Dead Guy Spy by David Lubar
This book has a pretty good plot sequence and flows nicely. This would be a very enjoyable book for many people to read. A good aspect of it was that it gives you a bit of a low-down on what happened in the previous book. I enjoyed this book because it gives on a good idea of all the accidents that can occur in a normal person's day. It gave me a new aspect of life to look at.
Dead guy Spy is about Nathan Abercrombie who got splashed with a substance called hurt be gone that was supposed to make bad feelings go away, but instead turned him into a zombie. On his way to school a person was following him in a bush. When he noticed, the man jumped out of the bush, made his excuses and left. Later in science class he saw a squirrel robot pointing a camera at him through the window. Before he could get a closer look the squirrel had fallen down the telephone pole and exploded. After school Nathan was practicing football with his friend when a bad pass broke off Nathan's finger. Another robot had caught this on camera. A couple days later while Nathan was on the computer in the middle of the night (since he didn't need sleep) he was contacted while playing an online game. The message sent said that he needed to meet with the organization that had been spying on him to see if he was worth recruiting. He meet up with the leader of the organization and found out that they might be able to strengthen his bones since they were so brittle. A couple more days passed and Nathan was contacted to do his first assignment before they strengthened all of his bones. He dropped a transmitter down a pipe in a government facility, or so he thought. This angered Nathan until he heard on the news that a large storage of neurotoxins had been found in an abandoned government facility and this was when Nathan made the final decision to join the group.
