BOY NOBODY by Allen Zadoff (WOW #115)

Posted by on December 5, 2012

Waiting On Wednesday is a meme hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that everyone’s excited about!
Boy Nobody

They needed the perfect soldier: one who could function in every situation without fear, sympathy or anger; who could assassinate strangers and then walk away emotionally unscathed. So they made Boy Nobody-a teen with no name or history. The perfect soldier.

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. But when he’s assigned to the mayor of New York City, things change. The daughter seems so much like him; the mayor smells like his father. And when memories and questions surface, the Program is watching. Because somewhere, deep inside Boy Nobody, is somebody: the kid he once was, the teen who wants normal things like a real home and parents, a young man who wants out. And who just might want those things badly enough to sabotage The Program’s mission.

BOY NOBODY will be released June 11th, 2013 from Little Brown.

What are you waiting on this Wednesday?

  1. Huh this one sounds really intriguing and unique. This whole perfect soldier thing sounds really creepy though. Reminds me of a character in Battle Royale who was like that because he was unable to feel any emotions so he just killed and killed and killed without remorse. FREAKY. Anyway, this sounds really good. :D
