    2. Do you think Junior High is tough? Apparently Cody does even though he can speak 5 languages, knows mixed martial arts, and has a father who is a secret agent. The genre of this book is realistic fiction. I honestly enjoyed reading this book. I enjoyed it because the plot is completely new from what I've been reading lately. Also, Cody, the main character, is an awesome character and he's the same age as me, which makes the book better to read since I can relate to some of Cody's experiences.The [...]

    4. I thought that this book was really great. Alot of action inside the book Alibi Junior High.

    5. This book is every bit as funny and cute as the cover makes it seem. Cody is a thirteen year old kid who's spent his life traveling the world with his CIA agent father. Now, with bad guys on the hunt for his dad, Cody's been sent to his aunt's house to live the life of a normal teen and stay safe while his dad tracks down the bad guys. Cody has never been around large groups of his peers, nor has he lived a normal life, so he has no idea how to act or how to even get along at school. There were [...]

    6. What surprised me about this book was that it has such a clever premise that it sounded like one of those goofy slam-bang made-for-kids movies, but it turned out to be sort of poignant. It makes me wonder if the author started out goofy slam-bang, and then his story dragged him in a different direction.Cody's father, an undercover CIA agent, has been dragging him all over the globe, teaching him spy skills kind of by default and exposing him to all kinds of danger in a really "guy" way. Now Cody [...]

Now Cody must deal with not fitting in and learn that there is more to life than hustling from mission to mission.From the title I had assumed this would be a light-hearted Spy Kids type read. I [...]

As Cody tries to navigate the tricky waters of junior high, he befriends a young military man who's recently come home from Iraq and they investigate mysterious [...]

    9. I enjoyed this book. Cody has only known the life of a spy, traveling around the world with his CIA father, helping his father with his missions. After a tragic event, he is sent to live with his aunt, and for the first time in his life, he is faced with something daunting, something that he hasn't been able to train for: junior high. I found the book funny and engaging. The times that Cody ends up in the principal's office were numerous because of his lack of understanding how things are. Throu [...]

    10. I was pleasantly surprised by this book! I thought it would be an exaggerated spy story, but it was a very touching and exciting story! Cody has spent his life traveling the world with his spy father. Due to a horrifying, near death event, he is sent to live with his aunt. He must try to fit in to a school that isn't open to creative thinkers (and he's always been home schooled), deal with the horror of the bombing he experienced, and he is very worried that he is being followed.

    13. Kind of fun albeit very predictable story; some of the characters were quite obnoxious I found, but otherwise likeable.

    14. Great bookThis book is great honestly, the plot is great, the story itself is well written and engrossing. Overall great book

    15. I read this in the past and I believe it's about the second time I'm reading this book. I absolutely adore teen spy books. A small simple read from beginning to the end.

    16. Excellent teen read as a young man raised as and by an undercoer spy tries to fit in as a normal junior high student.

    17. I love this book so much. I read it in a few hours. It was so cute to see Cody trying to impress a girl he likes, and when the guys started teasing him and all that I dunno, I just thought it was cute. It made me smile. I like smiling.

    20. t has been the summer of books that surprised me! When I first got this book I had a completely different idea of what it was about. I was thinking it would be a book about a young boy who was a genius or something and works for the CIA on some "teen spy team"! WRONG! Yes the CIA is in the story, but it's Cody's father that works with them not Cody. And yes Cody knows a lot about spying, fighting and CIA type stuff (and we see him use it), but it's more than that. Cody has to live with his aunt [...]

    21. This story of Cody, who's been raised helping his father with CIA work and lived as a sort of agent-in-training, has great middle school booktalk-ability. When working with this father, things take a dangerous twist, and the decision is made to have Cody live a normal life for a while, moving in with an aunt he's never met, and going to (gasp) public school. For someone with extensive private schooling and weapons and martial-arts training, Cody thinks "normal" life is going to be a piece of cak [...]

    23. Great book that I can see this as a movie!! The premise - think James Bond but in junior high. Cody, at 13, has seen some thing that no grown man of 40 could even dream.

    24. For fans of the Alex Rider series I recommend this book. Cody Saron is comfortable teaming up with his CIA father, traveling the world and helping track down bad guys. His father has prepared him for just about any situation. He speaks five languages; he knows how to get out of dangerous situations. He is used to facing death. When Cody and his father barely escape an explosion in France Cody finds him being shipped to his aunt’s house. Unfortunately as prepared as he is to deal with the dange [...]

    25. Some people compare this book to the young james bond and the cherubs. This is actually far off to what this book actually is. I will admit is a gripping story that kept me reading from the very beginning. I read it in about 4 hours on a day off. It gave me a few good laughs. Not to give any specifics this book is about a boy spy who now has to go to an ordinary school. Now you can imagine what happens after that. I would recommend this book for boy from 9 years old to about 15 years old. I reco [...]

    26. Thirteen-year-old Cody Saron has never lived in one place longer than a few weeks.

He worked as a team with his dad until one day it went sour. Then he had to live with his aunt and go to 'real' public school. Bus rides, classmates, and bullies were harder than gangsters.

    28. Cody Saron is not your typical teenager. He has traveled the world with his CIA agent father and has learned survival skills that no other teen his age should know. Cody's father knows he is endangering his son so he asks his sister-in-law to care for Cody as he enters his 8th grade year in a new school. What Cody and his father don't realize is that danger has followed Cody to the small Connecticut suburb in which he now lives. While Cody deals with his first crush, fitting in at a new school, [...]

    29. Choppy plot and an undeveloped main character blew this one for me. Cody has grown up living an adventurous life following his undercover CIA agent dad on missions all around the world. When a case becomes too dangerous Cody's father sends him to live with an Aunt he never knew he had. There, in Connecticut, Cody must try to live a normal life, building relationships, establishing roots, and attending junior-high.
