Survive. No matter what happens to you, no matter the circumstances, no matter what life tosses at you--the losses, the pain. You must survive.
This book was originally published under the title Boy Nobody and it is the first book in The Unknown Assassin series. It received a lot of positive reviews as Boy Nobody so when I got the email about it being available on NetGalley as a Read Now I snagged it right up.
I feel like I read through this super fast. I really didn't want this to end. Benjamin (Zach) was such an interesting character to follow. He could really kick some ass but you also could tell that in the back of his mind he is conflicted about the things that he is doing for The Program. I really liked that conflict and felt like made him more than just a cold-hearted assassin. He is complex, just like the rest of us, he just forces himself to bury those memories, thoughts, and feelings.
I really enjoyed all the action in this book. I feel like because it has such great action that this book could be read and enjoyed by teens of both genders. Allen Zadoff did a good job at mixing the right amount of romance and action. Not only will teens enjoy this, adults will as well.
I thoroughly enjoyed reading this and look forward to reading the second book in this series when it comes out in June. If you are looking for a book with a teen assassin that can kick ass and has some complexity to him then this is the book for you. Thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for the galley.
