Description

"listeners looking for a quick action story will find that Reid's novel paired with Free's skilled narration provides a pleasurable listening experience." - AudioFile Magazine From beloved YA author Kimberly Reid comes an exciting new audiobook that will speak to young listeners. A CIA prodigy's cover is blown when he accidentally becomes an internet sensation in #Prettyboy Must Die, a fun, fast thriller inspired by the #Alexfromtarget story. When Peter Smith's classmate snaps a picture of him during a late night run at the track, Peter thinks he might be in trouble. When she posts that photo-along with the caption, "See the Pretty Boy Run,"-Peter knows he's in trouble. But when hostiles drop through the ceiling of his 6th period Chem Class, Peter's pretty sure his trouble just became a national emergency. Because he's not really Peter Smith. He's Jake Morrow, former foster-kid turned CIA operative. After a massive screw-up on his first mission, he's on a pity assignment, a dozen hit lists and now, social media, apparently. As #Prettboy, of all freaking things. His cover's blown, his school's under siege, and if he screws up now, #Prettyboy will become #Deadboy faster than you can say, 'fifteen minutes of fame.' Trapped in a high school with rabid killers and rabid fans, he'll need all his training and then some to save his job, his school and, oh yeah, his life.

Professional reviews

"After a failed mission in Ukraine, Peter, a teen CIA operative, finds himself removed from active duty and enrolled in a prestigious academy to finish high school. Narrator Kevin Free's Ukrainian accents are replaced by a variety of American and British ones as Peter heads to Colorado, enjoying anonymity until an unwanted photo suddenly exposes him online. Free highlights Peter's training using a steady pace in both action and expository scenes, demonstrating Peter's cool head even as their school is invaded by hostiles with an unknown purpose. Though the idea of teen spies could seem completely implausible, listeners looking for a quick action story will find that Reid's novel paired with Free's skilled narration provides a pleasurable listening experience.
