Item description for Under the Radar: The Spy Drone Adventure by Blaine C. Readler...
Jared believes he's found every kid's dream when he unwittingly steals a miniature spy drone. What he and his sarcastic friend Russell don't realize, however, is that while they are exploring spaces too small for even a mouse or eavesdropping from the coat collar of a criminal, there are others who want the spy drone for their own, sinister purposes and will stop at nothing to get it. Caught between rogue terrorists and an overzealous military intelligence officer, the boys must use the tiny drone to thwart the terrorist's plans and reveal the true nature of the military agent. Based on real technology and bubbling over with spy suspense, this tale of two friends and their discoveries explores the importance of friendship, discerning right from wrong, and the risks it is sometimes necessary to take for justice.

Great Vacation Read Nov 1, 2006
I took this book along on vacation and it was perfect bedtime reading. Lots of action and suspense-- a real page-turner. The heroes of this book are smart, independent kids and it's great fun reading about their adventures with the "spy drone".
Gerald's view Jun 13, 2006
I really enjoyed this book! I thought it was one of the better books I have read in a long time. When a book keeps the reader saying "I'll read one more chapter before I do this or this", you know you got your reader hooked. The main thing I liked about the book was the flow. Something important or exciting was always happening to keep the reader enthused. The descriptiveness was excellent. It gave me enough to create my own images what was happening and the senario but did not leave me, as I may say, "ho hum" with the book, because some writers over describe to the detail that they lose the reader. I liked the idea where I got half way thru the book and thought the story was over then noticed I had quite a few pages left to cover. This made me even more curious to continue. Overall, the whole context was so believeable, and in real life could possibly happen, that it made it even more enticing to read. Again, I fully enjoyed the book and recommend it.
