The mystery/spy pieces of this are excellent. Plenty of suspense. I thought this might be an older middle grade novel (10+). Some of the characters are older teens (15, 14) and there are some murders (off page) that are part of the case. I don't think any of that content will be an issue for younger middle grade readers, but it did make me wonder.
There are threads of the story left unresolved, so I hope that means there will be another book in this series. The characters are brilliant and spunky and loyal, and I would love to spend more time with them. I would hand this to middle grade mystery/spy story fans enthusiastically and without reservation.
I just purchased the book series 1-3 Trapped, Vanished & Framed. We should be getting them this Monday and can't wait!!!
Mr. Ponti is a fabulous writer. The book flows without a hitch. The kids, although in an outlandish situation, are suited for spy games much more than an ordinary life.
I'm a senior citizen who loves middle grade and YA novels. City Spies is one of the best I've ever read. Even when I was the "right" age. Way recommended!
Mostly the diversity shows up in the illustration of each kid at the back of the book and the fact that the writer tells us where they are from. They all read like middle class white American kids, in spite of the fact that most of them were recruited as street kids or foster kids in their home cities.
Still a fun read, clean, exciting, interesting mystery for middle grades.
Five kids are brought together by "Mother" who heads up a secret section of the M16. Each teen has a special skill, Sarah being the latest addition due to her computer hacking skills. The story opens with Sarah getting arrested for hacking into the New York City foster care system and Mother saving her. The next thing she knows, she is part of the group and on her way to Paris to save the world.
Strong characters, lots of action, bad guys, good guys, humor and fun.
