Publisher's Summary

Can an undercover nerd become a superstar agent? Ben Ripley sure hopes so - and his life may depend on it!

Ben Ripley may only be in middle school, but he's already pegged his dream job: CIA or bust. Unfortunately for him, his personality doesn't exactly scream "secret agent". In fact Ben is so awkward, he can barely get to school and back without a mishap. Because of his innate nerdiness, Ben is not surprised when he is recruited for a magnet school with a focus on science - but he's entirely shocked to discover that the school is actually a front for a junior CIA academy. Could the CIA really want him?

Actually, no. There's been a case of mistaken identity - but that doesn't stop Ben from trying to morph into a supercool undercover agent, the kind that always gets the girl. And through 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!

    "Swears"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    My kids were horrified the first time someone swore, and I was embarrassed for picking out the book. We had listened to the two Space Case books, but this one is more violent, and not appropriate for little (8 year old) kids to listen to. Not worth the money/credits.


    Has Spy School turned you off from other books in this genre?

    I won't get another Spy School book, and think twice before downloading Stuart Gibbs books for this age group.

    "A page turner.... if it had pages."

    Good character development, intriguing plot line, well-placed humor, and suspenseful. I thoroughly enjoyed listening to it.

    "We couldn't turn it off"

    We chose this book to listen to as we headed out Memorial Day weekend. My 4th and 2nd graders loved the book - we couldn't stop listening to the story. So much fun!

    "Warning, strong language not for little ears"
    Would you try another book from Stuart Gibbs and/or Gibson Frazier?

    I do not believe that I would get another of these books. The plot is great, the characters are awesome, but WHY, WHY the language. We are pretty careful about the words that we use in our home. This book had many uses of "damn" and "ass." It's so disappointing. I was so excited about the potential, but honestly the language ruined it for me; It was just completely out of place.


    Would you recommend Spy School to your friends? Why or why not?

    No, I would not recommend this to friend because of the strong language.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Very engaging plot and distinct characters.

    "great for kids"

    It was definitely meant for a younger audience than i thought but it was fun and action packed while still being able to relate to junior high problems such as not fitting in and insecurity.
