Like Harry Potter, this YA novel is fun for kids of all ages. While ostensibly a spy thriller, full of twists and turns, high tech spy gadgets, ruses and deceptions, Code Name: Dodger goes far deeper, into conflicted characters, their complex relationships, and the true meaning of love, loyalty and family.Tawni Waters, author, Beauty of the Broken; Top Travel Writers of 2010
I’m 50 years older than the target market and I couldn’t put it down! The story line is extremely well crafted, and the first person narrative puts the reader into the protagonist’s shoes. If you have a teenager who doesn’t like to read, hand him this book. He’ll be hooked!George E. Nolly
I found myself anxiously turning pages and keeping my own record of clues, determined to solve this spy mystery right along with teenage Justin! This book is not short on twists and turns and drama. Perfect for every spy wanna be at any age!Tracy Simmons
