Friday Meme’s ~ How I Became a Spy
Since there are a few Friday Meme’s that I want to participate in I have decided to post them all in one post.
Book Beginnings is hosted by Rose City Reader. Take the first sentence of your current read and post it.
From the award-winning author of The Great Trouble comes a story of espionage, survival, and friendship during World War II.
Bertie Bradshaw never set out to become a spy. He never imagined traipsing around war-torn London, solving ciphers, practicing surveillance, and searching for a traitor to the Allied forces. He certainly never expected that a strong-willed American girl named Eleanor would play Watson to his Holmes (or Holmes to his Watson, depending on who you ask).
But when a young woman goes missing, leaving behind a coded notebook, Bertie is determined to solve the mystery. With the help of Eleanor and his friend David, a Jewish refugee–and, of course, his trusty pup, Little Roo–Bertie must decipher the notebook in time to stop a double agent from spilling the biggest secret of all to the Nazis.
From the author of The Great Trouble, this suspenseful WWII adventure reminds us that times of war call for bravery, brains and teamwork from even the most unlikely heroes.
This is one I need to start soon. 🙂
I wasn’t thinking about becoming a spy that night. I was just trying to be brave, do a good job, and stay out of trouble. It wasn’t going well.
Now that is an intro that makes me curious. 🙂
The Friday 56 is hosted by Freda @ Freda’s Voice. It’s like Tuesday Teaser but you have a specific place in your read that you have to turn in your read (page 56 or 56%) to get your teaser.
Learning to be a spy isn’t easy. You have to think about each and every detail. I tried to remember what I’d read about surveillance in the notebook that morning.
I am sure it’s not easy and especially not for a kid!
Book Blogger Hop is hosted by Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer. Each week we are asked a question to answer so it reminds me a bit of FF and so I thought it made a good fit to my other Friday Memes.
What’s your favourite bookish accessory that’s NOT a book?
I don’t have a lot of bookish things, so I guess my bookmark collection.
