Absolute

Older teen boys looking for historical fiction with a bit of action might want to check out the Jack Absolute series. Jack is the self centered sort who may secretly read Shakespeare but ultimately spends most of his time drinking, gambling, and/or wenching. Enlisted by the British Army to work as a spy during the American Revolution — yet sympathetic to the patriot cause — Jack spends most of his time just looking out for himself. This is a straight up adventure story that reads like an 18th century version of James Bond, complete with a bevy of dangerous women and ridiculous chase scenes. Over the top? Certainly. But, never, never boring.
