Spy School Secret Service by Stuart Gibbs (from a Two Thumbs Up reviewer)

by McNally Robinson - Friday, Sep 29, 2017 at 8:30pm

Spy School Secret Service is about Ben Ripley, a thirteen year old spy. Yes, you read that right. He is a spy. For the past twenty years, The Central Intelligence Agency, also known as the CIA, has been recruiting kids from ages 12-18 who have special skills that will help them as a spy. Ben Ripley is one of these kids. Ben has been on four different missions during the past year almost all of them involving the same evil organization - SPYDER. SPYDER has done everything from stealing missiles to placing dozens of moles inside some spy school's. However, this time they are doing something way out of their league. They are trying to assassinate the president of the United States. Ben gets sent undercover to the Whitehouse to try to figure out if there are any moles there. While he is there, someone tries to assassinate the president and Ben gets framed for it. Now he must stop another assassination before it's too late, but this time with the entire CIA on his tail. Can he pull it off? Or will he end up in prison while the president is killed.

Ben goes undercover in the White House to take on a SPYDER operative determined to assassinate the president in this latest addition to the New York Times bestselling Spy School series.Thirteen-year-old Ben Ripley has had a lot of field success despite only just beginning his second year at Spy School, something graduates rarely experience. But he'd never have survived without the help from experienced agents and his friends. Now he's been called in on a solo mission--and the fate of the United States of America is on his shoulders alone. The Mission: Prevent a presidential assassination by infiltrating the White House, and locating the enemy operative. But when the president's son is as helpful as a hamster, and a trained SPYDER agent would never appear to be up to something (they're far too clever for that), Ben may be in over his head this time. And when everything goes wrong, Ben must rely on his Spy School friends to save his reputation...but even friends can double-cross or be swayed to the enemy's side.
