For ages 13 and up.
In Disappeared, college student and amateur spy for the CIA,
Sydney Bristow, is on her second mission,
on which she has to pretend to be a dangerous arms
dealer. She goes to Scotland and stay at a
haunted old castle with other arms dealers, and she
is all on her own, unlike in the first book. This is
Sydney needs to use all her spy training to survive.
Although I like the story, this book is not as good as Alias: A
Secret Life. The castle is described very well, but
the rest of the scenery and characters are sketchy.
But this book has enough action and excitement to keep
me reading so I give this book a 3 out of 4.
Alias: A Secret Life
by Laura Peyton Roberts
A Secret Life, is based on the tv show, Alias. In this
book, the main character, Sydney Bristow, is a college
student who also happens to be a spy for the CIA. She gets sent
to Paris to pose as a rich wife of an internet
millionaire so she can find out if a clothing designer
is laundering money is actually corrupt. This is
Sydney's first assignment, so she is nervous at first. She gets into
the assignment well when
she finds out that Noah Hicks, an agent she likes, is
posing as her husband. I gave this book a 4 out of 4
because it kept my interest the entire time. I like
how the author described Paris in detail and how I can
relate to Sydney, even though she is a spy. This book
is well-written and the action is great. I especially
like knowing how a spy works. This is a fun book to
