All of our bargain books are brand new, perfectly readable and represent a tremendous value! The bargain books are, however, publisher overstocks and remainders that TRW purchases at deep discounts. As a result, they may have a small mark through the UPC bar code or a small mark on the side of the book. This is simply to mark the books so they cannot be sent back to a publisher. Because of this, bargain books are non returnable to TRW unless they are damaged. Please consider this before ordering.

When sixteen-year-old Kari gets a "Code Black" from her parents--who may or may not be Russian spies--she and her brilliant brother Charlie go on the run and attempt to save them. Predictable dialogue rings false, but the easy read and breakneck pace will attract adventure-seeking readers. Contrasting the retro KGB backdrop with tech-savvy hackers is interesting but feels odd.

Gr 7 Up—Kari Andrews's motto is, "when all else fails, resort to violence." This is sort of odd coming from a 16-year-old prep-school student living in the DC area, but then her parents are both spies working for the Agency, which readers can presume to mean the CIA. She is also proficient at judo and takes care of her seven-year-old genius brother, Charlie, as one of her missions in life. The plot is totally preposterous. Kari gets a message from her parents to grab Charlie and hide until they can reach her. With her high school friends at her side, she does some spying of her own when her parents fail to show up at the three designated safe spots. The teens break into Langley when they find out that Kari's mother is in custody there. It seems that the Agency believes her parents are double agents working for the Russians. Kari doesn't stop until she busts her mother out of captivity and can begin looking for her father. There is a twist at the end that keeps readers engaged. Though the premise is far-fetched, the book is an easy, fun read that would be an additional purchase for libraries looking for espionage fluff.—Elizabeth Kahn, Patrick F.
