If the story wasn't so brilliant, great to read, and impossible to put down, I'd throw this book away for it's language. The author clearly states he's going for "the-real-world-feel", but what kind of writer wants to fill kids' minds with swearing and 12 year olds getting passionate about their "girls". It's a bit inappropriate. The story, the whole idea of CHERUB, is great. I love reading the action, the adventures, the scrapes these spy kids get into. But the book definitely has a low standar ...more

This book was originally called The Dealer and my copy goes by that title so I got confused because I was searching for a different title. I was surprised at how many there are in this series when I searched by series title. I'm really into books like I, Q; Alex Rider; and, of course, Cherub Missions. They are all so awesome, I just love the whole teenage spy thing! It sounds so cool! If you like that sort of thing, go for it! The Cherub Missions are absolutely amazing, the first one, Mission: T ...more

This book IS AMAZING! So much more gripping than the the 1st book of the series. This book has made me want to keep reading on. I couldn't put it down and kept myself reading late into the night till early morning! Yet again, I felt very evolved in this story with James and sometimes felt like I was at the scene or wanted to be in the scene. Furthermore, you fell so engaged in the book that you were feeling some of James emotions and helping him throughout the mission. I know at times I was gasp ...more

The book is very exiting with a lot of action and I found it very hard to put the book down.

This book has lots of action, suspense and cliff-hangers at the end of most chapters. It's a great book for anyone who enjoys what I just described. This book is second in it's series. The entire CHERUB series has 12 books in it, starting from The Recruit and ending in Shadow Wave. ( WARNING: SPOILERS) Class A is James Adams' second mission. James works for CHERUB, a secret agency that uses kids as agents instead of adults because they are less suspicious. CHERUB was founded by a man named Charl ...more

I'm so glad that I'm re-reading this series!!!
I remember being a young teen and being so obsessed over Cherub. I wanted to be recruited as well and become badass :)

Also, I must say that, now being almost 22 years-old, I'm seeing things in a different light. There are certain details that I'm not okay with, the first and main one being the fact that these kids act way more mature than they are, and the nasty that goes on on their lives is taken into consideration. What I mean is, sometimes stuff

I loved this book! It's SOOO much better than the first one and I really really liked it! I had higher expectations for this book, so... thank gods it was good enough!
One of the reasons why these books can't be on my "favorites" list is because I have some problems with them... James still bothers me a lot. He can be so immature, sometimes. UGH It's not even funny. Also, some of the other kids can be really stupid ocasionally... I do not like that... at all! Kerry has earned her place as my favo

1. I decided to read this book because the first book got me hooked to this series and I couldn't wait to get this one started.

2. A character I found interesting in this book was Keith Moore. He is the villain of the book who is the biggest drug lord in Europe. This creates an image of a scary thug like man who takes no prisoners, but as James discovers while undercover, he is actually a nice person who cares for other people as well as himself. James finds out that Keith really likes him as a p

The dealer, the next book in the CHERUB series, were James must face is most daring mission yet. His mission, track down some of the world's most dangerous drug dealers. James and his partners must track them down. Now these drug dealers don’t deal it themselves, they find children to deal the drugs for them. Now you may be thinking that this book isn’t really good for teens or young adults because of the drugs, but in the end of the book it really does have a point, and the point is that kids ...more

When I finished reading the first cherub book I never new that it was a huge series, I didn't find out till my mum told me. This book carried on from the first book in the CHERUB series. As I was so hooked into the first book i had to read on or it would be complete torture for me to not read on. This book was not as good as the first book THE RECRUIT. Quite possibly the author Robert Muchamore tried to make a better more action packed book to carry on with the first book but as I was saying; I ...more

Ich finde der zweite Teil von Top Secret ist wirklich sehr sehr gut! Ich habe das buch so gerne gelesen, ich habe garnicht gemerkt wie schnell ich eigentlich vorankam. Aber das ist auch kein Wunder, ich fand die Geschichte so spannend. Erstmal fand ich die Mission super ich habe alle Leute sofort ins Herz geschlossen. Also das James sich mit Junior angefreundet hat. Naja die Umstände sind vielleicht nicht die besten, denn es ist James Mission sich mit dem Sohn von dem Drogendealer der KMG anzufr ...more

This book is called Class A, and it is one of the books in the long Cherub series, written by Robert Muchamore, who is a British book writer, and the creator of the Cherub book series. This book is an adventurous fiction book for teenagers, and it has been written back in the 2004. I chose to read it because my friends recommended it to me, and I've read the previous first book, and I really liked it, so I wanted to continue reading through the series.

I really Enjoyed this book because all the events which took place. It was very deep and I shared a understanding by an event which also took place. Where something was taken from me but i wouldn't dare fight back. It was interesting and creative in ways that happened such as going to Miami, joining the Drug Dealing business and dating Kerry.

Cherub by Robert Muchamore is a very well written book that told a story of an orphaned child taken up by an undercover agency and trained to take down a drug lord. There are many reoccurring topics and themes this book goes over, like the importance of family and trust with other people. Since there was so much action and suspense it kept me reading for a long time without stopping because of being tired. The most shocking part of the book is the fact that James and his teammates deliver under ...more

Theme- “It is hard work to gain someone’s trust, but you can lose it in a blink of an eye”

All of me (John Legend)-
All of me is a song sang by John Legend, and the lyrics explain how the man simply cannot do anything without the girl. However, the girl is already gone, and the man can do nothing but let her go. This song may have connections to my theme, which is “It is hard work to gain someone’s trust, but you can lose it in a blink of an eye,” The two people are no longer together, and the man

My first reason for giving this book a 5 out of 5 stars is because it had lots of action filled moments. The main character, James, gets sent area of England to investigate a drug kingpin. He ends up befriending the kingpin's son Junior to get close enough to take the kingpin down. You could say it is intense. My second reason for my rating is because there is romance.The romance comes in the form of a girl named Kelly. She went through basic training with James and has gradually come to like hi ...more

The book I read is The Dealer. This book is the second of the series called Cherub. I rated this book a 5 out of 5 because it is my favorite of all the books in the Cherub series I have read so far and it is the detective type book that I like. What I also like about the book is that the book has a very good plot. The author of this book and all the other books of the Cherub series is Robert Muchamore. The main character James joins Cherub in the first book, The Recruit. In this book, James goes ...more

In the case James, Kyle, Nicole and Kerry go undercover as teenagers and befriend a successful drug dealer's sons and daughters.

Brief Key Events:

James learn about the bonds that he can develop on a mission with Keith and Junior. He kills his first man through self defence. I particularly did not like that it happened so early within series when he was only 12. I remember in the Alex Rider series, Horowitz held it off 'til the very last book and I quite liked it because Alex is was st

A gripping and intense book can offer an amazing experience to readers. It can transport its audience to a different continent and even alter how they think in their everyday lives. Cherub: The Dealer written by Robert Muchamore and published in 2005 offers this unique occurrence. The book follows James, a young spy, as he takes on missions only previously attempted by highly trained adults. A classic theme told through a young and fresh perspective is joined in this book to produce an excellent ...more

This is my first CHERUB book, although Muchamore does a good job of explaining the concept in the beginning so it's easy enough to jump on board with number 2. This was a good read - straightforward plot that didn't get caught up with too many subplots. In fact there really only is a direct line through the novel. I'm not really sure what age group this is aimed at. James, the main character/agent, is probably 13 (although he has a birthday during the book) but he seems simultaneously older and ...more

I chose to read this book because because I read the first book in the series and I enjoyed it. I also enjoyed this book because it had a good plot and I like the general concept of the CHERUB series.

This fits under my bingo board category "book with a male author"

Class A is the second book in the CHERUB series. it is about a boy called James going on his second undercover mission for his organisation, CHERUB. The reason CHERUB chose kids is that they say "people don't expect kids to be undercov
