The Recruit
by Robert Muchamore

Number 1 bestselling series, CHERUB celebrates its 10th Anniversary with brand new covers!

Now is your chance to start right back at the beginning with The Recruit.

A terrorist doesn't let strangers in her flat because they might be undercover police or intelligence agents, but her children bring their mates home and they run all over the place. The terrorist doesn't know that one of these kids has bugged every room in her house, made copies of all her computer files and stolen her address book. The kid works for CHERUB.

CHERUB agents are aged between ten and seventeen. They live in the real world, slipping under adult radar and getting information that sends criminals and terrorists to jail.

For official purposes, these children do not exist.

The Recruit has also been selected for World Book Night 2014

I see Robert Muchamore's books all the time, and I even own a signed copy of his new book, Rock War. And yet, this is the first book in one of his hugely popular series, we always have it in stock at work, and I see it around all the time, and yet I still haven't managed to pick up a copy and read it for myself.
Fortunately, a friend of mine is a World Book Night giver for this book this year, so we shall be trading WBN books and I will have a copy! Looking forward to being able to read it.

What's on your wishlist this week? Let us know in the comments below, or link to your own Wishlist Wednesday post in the Linky :) 

As it's World Book Night today in the UK, and I am a giver for The Humans by Matt Haig, I decided to get in contact with the publishers of this wonderful book, and they have supplied one paperback copy of the book, on top of my WBN books, to give away on Pen to Paper in celebration of this fantastic bookish event!
Here's what's up for grabs:

The Humans by Matt Haig

Goodreads synopsis:
The critically acclaimed author of The Radleys shares a clever, heartwarming, and darkly insightful novel about an alien who comes to Earth to save humans from themselves.

“I was not Professor Andrew Martin. That is the first thing I should say. He was just a role. A disguise. Someone I needed to be in order to complete a task.”

The narrator of this tale is no ordinary human—in fact, he’s not human at all. Before he was sent away from the distant planet he calls home, precision and perfection governed his life. He lived in a utopian society where mathematics transformed a people, creating limitless knowledge and immortality.

But all of this is suddenly threatened when an earthly being opens the doorway to the same technology that the alien planet possesses. Cambridge University professor Andrew Martin cracks the Reimann Hypothesis and unknowingly puts himself and his family in grave danger when the narrator is sent to Earth to erase all evidence of the solution and kill anyone who has seen the proof. The only catch: the alien has no idea what he’s up against.

Disgusted by the excess of disease, violence, and family strife he encounters, the narrator struggles to pass undetected long enough to gain access to Andrew’s research. But in picking up the pieces of the professor’s shattered personal life, the narrator sees hope and redemption in the humans’ imperfections and begins to question the very mission that brought him there.
