The Lab Rating: 3


Author: Jack Heath

The world has become corrupt. There is no government and no police to enforce the law. A cruel organization called ChaoSonic holds authority over the city, watching people’s every move and preventing anyone from escaping.


Agent Six of Hearts

A top secret team of special agents known as the Deck strives to bring justice to the city. Agent Six of Hearts is the cream of the crop—he’s the toughest, fastest, strongest agent in the Deck. And he’s only 16 years old. Six of Hearts is a sole operator. He’s rude and short with everyone who tries to show him kindness. But he has a gentle heart—despite his 100% mission success rate, he has never killed a soul. But what happens when he must kill someone to protect his own life?


A Deadly Mission

It’s hard to hide your identity when you’re nearly indestructible. And now the Lab is after him. You see, Agent Six of Hearts isn't exactly human. He’s the product of an experiment performed by the Lab, and now they want him back. If the Deck were to learn the truth about his identity, both he and the King of the Deck would be finished. Six of Hearts has a dangerous mission ahead, but he doesn’t have to go it alone. He has Kyntak, a boy who was born during the same Lab experiment.


The Bottom Line

In the beginning, The Lab by Jack Heath is extremely hard to follow. It’s not until the second of five acts, or “Mission Two,” that the story really starts to take shape. Think of the Alex Rider series with a little less personality. Boys will enjoy the action sequences, but the book won’t appeal to too many girls.

    all it took was one conversation, one look, one smile, one laugh and I was gone. Gone into oblivion. Disappeared  into some alternate universe for just me and him. His eyes were captivating and his words were infectious. As I fell harder the image of myself I once saw was slowly fading to make room for his.. He became everything I wanted. He became my life in more ways than one. I opened up to him. The was way he made it so easy was almost like casting a spell on me. I no longer had control over my own body. It was all him. But soon our love became my love for him..our hearts became further and further apart because little ddid I know our love was non existaant and it was  always just my love. my love that he used to his advantage to get to my heart.. and once he got there he stole it. he stole my heart tore it apart and left me to clean up the mess. He was a criminal.

    So I guess I'll take w shot at this,   I am Mount Everest, Steep, Up and Downs. The world around,  walking all over me,  I am of whispers. A misunderstood mountain, They pray for safety that I won’t kill them That cannot help them.  I am not evil,  I am not a killer, I don’t hurt others for joy. I act strong and hid in the fog, But I can’t always hide. I break, I fall Avalanches occur from my surface.   I don’t mean to kill I don’t mean to break, I’m sorry if you become my victim I don’t mean it I am veiled in the clouds and fog No one knowing how I feel. You may ask, But I never tell I may regret not talking, but you don’t get it. I am misunderstood, I am shown to be strong, I am called mighty, I am high, To most I cannot fall. But no one gets it, I break, I fall, I hurt Just as those who climb me, I feel pain, I suffer   I am a mountain but I do cry Those storms that some die in, They blamed them for testing me I do not mean it I cannot help if I feel pain I am me, I am like you I have hills to climb, Life’s a climb, I am a climb There are steeps to overcome I may not make it, I may fall, I will fall Attempt to get up, May fail   I am not always the strong mountain, The one others come for help I need help to, You may cry to me I cry away from others, hidden I show no emotion, I store it But it explodes, I shatter, I show the true colors of my feelings I fall and it may seem like most ignore There are those who stop and help I am Mount Everest High and Steep, I to have to climb, The Mountain of Life

    Welcome to Kidzworld, how are you? Here are some tips on how to survi- I mean, have a good time. 1, no swearing or saying copyrighted company names. they will just get replaced with hashtags (i.e ####) 2, if you're on chat, no cyberbullying (this one isn't from personal experience, but still!)! 3, if people start to get annoying on chat, just block 'em.
