Lucas Benes is yet again a boy on a mission. After sabotaging a mass kidnapping in Paris, Lucas Benes faces a new and perilous threat from Siba Günerro and her anything-but-good Good Company. When a briefcase-toting kid from the Falkland Islands joins the New Resistance Spy School, 14-year-old Lucas learns the truth about his mother and becomes a boy on a mission. Lucas and friends speed in and around Rome–from the Colosseum to the Vatican–until they stowaway on a cargo ship carrying diamonds that could unlock the secret to Lucas’s past and destroy the Good Company’s future.
Diamonds are for Never is a fun preteen, pretty clean teen story that I found to be a little stupid and predictable, but also fun to read as it brings alive an adventure of a group of young adults with messed up lives.
