Teen spies may not be ready as a team or individuals to confront a megalomaniac transforming everyday people into mutant soldiers for his private army, but if they don’t stop him as a part of their school assignment they will (literally) lose their minds.
Richard Aspel brings vibrancy to the distinct characters, quick-witted dialogue, and fast-pace of the first Spy High tale of adventure and espionage. Six underperforming students at a secret school dedicated to training top spies are assigned to the (James) Bond team. What begins as a morale-building expedition turns much more serious when the skills they collectively possess - computer-hacking, bad-guy neutralizing, stealth, etc. - may be overwhelmed, ironically enough, by their inability to "bond".
"Exciting and well-plotted... will definitely appeal to teens who enjoy fast-paced action adventures." (Education Oasis)
"Will keep young adults well entertained, especially reluctant readers weaned on the fast pace and rampant one-liners of movies like Austin Powers and Charlie's Angels."(Booklist)
