    This is the story of Ali Cross Alex Cross young son who wants to become a detective, just like his father, and work towards protecting his community He thought he would have to wait much longer to follow on his father s footsteps, but after one of his friends disappears, he decides to investigate the disappearance and won t stop until he finds his friend.I have yet to read an Alex Cross book, though there are many to choose from But I quite enjoyed meeting him in this book, as well as his This is the story of Ali Cross Alex Cross young son who wants to become a detective, just like his father, and work towards protecting his community He thought he would have to wait much longer to follow on his father s footsteps, but after one of his friends disappears, he decides to investigate the disappearance and won t stop until he finds his friend.I have yet to read an Alex Cross book, though there are many to choose from But I quite enjoyed meeting him in this book, as well as his son Ali Cross of course One of the things that make this book interesting and perhaps unlike other middle grade books out there is the presence of a dual point of view that includes Ali Cross and his father Alex Cross.I found that unique and interesting When we re not reading about the investigation and other things through Ali Cross eyes, we re reading about it through his father s, an experienced detective Both POVs are enjoyable, written well, add something to the story overall and are different enough to justify being included There are no repetitions and it s rather difficult to dislike the story because the characters are easy to invest oneself in The case itself may not blow your mind but it s a decent first case for Ali Cross Hopefullyare to come Blog Youtube Twitter Instagram Google Bloglovin

    James Patterson has a new treat for his young adult read teen fans with this long awaited debut featuring Ali Cross Many longtime Patterson fans will know of Alex Cross and his youngest yet also precocious son, Ali, who sees things outside of the box While the entire Cross clan is gathered for Christmas, Ali has other things on his mind His friend, Gabe, is missing and no one seems to be doing much about it Ali wants nothingthan to help find his close friend, but the case seems to b James Patterson has a new treat for his young adult read teen fans with this long awaited debut featuring Ali Cross Many longtime Patterson fans will know of Alex Cross and his youngest yet also precocious son, Ali, who sees things outside of the box While the entire Cross clan is gathered for Christmas, Ali has other things on his mind His friend, Gabe, is missing and no one seems to be doing much about it Ali wants nothingthan to help find his close friend, but the case seems to be gathering little but a peppering of snow over the holiday season If that were not enough, his father, Dr Alex Cross, is facing assault charges for a recent arrest that left a suspect in a coma after a fall While the Cross family remains strong, Ali cannot help but wonder if he needs to doto help the situation He enlists the help of his father, as well as his step mother, Bree Stone, to get some answers and to help fill in some of the blanks around Gabe s location Then, it s time to enter the world of the tween, where social media and gaming takes over, allowing Ali to discover some new and disturbing clues that could help him with his search As Alex is distracted with his own worries, young Ali takes a gamble or two to save his friend Problem is, like his father, Ali sometimes forgets to put his safety first, which could have dire consequences When Ali is able to reach Gabe through a video game they enjoy, this only leads tocomplications and places both boys in a heap of trouble A stellar piece by Patterson that will surely loop in a new generation of Cross fans, with a story that is equally appealing to those who have long enjoyed anything with CROSS in the title Recommended for young and not so youthful readers looking for a great mystery, as well as Alex Cross fans who want a dose of something a little less intense.I recently finished James Patterson s latest Alex Cross novel, which saw an increase in Ali s presence It felt fitting to turn to this shorter piece to give Ali his time in the spotlight and to see if younger readers were getting the same intensity in their novels related to this DC family Patterson does well to pull a new set of Cross fans in, setting a mystery with Ali in the middle Ali Cross is a middle schooler who has all the tools to live a 21st century life, including an online presence that keeps him in touch with his friends However, he has Cross blood in his veins and if he is not going to excel in athletics like his siblings, he might as well take up sleuthing The reader can see this throughout this piece, as Ali Cross comes into his own He loves a good mystery and has the empathy to make his work mean something Other characters help pave the way to a successful story, including Alex Cross, which enriches the entire reading experience While it is hard to place this on the Alex Cross timeline of books, there is surely a little character development for Alex and Ali, though it might be in a vacuum and not entirely in line with the chronology of the larger Cross series if that makes sense as I pen it now The story was strong and helped introduce the reader to Ali Cross in such a way that readers will want to knowWith some eerie goings on in the Alex Cross series and a few hints that Ali Cross has not tripped on his only mystery, Patterson keeps readers of all ages wondering what will come next in the Cross saga and how long until Ali takes over the spotlight, letting Alex relax and fade into the role of advisor, rather than feet on the ground detective.Kudos, Mr Patterson, for another great piece in the Cross series This one has remained solid and I do wish you would focus on those pieces that are stellar, rather than mass producing every idea brought to your feet, for money and acclaim.Love hate the review An ever growing collection of others appears at Book for All Seasons, a different sort of Book Challenge

    Ali Cross is something of an Alex Cross book for kids Ali is Alex Cross s youngest child He s a whip smart and precocious middle schooler When Ali s friend Gabe goes missing, Ali decides to conduct his own investigation into his disappearance Meanwhile, Alex is on desk duty while awaiting trial for an accident that happened to a civilian while on the job.While written with children in mind, the whole Cross family appears in the book I do think it is something every Alex Cross fan will want Ali Cross is something of an Alex Cross book for kids Ali is Alex Cross s youngest child He s a whip smart and precocious middle schooler When Ali s friend Gabe goes missing, Ali decides to conduct his own investigation into his disappearance Meanwhile, Alex is on desk duty while awaiting trial for an accident that happened to a civilian while on the job.While written with children in mind, the whole Cross family appears in the book I do think it is something every Alex Cross fan will want to read, especially those of us who are completists

    I might have liked this kids book a little too much It was fun and light It was also basically a Cross book Patterson always includes the family in the Alex Cross novels and this was no different Ali was a pretty good lead It was a nice little change of pace, even if it was familiar The mystery was simple and straight forward and that was just fine I ll read the next one, which knowing Patterson, is sure to come out sooner than later.

    I loved most of this but there were some real holes in the story Ali, son of Alex Cross, is going to appeal to MG readers and perhaps provide some crossover to other mystery thriller writers His caring about his missing friend and determination to find him is appealing, but there s where the holes are surely the police would have been a littleinvolved Either a missing person s report was filed by the parents or it wasn t If it was, wouldn t they have interviewed Ali and if not, would I loved most of this but there were some real holes in the story Ali, son of Alex Cross, is going to appeal to MG readers and perhaps provide some crossover to other mystery thriller writers His caring about his missing friend and determination to find him is appealing, but there s where the holes are surely the police would have been a littleinvolved Either a missing person s report was filed by the parents or it wasn t If it was, wouldn t they have interviewed Ali and if not, wouldn t they have said something to him about the parents claiming he s ok so confusing There s a substory about Alex being sued by the family of a man he possibly shoved and put in a coma Alex says he slipped I have no idea if this is part of a story from the Alex Cross books, but it won t matter to MG readers because it s explained well enough for them without requiring them to have read another book.ARC provided by publisher

    Although Ali Cross has been identified as a Jimmy book I am hoping this is the beginning of a new series Ali Cross is a young novice investigator who admires his Dad, Alex Cross, a major character in a series of novels by James Patterson Enjoyed the interchange between Ali and Alex Cross Great insight into becoming a novice investigator.

    I was so excited to finally get to read this book as I have been waiting for ages for it to be released as months before I had read an article that spoke about how James Patterson was finally writing a book with Ali as the main character Out of all the Cross family, I have always had a soft spot for Ali as he is a mini Alex and always been a fun character He has always been full of life and had some intelligent conversations and quips in the Alex Cross series Ali Cross dreams of being a detec I was so excited to finally get to read this book as I have been waiting for ages for it to be released as months before I had read an article that spoke about how James Patterson was finally writing a book with Ali as the main character Out of all the Cross family, I have always had a soft spot for Ali as he is a mini Alex and always been a fun character He has always been full of life and had some intelligent conversations and quips in the Alex Cross series Ali Cross dreams of being a detective just like his dad and now when his best friend Gabriel Squalls goes missing and the police keep hitting dead ends, Ali sees this as his chance to finally get to do some investigating to find his friend as he knows he s alive whereas everyone else has written him off as we all know the first twenty four hours of a missing person is the most vital time to find them and any time after that, it can become a lost cause as every day that ticks by is a day closer to them being found dead Ali Cross also features a storyline of Alex Cross being on trial for assault and accused of being a dirty cop and being Christmas time, tensions are high in the Cross Family house Ali Cross was a fun read and the perfect companion read for all fans of Alex Cross series no matter what age you are, as previous fans will get a kick out of reading a teen Ali Cross

    Another Great Book I have read many books by James Patterson and this new one is a good one.When I heard that the story was about Alex s son, I thought it would be a Children s story How wrong I was It started out right away as a thriller And kept my attention throughout the book.I would recommed the book to everyone.
