed up to school either. Everyone was sad to see coach Cody go but Mike felt brand new he felt like he didn't have to worry about losing his spot anymore to an illegal as he calls them. The beginning of this book there was a contest to make a video and sent it to your favorite person and Mike mad
The 11 sleepers live in Monterey and Salinas with successful careers and blend well with the community. The sleeper cell is assembled with unique strengths and access to key targets. According to Stewart (2010), “In the terminology of espionage, a “sleeper” is an operative who infiltrates the society, or even the government, of a targeted country and is there to remain dormant until activated by a prearranged signal or a certain chain of events” (para. 5). This sleeper cell was established years ago. The sleeper cell is comprised of three language instructors at DLI, two machinists with degrees in metallurgy, one veteran HAZMAT driver for Chlorine, two cyber hackers, one chemist, and two electronic communication experts.
The traitor is about a sixteen-seventeen year old who at age twelve was forced to join a secrect government organization that call themselves the program. As the third and final book in the boy nobody series it, like the previous two books, is fast paced and gives you a sense of excitement and keeps you on the edge of your seat. In my opinion The Traitor was incredibly good even though it could be a bit slow paced at times, I thoroughly enjoyed the action packed series and I think it will accumulate numerous amounts of success over time.
