There's something I just didn't expect to find out about Mr.X. Absolutely a great book.

Liar & Spy is a coming-of-age story dressed up as a mystery. Several mysteries, actually. All unconventional. All delightful.
Author Rebecca Stead finds the interesting in everything, be it Benjamin Franklin's reformed alphabet, peculiar fortune cookies, or the human tongue. It's hard to say where Rebecca ends and Georges (silent S) begins. A bit of Rebecca and Georges lives in all of us, I suspect, which may be why this book feels like time spent with an old friend.
Wait til you hear Jesse Bernstein's portrayal of Safer. It's a hoot. (That's right, a hoot.) It's a strange expression, if you think about it. I wonder what Georges would say about it...

All - in - all, it isnt a bad story at all! A little predicatable and the naration in some places was a little.... errrmmm... questionable, but overall is was fine.
It a memerable book and its fun! It's like an old pair of slipper, warm and kind and nice!
I read a lot of junior fiction in my job (senior school librarian), and this isnt in my top 10, but I would reccommend it to the kids to read.
