“Chock-full of fascinating characters and intelligent questions, this is as close to perfect as middle-grade novels come.” --Publishers Weekly
The instant New York Times bestseller from the author of the Newbery Medal book When You Reach Me:
a story about spies, games, and friendship. Seventh grader Georges
moves into a Brooklyn apartment building and meets Safer, a
twelve-year-old self-appointed spy. Georges becomes Safer's first spy
recruit. His assignment? Tracking the mysterious Mr. X, who lives in the
apartment upstairs. But as Safer becomes more demanding, Georges starts
to wonder: what is a lie, and what is a game? How far is too far to go
for your only friend? Liar & Spy will keep readers guessing until the end.
