    My son is very avid reader and loves to tinker with things (re take them apart and try to put them back together stage), and I would love to be able to give this too him before Christmas.

    My son needs one of these books because he’s totally bored with the kind of books that are required reading at school. Gadgets and spy tech should do the trick!

    I have a Young MAKEr in the making – Charlie is 11 years old and loves everything having to do with Alex Rider (his next favorite is “Diary of a Wimpy Kid” – so he covers both ends of the spectrum). He would love it if his old man could score a copy of Eagle Strike!

    My kiddos have read all the Alex Rider books. My daughter is 14 and and son is 11 and she passes her books one to them. Rather you give them one or not I will be getting the next book of the series…. everyone loves a freebie though… especially MOM! :)

    My youngest son hates reading, and struggles with it. I would REALLY love to have this book for him, because I feel that the subject matter would be engrossing enough that he would not spend all of his reading time thinking about how much he hates it. Please help me instill some of my own love of reading into this intransigent child! :)

    Both of my kiddos are really into reading and making things so this would be a huge hit at our house:) Thanks!

    My son would love this. He loves to read, and it would be a great addition to our home library.

    My nephews are avid readers to the point that my brother is constantly looking for books for them to read. This book looks like it would really capture their interest.
