Alex Rider: Stormbreaker by Anthony Horowitz
 

Book Summary

If you picture James Bond as a fourteen-year-old who behaves more appropriately, you have a good image of Alex Rider. The death of his uncle has raised all sorts of questions about who his uncle really was, and why his uncle didn't tell Alex about so much of his secret life. Alex is drawn into an action-packed mystery, whether he wants to be in it or not. This is the first book in a best-selling series.
