Boy Nobody is the perennial new kid in school, the one few notice and nobody thinks much about. He shows up in a new high school, in a new town, under a new name, makes few friends and doesn't stay long. Just long enough for someone in his new friend's family to die -- of "natural causes." Mission accomplished, Boy Nobody disappears, and moves on to the next target.
When his own parents died of not-so-natural causes at the age of eleven, Boy Nobody found himself under the control of The Program, a shadowy government organization that uses brainwashed kids as counter-espionage operatives. But somewhere, deep inside Boy Nobody, is somebody: the boy he once was, the boy who wants normal things (like a real home, his parents back), a boy who wants out. And he just might want those things badly enough to sabotage The Program's next mission.
This book was a total rollercoaster and I flew through it. There is no time to relax because everytime something is going on or is planned to happen, and you can feel the adrenaline and the tension.
Even this novel is part of a series I think that you can read it as a stand-alone because if you don't mind the ending that leaves a little bit of space for a sequel, then is no other thing that can bothers you. The Hit is a mystery/thriller full of action and suspense, with a smart, witty and strong character that is like a computer. He can do everything, he knows a lot of stuff, he can kill with anything and nothing and he can hide, standing right in front of you.
I don't want to share too much, because I went into this book kind of blind and I really enjoyed it. I think that you should do that too, because is so thrilling and exciting to find answers along with the character. For me this was a great book, in some moments I was so confused because I didn't knew how is going to end and what's gonna happen and who were all those guys.
This book is not for a calm and fluffy time or because you want to read a few chapters. No, this is a book that you read in one sitting, you devour each chapter wanting more and more and being so caught in the story you don't even know when the end is coming. So, if you're searching for an action packed, suspenful read then I highly recommend you to pick this up.
