He goes back to school to pick up his nine-year-old half-sister, Lauren Onions and they eat dinner at a local burger bar. They return home to find Ron gone and Gwen asleep, with multiple missed calls from the school on her phone and a note from the Deputy Head Teacher pushed under the door. Later that night, James discovers that Gwen has died, which he later finds out is due to her consuming alcohol while taking painkillers. A few weeks later, on his twelfth birthday, James is called in to the police station, where he receives a caution for assaulting Samantha Jennings and his teacher, Cassandra Voolt.

The Recruit

To begin, The Recruit is about a boy named James Choke who is frequently bullied at school because of his obese mother. One day James comes home from school after getting in a fight to find his mother dead after drinking whilst on medication. After he and his sister Lauren are moved to a foster home, James wakes up one day in a secret location where kids are trained to become lethal spies. He must foil a major terrorist plan by the environmental terrorist group Help Earth, who plan to kill every major oil baron in the world, all at once. The Recruit is an amazing adrenalin packed book, with a complicated plot, an extensive range of characters and the perfect mix of combat, campus competitiveness and action packed car chases. Robert Mucamore forms a strong emotional attachment to the characters adding even more suspense and enjoyment to shoot-outs, foiling one of the biggest terrorist organisations in the world or just beating the other team in a casual game of paintball.


Robert Muchamore

The organisation recruits orphaned children and trains them as spies. Once qualified, they are used to investigate targets ranging from international terrorists to gang leaders. As children, they are considered innocent by their targets. Basic training is a gruelling, tiresome day course that prepares CHERUBs for the dangers they could face during missions. Once passed basic training, agents take part in missions, before retiring at the age of seventeen. Most notably, The Recruit has won eight literature awards.
