* SheatheYourSword: Played straight more often than not. Trying to take most threats head-on tends to end pretty badly for you. Justified in that "you" are usually a pre-teen kid, while the things that want to kill you, well, ''aren't''.

* EscapistCharacter: Not usually, since your character's just a generic kid in most books, but there are exceptions. ''You Are A Superstar'' is one of the more noticeable exceptions, though.

* AmbiguousGender:Except for a few books that need for you to be a certain gender to work (such as one where you are part of a Women's Olympic swim team) [[note]] ''The Gold Medal Secret'' [[/note]], your gender is presumably your own gender, even if the pictures show you as one or the other

** ''Your Code Name is Jonah'' (reissued as Spy Trap) is a very cynical Cold War era entry into the series. You are in the role of a definitely adult government agent. Your antagonists are KGB (in other words, the Russians). The dialogue is very adult, including a memorable, very politically spiked conversation with the wife of a kidnapped scientist. She basically gives you a ReasonYouSuckSpeech if you defend the government's policy concerning the military importance of the whalesong tapes. Your character basically brushes her off as a [[AnimalWrongsGroup pompous liberal windbag]]. Interestingly enough, in one of the endings, you are told by your boss, "If you have to let your conscience be your guide, you'll never make it as a spy!".
