I'm delighted to have found this new author. She has great chops. Her earlier book When You Reach Me was a terrific read as well. Georges solution to bullying brought tears to my eyes. I also liked the way each character's secrets were revealed. This book is touching and funny and a great read. What more can you ask for? I'll be handing this out to all my friends and patrons.

Book description
Summary from the Kindle edition: Seventh-grader Georges adjusts to moving from a house to an apartment, his father's efforts to start a new business, his mother's extra shifts as a nurse, being picked on at school, and Safer, a boy who wants his help spying on another resident of their building.
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0385737432, Hardcover)

An instant New York Times bestseller, Liar & Spy is a story about games and friendship. Seventh-grader Georges moves into a Brooklyn apartment building and meets Safer, a twelve-year-old self-appointed spy. Georges becomes Safer's first spy recruit. His assignment? Tracking the mysterious Mr. X, who lives in the apartment upstairs. But as Safer becomes more demanding, Georges starts to wonder: How far is too far to go for your only friend? 

Like Stead's dazzling Newbery-winner When You Reach Me, Liar & Spy will keep readers guessing until the end.
