Review: Sometimes, even ordinary kids can save the day. Do you like action and suspense, with humor in between? DO you like spy books? Then Double Vision by F.T. Bradley is just the right book for you. The main character is a boy named Linc Baker.
Linc Baker is an ordinary 6th grader. He has a life with his mother and his father. Normally, you would think that he would have a normal life. Well, you would be wrong. He lately has been getting into a lot of trouble at school field trips, the last one at a chicken farm. This time, he gets in deep trouble and his family is sued. Then, Linc meets these government agents that want him to join them on a top-secret mission. A top agent originally took on this mission, but he went missing so Linc is his double. He will have to make up for the lack of perfectness that the agent, has. How will he get the mission done? Will he get this done? You will have to read the book to find out.
I really enjoyed this book. What I really like about this book is that it is humorous. For example, in the prologue, it talks about how the story isn't about Percy Jackson or Spiderman in a really funny way. It also has some suspense and action, which I like in books, like the moves that the people as they fight, like "The Henry" roundhouse kick. This book has some history into it, like the Mona Lisa in the Louvre museum. This helps us reference what goes on in the book, which helps me understand it better. I think that this book would be acceptable for kids 9-12, but maybe 8 year olds can read this.
