The Doublecross: (And Other Skills I Learned as a Superspy)
With a hilarious and charismatic cast of characters, this start to a fresh middle grade action-adventure series is part Spy Kids and all fun!
Everyone in twelve-year-old Hale's family is a spy, going way back. They've all worked for the Sub Rosa Society, an elite organization that's so top secret that new agents aren't recruited; they're born. His parents may be the ultimate spy team at SRS, but Hale isn't your typical stealthy spy--he is, as his mother puts it, "big-boned," and as some of his classmates put it, "fat." Still, he's convinced he will someday be a great field agent. After all, it's his legacy.
But when both his mother and father go missing on a secret mission--likely captured by the SRS's number one enemy--it's Hale's time to step up and (with a little help from his acrobat-cheerleader little sister) save the day.
