If you’re looking for a novel full of mystery and adventure then “Cue for Treason” written by Geoffrey Trease is just right for you! A teenage boy, Peter Brownrigg, is on the run from a horrible man named Sir Philip Morton. As he goes around England as a travelling actor, he meets many people along the way and realizes many things in this adventure. When he gets himself into some trouble, he overhears a treasonous plot. How is Peter supposed to save the Queen when everyone thinks that teenagers are just fools? Will the Queen actually get saved or end up murdered as planned?
I personally enjoyed reading this book. I really like how this teaches us a lot of European histories without knowing you’re already learning as you read on. Before reading this book, I thought it would have been very difficult for me to understand since it takes place back in Elizabethan Era and the way they spoke would’ve been different but I was wrong. The novel is actually very easy to understand since Geoffrey Trease decided not to write it in the way they spoke back then but into something we could understand now. The title of the book would make sense as you get to the point where Peter overhears a treason being planned. But once you’ve figured out the meaning, the title of this book is quite clever. This is a book that won’t disappoint you at all! It’s full of surprises and unexpected outcomes. I would highly recommend this novel!

An exciting plot line, although unrealistic at times, is a great read overall. Recommended for young adults and adults.

Read this for English class in grade nine. All throughout ther book I wanted to dunk my head in a toilet and keep it submerged; it's a vertiable mystery as to why the schools keep crud like this on their shelves.

A lot of action! He always just escaped though, which is unrealistic.

This book is fantastic! I loved it the whole way through. Geoffrey Trease really has a tallent for writting clearly, humoristicaly and realistically. You really get dragged in since Peter Brownrigg seem so real only with the written words of this incredibly creative writer. Everything is unnexpected and charming in this book.

I recommend this novel for absolutelly EVERYONE, no matter what some distastefull teen tells you (experience). If you loved this book, check out the Tom Marlowe Adventure series and Nine Days a Queen. They are also a very exiting books.
