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!

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!

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.
