CHERUB is a branchof British Intelligence. Its agents are aged between ten and seventeen years. Cherubs are mainly orphans who have been taken out of care homes and trained to work undercover. They live on CHERUB campus, a secret facilit y hidden in the English countryside.

Quite a lot. Nobody realises kids do undercover missions, which means they can get away with all kinds of stuff that adults can’t.

Aboutthree hundred children live on CHERUB campus. Among the agents are fifteen-year-old JAMES ADAMS and his t welve-year-old sister LAUREN. Their friends include BRUCE NORRIS, ANDY LAGAN and Lauren’s on-off boyfriend ‘R AT’ R ATHBONE.
