The Alex Rider series is probably targetted at middle grade readers, but I love them. Crocodile Tears is the latest addition to the series which stars Alex Rider, a teenage British boy who, in between school and sports, juggles a few critical missions for MI6. In this story, Alex has to save the world from a meglomaniac who create disasters so that people will donate to his non-profit. What a great plot and the action is fast and brilliant. Fun choice for a family road trip!
