Alibi Junior High
Thirteen-year-old Cody Saron speaks five languages and has traveled to every corner of the globe with his father, an undercover CIA agent. Cody knows how to pick a lock or follow a trail, but he has no idea how to fit in with regular kids, or how to make it through a day of junior high. When the danger surrounding Cody’s dad heats up, Cody is sent to stay with his aunt in her small Connecticut suburb and must adapt to this foreign world of normal life. Author Greg Logsted weaves humor and heart with thrilling action and unexpected twists in this original, quirky, fish-out-ofwater story.
Cody has grown up travelling throughout the world with his father, in a rather unusual capacity. You see, his father is in the CIA and Cody has been training all of his first 13 years to help him out. With an unknown enemy tracking his father, Cody is sent to live with his Aunt Jenny in Conneticut. Yes, Cody now has to learn that maybe arms smugglers weren't the best practice for learning to navigate a suburban junior high. The school bus, the clothes, the girls...all of it is foreign to Cody. This was a very cute fish out of water story, with a little action to boot.
