So, now Alex rider is back at school after missing three weeks, and somehow, he kind of misses all of the action he had of being a hero, so after an incident he decides to make, he gets asked to be an entire different person, on the outside that is, to go undercover into a super expensive school for delinquents out in the mountains. Alex is supposed to live with a wealthy but obnoxious family for a little while, and then go up to the school and find out why they're so good at maturing the delinquents; perhaps a bit too good. They are led by fat Eva Stellenbosch or however you spell it, and a Dr. Grief.
Alex meets a girl named Fiona whom he is forced to live with and pretend to be related, and Fiona is pretty mean to Alex for no apparent reason, being the type who loves shooting animals with her friends because she can. Eventually, they bond a bit, but I doubt we'll see her again. Anyway, we soon learn that this is going to be a prison escape of some sort, and with so many cameras, guards, and even razor wire which will fool nobody, it didn't disappoint me. I feel that this sequel is fresh enough to be better than the first outing, Stormbreaker,
