"I absolutely love the book Scorpia by Anthony Horowitz. This book is a great read for those who love action and suspense. Scorpia is about a boy named Alex Rider who is sent on a mission to gain intel on a corporation known as SCORPIA (Sabotage Corruption Intelligence Assassination). Alex first finds a top secret area where he meets a woman named Julia Rothman who is in fact the leader of SCORPIA. She then asks Rider if he would like to be trained so that he may become a member of SCORPIA. Alex Rider agrees and he is sent on a mission to eliminate a woman by the name of Mrs. Jones. When he comes to kill her and has the gun aimed at her, he slightly moves his hand so that the bullet misses her. Without even realizing, we come to find out that there is a bulletproof sheet of glass between the two, so even if Rider had shot the bullet it would not have killed Jones. He is then questioned by MI6, the organization Alex works for, so that they can obtain Rider's intel. He is then sent on another mission and Rider finds out about Scorpia's operation named Invisible Sword. Basically this operation is planning to kill thousands of English school children, however, Rider stops the operation and saves numerous lives. In the end Rider is shot with a sniper round, but he lives the assassination attempt. I highly reccomend this book to readers of all ages!"

    " Scorpia was a great, entertaining, and action pact book. On a scale from one to ten this book would be a ten. Scorpia is a book in my favorite book series, the Alex Rider series. My favorite caracter is always Alex because he is so brave and knows how to fight. The genre of this book is action and adventure. Anthony Horowitz is one of my altime favorite authors. I like how the author writes it as everyone is innocent but then there ends up to be a bad guy. The Alex rider series is so cool because there is always a hint of mystery. I definently recomend this book more for guys but girls might also like it. My favorite part of the book is when Alex finaly finds his destiny. I was really suprised when Alex found out what his dad really was. This was one of my favorite Alex Rider books of all time. In this book there was alot of mystery whick really keeps you on the edge of ur seat. I really enjoied this Alex Rider book and I hope you will like it to. "

    " I thought this book was probably the most action oriented, but maybe that was due to it being more than twice as long as the other books. I really was interested through out the entire book while I was reading and I recommend it to people who enjoy teenage drama and spies and action. I'm not going to have a summary on this book because I think you all should just go out and buy it! "

    " You will really like the Alex Rider series book Number 5 Scorpia. In this book Akex Rider a 15 year old spy is a spy. you will really like this book because if you have ever wanted adventure you can find it in this book. Alex rider is just simply a book that can be a good story and teacher. It teaches you that even though a person seems normal, there really not. Not one person is the same. You might have the same views but your never the same in your reasoning or thinking process. This story is set in Venice, Italy. London, England. I believe that this story can be a good leason. This is the story of a boy who finds out he has a uncle who is dead now. who was a spy for a secret organization called M16 "
