This book was very well-written. Officially, my new favorite book ! I can’t wait to read the next book in this series: I Am The Mission!

I Am The Weapon


Zach is a trained assassin. When he was little, he was kidnapped and taken away from his real parents. Zach works for a society called The Program. The Program basically takes normal kids and turns them into assassins. Zach’s new parents send him confidential emails with his next target and the rest is up to him.

Zach’s next target is the Mayor. Zach enrolls at the Mayor’s daughter’s high school as Ben. The mayor’s daughter, Sam, falls in love with Ben and he wonders how he can kill Sam’s father.

Ben has many opportunities but there is something keeping him from killing Sam’s father. Is it his feelings for Sam or is it that he feels that something is out of place? Whatever it may be, it is keeping him from completing his mission and he doesn’t like this.

When Ben finally feels ready to finish his mission, Sam tells him that her ex-boyfriend is in town and that Ben’s life is in danger. Ben doesn’t want to leave Sam but she insists. When Ben is leaving, he notices people trailing him but he doesn’t know why.

Ben is about to discover something that will change his life.
