Storm Breaker by Anthony Horowitz

A Review by Arlina 

   Stormbreaker is by Anthony Horowitz. It’s about a boy named Alex Rider, and he is assigned to go on a dangerous mission. The police come over and tells him that his uncle got into a terrible accident. He lives in his uncle’s house in London, England, and he lives with a girl in her late twenties named Jackie Starbright. Alex meets a guy named Alan Blunt who is the head of his company. He comes face to face with Sayle, an evil villain. He tries to stop Sayle, with his cruel ruling of a nuclear bomb. Alex thinks that Sayle’s partner Yassen, has something to do about his uncle’s death. He meets people who he needs to use as resources. He faces a lot of missions that will need all of his strength. Alex becomes a courageous person like he rules the country in the end.

      I liked the Stormbreaker because it’s full of adventure, clues, mysteries, and it has cliff hangers at the end of each chapter which makes me want to keep on reading. My favorite part of the book is when he defeats all of the evil ruling. The author Anthony Horowitz has written many series, Stormbreaker is the first book of the Alex Rider series. I think this book should win the Newberry medal. My rating of the book is two Mr.Wuest thumbs up! I would recommend this book to strong 5th grade readers up to 7th grade.
