The New Recruit

Forced to choose between military school and a Christian spy organization, skeptic Spencer Garmond signs on with the Bible geeks. 

Title: The New Recruit (The Mission League #1)

Stars: 5

Age Level: 10+

Violence: Well. Uh. This, *ahem* is a spy book--so there was some. 

What I thought about this Book:

I was sucked in from the first paragraph. Characters, writing style, plot--everything was perfect.

Spencer Garmond *SPOILER ALERT* [(if that is what we should really call him...)]  *SPOILER ENDED* signs up to go on with the Bible geeks instead of being sent to military school.

Soon they're in Russia for the summer mission trip and meet lots of people. But when Spencer meets the blonde that he's been dreaming about for years, freaky things start to happen.

This is now one of my all time faves. I wish I had Jill's ability to describe and make characters feel real. Her writing style is amazing.

I could go on for many hours more about how fantastic this book was, BUT I can't do that because I have several other things I have to do.

But one thing, I don't know how I'm gonna live until I can buy book two.

About the Author:

Jill Williamson is a chocolate loving, daydreaming, creator of kingdoms and the award-winning author of several young adult books including By Darkness Hid, Replication, The New Recruit, and Captives. She got into writing one day when someone was complaining about teen books and she thought, “I could do that! How hard could it be?” Very, she soon learned. But she worked hard, and four years later, her first book, By Darkness Hid, was published and won several awards.

Hope you enjoyed that!! ;D
