Like many kids, Ben Ripley imagines life as a secret agent would be pretty awesome -- so when he learns he's been recruited to the C.I.A.'s top secret Academy of Espionage, it sounds too good to be true.  And it is.  From the moment he arrives -- and ends up in the middle of an enemy attack -- Ben finds Spy School is going to be far more difficult, dastardly and dangerous than he expected.  Even worse, he soon discovers that he hasn't been recruited to become a top agent; instead, he's been brought in as bait to catch a devious double agent.  Now, Ben needs a crash course in espionage so that he can catch the mole, prove his worth -- and get the girl.  It won't be easy, but it'll be a very fun -- and very funny -- ride.

Spy School is a classic! It is a book for all ages, but there are a few swears. It is about this guy names Ben Ripley who gets selected to train in the CIA academy for spys-in-training but what Ben does not know is that he is bait for the bad guys... Join Ben Ripley as he uncovers secrets and finally in the end, finds the mole! I really enjoyed how Stuart Gibbs made everything fall into place in the end! Hope you like this review!

I loved this amazing book by Stuart Gibbs! It is full of twists and turns, really funny and exciting! If you are bored and want a really good book to read, you should definitely read this! Though if you are under 8 years old, your parents probably might say that there is too much romance.

Great book if you're looking for an intriguing mystery, that will have you with the answer right under your nose.

I think it's a really good book that's perfect for any people who want to be spies. ;) It's also really funny and intriguing because the main character basically leads a double life. In one, he's an average guy. In the other, he's a spy who keeps getting selected for missions. (honestly, it's kinda sus.) Read the book to find out why! :)

I've read this book more than I've read any other book in my life. It is such a light read, I read this whenever I am bored or in the car. It's funny and I like Ben and Erica's dynamic, however one-sided it may be. Would definitely recommend.

this book is amazing ! if you like mystery books this is the book for you it just gets you to read and read all day long and it doesn't EVER get you bored . I loved this book and I think it is AMAZING!

Don’t get me wrong this book is AMAZING and you DO have to read it (along with every other book in the series) but, the Spy School series is a bit repetitive and it usually goes something like this: an evil group of people try to do something bad Ben going into the seen as bait, usually without realizing. There is an obstacle the have to get around, nobody can figure out there plan but Ben figures it at at the last minute. The world is saved! Although this is the mane gists I totally recommend.

Best espionage book of all time, so good I read the whole series! A MUST-READ for all kids who like action, comedy, romance, and a little bit of mystery. This book is for sure going to keep you turning the pages. ;)

This book was soooo good I finished it yesterday and can't wait to get the 2nd one!!!
