Spy School, Volume 1

Front Cover
Hodder Children's, 2013 - Boys - 321 pages
Like many kids, Ben Ripley imagines life as a secret agent would be pretty amazing - so when he learns he's been recruited to the CIA's top secret Academy of Espionage, it sounds too good to be true. And it is. From the moment he arrives - and ends up in the middle of an enemy attack - Ben finds Spy School is going to be far more difficult, dastardly and dangerous than he expected. Even worse, he soon discovers that he hasn't been recruited to become a top agent; instead, he's been brought in as bait to catch a devious double agent. Now Ben needs a crash course in espionage so that he can catch the mole, prove his worth - and get the girl. It won't be easy, but it'll be a very fun - and very funny - ride.
