    4.5 StarsBook three in Mark Cooper’s Jason Steed series is fast, explosive and fun! Jam-packed with kicks and KABOOMS! Jason Steed, our 12 year old blue eyed deadly weapon, jumps right into action in this book with an undercover mission, temper, temper and new places to get into trouble. America! I loved how this book opened. It said “Hello” with family, friends, and humor. It did get a bit choppy and sloppy at times in the middle. (view spoiler)[ Nothing a red pen couldn’t fix. :)(hide spoiler)] But the action gets back on track in a hurry though. As soon as we jump on a jet plane and hit Vietnam, I was hooked. Turning pages faster and faster! Jason’s father and a few others are taken hostage in Vietnam. Tortured and scheduled to be executed if certain demands are not met. Jason cannot lose his father too. With the deadline tick, tick, ticking away, young Jason decides to take matters into his own hands. The wet Vietnam landscape really comes alive in these pages with thick humidity, bug bites, and danger. The way Jason creeps through the land—village by village—all on his own made me proud and angry. Where is his backup? Troops, government, adults for goodness sakes! Someone had to do something to save his father and the other prisoners. Jason IS that someone! The one to step up when no one else would.My favorite moments always seem to be between father and son. Well…Scott had some hilarious moments too (view spoiler)[ Bragging about hair and voices breaking. Haha…. (hide spoiler)]. Scott and Jason form one hell of a spying team! But the strength and tenderness between Jason and his father is the heartbeat of the series for me. So adorable and powerful!”Jason felt strangely relaxed. He knew they were still in great danger but with his father next to him, he felt at ease.”Along with the action and trouble though, is a fun layer of laughs. Jason’s humor really comes out to play even knee deep in the jungle. Jokes and smart aleck one-liners keep Jason and the men going through extreme exhaustion and pain. Jason made me giggle again and again—especially when he asked his father if he could keep Tiny Tim. Haha….What a sweetie! And that right there is what makes Jason Steed such a great character to follow. One minute he is throwing his backpack around in a huff and the next he’s disobeying orders from the highest command. Sometimes the characteristics that make him a bratty little kid can also make him a hero! Go figure. :DThe title of this book, Absolutely Nothing, really didn’t hit me right away. But when it did *deep sigh* it was a huge emotional punch to the gut. A lesson that unfortunately still needs to be taught again and again in this world. What is war good for?Mark Cooper has done it again! Another action packed read! Grenades and guns! Planes to ships! Leeches, mosquitos, and more! There are some truly nail-biting moments in this visit. Be warned, Cooper is not afraid to show death and brutality. And just when I begin to worry that Jason is growing immune to the stress, violence, and blood something happens that squeezes my heart to bits and reminds me that Jason is a 12 year old boy. A boy that needs to learn how to control his temper. A boy who still needs to grow up and goof off. And a boy who needs his father.Go meet Jason Steed. This series is awesome!Just one of my heart tugging moments:”Jason sat back on the floor, looking at the dead soldier horrified. “I never meant to kill him,” he said in a whisper. He looked at his hands and rubbed them on his pants, trying to rid the feel of the man from them.”And one of my biggest laugh-out-loud moments was when Jason was talking tattoos with Cookie…”Will you get some when you’re older?” Cookie asked.“No, tattoos are just images or words like bumper stickers. And you wouldn’t put bumper stickers on a Rolls Royce.” Jason laughed, flexing his small biceps.” Haha….

    What a blockbuster, I enjoy this series Fledgling is my favorite book, when book 2 came out Revenge it was great and I was a little worried about getting this 3rd book, would be be as good as the other 2?Oh YEAH! An amazing fast action book with Jason as our hero, he has just come into puberty and it seems he is getting tougher. There has always been great fight scenes in the series, Absolutely Nothing has just as many, twice Jason over over the top. One scene was just scary "Jason’s entire body started to tremble, his pupils dilated. If they had tried to provoke him, they had finally succeeded and woken a human hurricane with a sting worse than a Fattail Scorpion."The series is great this would make a great movie, now we have to wait for book 4. :(

    I really enjoyed this book. My cousin enjoyed this book as well. In this book Jason is 12 years old. He has a problem. Everyone thinks he is a great agent, but he has a bad temper. And trouble ensures. The biggest complaint that my cousin and I have on this book is the fact it is too short. That is why we gave 4 stars instead of five. It seems that he goes on place and then less than a chapter or so later he is off to somewhere totally different. Besides that we had no problems. Now we can not wait till the fourth book comes out. We want to know what Jason is going to be up to next. More importantly where is he going to go to school.

    Ok, confession time: I really enjoyed this book. It’s completely out of my ‘comfort zone’ and clearly not for my demographic but I found myself absorbed in the story and characters from the get-go.Jason Steed is a character all teenage boys will love. Martial-arts expert, loved by his friends, with flaws and strengths in academia and a nice guy – thumbs up.He’s soon involved in a government mission involving runaway children, espionage and child trafficking. The storyline is surprisingly indepth and well thought out, and Jason works as part of a team to solve the case. It’s great to read a positive novel that puts teamwork, friendship, love and family above all else. In a way, the positive reinforcement of honesty and integrity reminds me of the Harry Potter books.Mark Cooper has done a great job in pulling together the threads of the story and making it believable and workable.The only two things I didn't like about the book was 1) the length (too short!) and 2) the cover. I'm not sure the cover artist does the book justice, but this is my personal taste.I would recommend this for those that like action, adventure, strong characters and solid writing. It was a fluid read and I think most suitable for 11-14yr olds.

    I bought this book for my son and, as usual, I had a quick read through to make sure it was appropriate as not all are! I have to say though that my quick read through turned into a "no darling you can't have it until I've finished".I loved it. The main character is a young boy, aged 12. What I liked about this boy though was that he is portrayed as a responsible young man with strong values and a clear idea of the difference between right and wrong. He is brave, works hard at school, all the things we want our kids to grow up to be. He is also an amazing martial artist and the police frequently call upon him for his help.The plot moves fast and he gets into a lot of scrapes whilst traveling the world. When my son finally got his hands on it he loved it and we are now invested in the series.Nice to have a 'proper' role model for kids at last. Thank you.

    Another high-flying heartpounding adventure. The way characters just get superbly angry doesn’t always ring believable, and the disparity between the level of violence and sexual awareness is very high, but then the kids portrayed are very young indeed and maybe themes will mature as things go on. This is certainly a very, very powerful series of stories for young people who want an action hero. Cooper is a fabulous storyteller.

    I love this series, I read the first 'Fledgling Jason Steed' about 5 years ago, when I was younger but I still love them. I think book 1 will always be my favorite novel, but the series s far has been classics. Jason Steed is now 12 as he gets older controlling his temper seems to be harder for him, he completes a mission to catch a child trafficking ring in the UK. Returning to school is hard for Jason, one minute he is being attacked by assassins the next he is being told off at school for running down a corridor.British special forces and his father agree to send him to America's top military school, it was nice reading how the British see America and how he struggled in school with the different spelling of some words. His father a Royal Navy officer is part of a UN peace keeping force over seeing the withdraw of US troops from Vietnam. (It's 1975).His father and others are captured by the Vietnamese, President Ford will not allow any Americans to step foot and help after the aftermath of the Vietnam war. There fate seems doomed, everyone told Jason not to worry, someone will do something to help.Eventually Jason makes up his mind he is that SOMEONE. Inn typical Jason Steed fashion the adventure takes off and Jason is put threw his paces, the author must really hate Jason because he really puts this poor kid through hell. Not only does Jason find his father he comes across a group of Amerasian children, (Children fathered by US troops from 1965-1975 who are not wanted by the US or the Vietnamese. Jason takes on a rescue mission that upsets the US and puts him in danger from both sides. A fantastic original story that becomes a history lesson, action packed, some funny parts, and an emotional scene that we always seem to get with this series that makes you want to grab the Kleenex. Yes it's a book for boys, but its fun.

    I cannot believe in 2013 someone is still able to write or read such a biased book about a sad chapter of the world history. There has never been a UN peace-keeping force in Vietnam, neither ruthless generals chasing down American fathered children and I thinks it's shameful and awful that American young minds feed themselves with this garbage. It seems I'm the only one noting the disrespect done to Vietnam in publishing this book, but please think about it.
