I Am the Mission by Allen Zadoff
published by: Little, Brown Books for Young Readers

He was the perfect assassin. Perfect, that is, until he began to ask questions and challenge his orders. Now The Program is worried that their valuable soldier has become a liability. And so Boy Nobody is given a new mission. A test of sorts. A chance to prove his loyalty.
His objective: Take out Eugene Moore, the owner of an extremist military training camp for teenagers. It sounds like a simple task, but a previous operative couldn't do it. He lost the mission and is presumed dead. Now Boy Nobody is confident he can finish the job. Quickly. But when things go awry, Boy Nobody finds himself lost in a mission where nothing is as it seems: not The Program, his allegiances, nor the truth.
I really enjoyed the first book of this series. I reviewed Boy Nobody back in 2013. It tells the story of a orphaned teenaged boy that is recruited by The Program. He is developed into the perfect assassin. One that no one would suspect.
In this book he has to infiltrate a military camp for teens after one of The Program's operatives has gone missing. When he disobeys orders he is cut off from The Program for the first time ever and has no idea what to do. He calls on an old friend and together they search for clues on how to take down the military camp and find The Program.
I Am the Mission was another really good book in this series. Looks like the third book in this series I Am the Traitor came out in 2015. I'm definitely going to have to find that one. This is such a good story line and I can't wait to see how it plays out.
