I am the Weapon

by Allen Zadoff Year Published: 2013

Boy Nobody is the perennial new kid in school, the one few notice and nobody thinks much about. He shows up in a new high school in a new town under a new name, makes a few friends and doesn’t stay long. Just long enough for someone to die – of “natural causes.” Mission accomplished, Boy Nobody disappears, moving on to the next target. But when the program assigns him to the mayor of New York City, things change. Somewhere deep inside, Boy Nobody is somebody: the kid he once was; the teen who wants normal things, like a real home and a girlfriend; a young man who just wants out. And who just might sabotage the Program’s Mission.
