The blog for books and movies

When seventh grader Georges (the s is silent) moves into a Brooklyn apartment building, he meets Safer, a twelve-year-old coffee-drinking loner and self-appointed spy.

Georges becomes Safer’s first spy recruit. His assignment? Tracking the mysterious Mr. X, who lives in the apartment upstairs. But as Safer becomes more demanding, Georges starts to wonder: how far is too far to go for your only friend?

  1. I really liked the book Liar & Spy because it was very mysterious. My favourite part of this book was at the end when everything became clear and all the secrets came out. My favourite character was Georges (with a silent s), the protagonist, because he is having a hard time at home and at school where he struggles to make friends. When he makes a friend in his apartment you feel happy for him, when he gets bullied at school you feel protective of him and when he finds out the lies his friend has been telling him you feel sorry for him. He is a character that you always feel for. My least favourite part of the book is when he gets bullied at school because he isn’t sure what to do or who to talk to. If I could change something I would change the ending because it got a bit confusing and hard to understand. I would recommend this book to anyone who wanted to read a good mystery with a twist.
