Thirteen-year-old Danny Schumacher thought middle school would be perfect. He’s popular, athletic, and in class with his best friends, including the girl of his dreams, Hannah Crawford. Everything was going great... Until the new kid, Ray Fletcher, showed up.

Ray knows no one and latches onto Hannah with an unhealthy obsession. At first, Danny and his friends shrug off Ray’s quirkiness and fixation as nothing more than wanting to fit in. But with each passing day, their tolerance wanes while their frustration flourishes.

With the annual Halloween costume dance approaching, Danny, Hannah, and their friends plan to teach Ray Fletcher a lesson he’ll never forget!

Mirroring Edgar Allan Poe’s classic, “The Cask of Amontillado,” and the emotional journey of Fortunado and Montressor, “Fortunate” navigates the emotional roller coaster that is being a teenager in middle school, and the dark places fear and jealousy can take us.

Alex Rider will soon be a star in his very own TV series! 

The world’s greatest teen spy is back in action in a thrilling new mission: destroy once and for all the terrorist organization SCORPIA. Americans may have purchased more than 6 million copies of Alex's adventures, but now, more than ever, we all need his heroics.

Following the events of Scorpia Rising, Alex relocates to San Francisco as he slowly recovers from the tragic death of his best friend and caregiver, Jack Starbright, at the hands of terrorists working for SCORPIA. With Jack gone, Alex feels lost and alone, but then, out of the blue, he receives a cryptic email--just three words long, but enough to make Alex believe that Jack may be alive. Armed with this shred of hope, Alex boards a flight bound for Egypt and embarks on a dubious quest to track Jack down.

Yet SCORPIA knows Alex's weakness. And the question of whether Jack is alive soon takes a backseat to a chilling new terrorist plot--one that will play with Alex’s mind as he grasps the magnitude of what is at stake.

From Egypt to France to Wales, from luxury yachts to abandoned coal mines, Alex traverses a minefield of dangers and cryptic clues as he fights to discover the truth. The #1 New York Times bestselling series, perfect for fans of James Bond and Jason Bourne, is back with a vengeance!

Praise for Never Say Die

"Once again amid races, chases, hails of bullets, and increasingly spectacular explosions, the teenage James Bond pulls off one awesome feat of derring-do after another. [This] fresh caper . . . roars along to a (naturally) explosive climax."—Booklist

"In his usual breakneck fashion, Horowitz whisks Alex from one improbable situation to another . . . this installment is sure to please Alex's legions of fans."—Kirkus Reviews
