Honestly, opening this book I thought it would be extremely cliche. It's not. Ben is a normal kid. He's a math nerd. One day out of nowhere, he's recruited to a top secret school run by none other than the CIA. Ben finds out more about why he was picked, and questions his spy potential. The book was very imaginative; it gave descriptions about the "reality" of spies, and strips away some Hollywood glamour. Overall, a fun book.
