Publisher's Summary

Walking around New York City was what Mitty Blake did best. He loved the city, and even after 9/11, he always felt safe. Mitty was a carefree guy - he didnt worry about terrorists or blackouts or grades or anything, which is why he was late getting started on his Advanced Bio report. Mitty does feel a little pressure to hand something in. If he doesnt, he'll be switched out of Advanced Bio, which would be unfortunate since Olivia's in Advanced Bio. So he considers it good luck when he finds some old medical books in his familys weekend house that focus on something he could write about. But when he discovers an old envelope with two scabs in one of the books, the report is no longer about the grade...it's about life and death. His own.

Code Orange

I liked it. It was quite interesting. Great narrator 😄. Some parts were a bit boring. Besides that the book was pretty good.

Bought it for my son, but we all enjoyed it

Would you consider the audio edition of Code Orange to be better than the print version?

My son is an auditory learner, and this helped him to better understand and read the assigned novel.

Any additional comments?

Even though I bought this audiobook to help my son with his assigned reading for school, my whole family listened because the story and presentation was good and interesting.

Good teen, not tween book

My 8 yr old and 12 yr old listened to this book. My 12 yr old has to be forced into reading and becuase of the accent and a minor language barrier, I had to stop the book several times to explain what a phrase meant or what a word means. My 8 yr old loves to read and would stay interested during action sequences but when the book would go into background information it was to advanced. Both had trouble putting past clues together with the clues uncovered toward the end of the book.

The book had great action and a great story, I would suggest this book someone who is able to think back to past clues uncovered by the hero and come to their own possible conclusions before the hero does. Thats the fun of uncovering a mystery!

A perfect choice for my 7th grade science class!

If you could sum up Code Orange in three words, what would they be?

Anxious, Hopeful, Triumphant

What did you like best about this story?

The strong character of the protagonist. He is the epitome of an All-American boy with a hero's heart.

What about Jeremy Beck???s performance did you like?

The performance was smooth and clear. Very nice job.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

It had very funny parts! Also, if it doesn't make you want to cry at the end, you will certainly get warm fuzzies!

Any additional comments?

I used this to teach infectious disease to my 7th grade science class. They're a tough sell and they LOVED it!

Olivia: She's hilarious.

Which scene was your favorite?

When Mitty sang in the library.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Not really.

Any additional comments?

This is a great read for middle school students. Lots of academic vocabulary.

Amazing book!


The only thing I disliked-being a teenage girl-was that Mitty and Olivia never dated. The last thing to happen with them was a confession of love by Olivia, that's it. It was disappointing that Mitty never told her why he didn't return gratitude. I had to read this book for school, hate reading, and I had not read a thing even though I had a test over the book so adioble helped me by fib nudging the book in a day and not having to read it myself.

Seemed to not really be going anywhere for me

Never seem to get to the point. Just seemed like it was rambling about nothing
