This book is about Ben Ripley who is a student at spy school. He is friends with Erica Hale, who is in the Hale legacy, leading back to Nathan Hale himself. One day in self preservation, he accidentally fires a live cannon round into the principals office. He is sent back to his old school, where he is recruited by evil organization SPYDER. He is sent to spy school, and finds out that Erica put the live round in to get hi sent to spy school, and he is actually on a secret unauthorized mission. He breaks out of Evil Spy School, and he then finds out that SPYDER is trying too shoot missiles into 10 NYC bridges. They then thwart SPYDER´s plans, and Ben is rewarded by being readmitted into spy school.
I found this book on the shelf of my school library two years ago and have never stopped loving this series. The first book was awesome, and the series only got better. To start, Ben Ripley is a twelve-year old with a serious gift for math and a desire to become a CIA spy. One afternoon after school, amazingly enough, there is a CIA agent telling Ben that he is now a spy-in-training. Wonderful, right? Wrong, Ben finds. Spy school is just like middle school, only people are trying to kill you as well. There's no time to be disappointed, though. An enemy organization named SPYDER is surfacing and somehow he's part of the mission. Of course he could die, but he's working with the beautiful and talented Erica Hale. What could go wrong? Find out in the first installment of the stellar series.
So far I have found that Ben has joined the CIA and is now a spy. I am surprised because he is only 12 years old. He also has to fight bad guys, maybe recover stolen documents, spy stuff, etc. He also is basically saving the WHOLE WORLD from evil! This is a thrilling book so far but I have only read part of the beginning. When I finish Spy School I will make a Part 2 of this review. 4/5 stars because I can't give it 5 stars until I finish the book, under my standards. I hope you enjoy this review and stay tuned for P2!
Well, well, well, look what we have here!
This novel took me by surprise.
I've heard that this book is fairly good. People rarely rated it five stars, four was the least.
When I picked up this book, I was expecting something average. Not too good, but not bad.
I am shocked because.............
Lana LIKED this book. I thought the story was original. Not like Hunger Games meets Harry Potter kind of book.
This book stood out from the crowd.
I loved Dash, I loved Violet, and I loved Zan, ( But don't think too much about her appearing mysteriously in his room, It will get creepy fast.
Now, why do you ask did I give it four stars? I do not know, but I felt like something teeny-tiny was missing. I would have given this book 4.5 stars, but that was not an option.
Well there you have it, another AMAZING book by Stuart Gibbs!
