Spy School

Spy School

by Stuart Gibbs

Can an undercover nerd become a superstar agent? Ben Ripley sure hopes so, and his life may depend on it. He may only be in middle school, but he's already pegged his dream job: C.I.A. or nothing! Unfortunately, Ben is so nerdy and awkward that he can barely get to school and back without a mishap. Then he is recruited for a magnet school with a focus on science that's actually a front for a junior C.I.A. academy. Could the C.I.A. really want him?

Ben is hopeful. Unfortunately, it's a case of mistaken identity. But it gives him a chance to try his hand at being a super-cool undercover agent, the kind that always gets the girl. After a series of hilarious misadventures, Ben realizes he might actually be a halfway decent spy, if he can survive all the attempts being made on his life!
