When Ben gets kicked out of the CIA's spy school, he enrolls with the enemy. This companion to Spy School and Spy Camp is rife with action, adventure, and espionage.
During a spy school game of Capture the Flag, 12-year-old Ben Ripley somehow accidentally shoots a live mortar into the principal's office - and immediately gets himself expelled. Not long after going back to the boring old real world, Ben gets recruited by evil crime organization SPYDER.
And he accepts.
As a new student in SPYDER's evil spy school, which trains kids to become bad guys with classes like Counter-counterespionage and Laying Low 101, Ben does some secret spying of his own. He's acting as unofficial undercover agent, and it becomes quickly apparent that SPYDER is planning something very big - and very evil.
Ben can tell he's a key part of the plan, but he's not quite sure what the plan is. Can Ben figure out what SPYDER is up to - and get word to the good guys without getting caught - before it's too late?

However, he won a raffle from his teacher who had this book and he started reading it at school, and he sat in his room and had it finished by bedtime. Now, my son isn't a slow reader by any account, but like stated above, he's also a normal 10 year old boy, he sees a squirrel out his window and it's all over for him. This book is 352 pages long. We immediately bought the rest of series. He inhaled them just as quickly and then went on a campaign to force the rest of the house to read them all as well!
The reason? These books are just so much fun!
I mean who wouldn't want to be a spy at the age of 13? Then to go undercover and work for the bad guys? Beat up bullies at middle school with martial arts training? So much wish-fulfilment, you can't not have fun with it.
And that's where this book does right where the last book misfired a little for me. This book is all about Ben Ripley. He's the main character from start to finish, and he's awesome. Spy Camp, in my opinion, placed him strangely as the first-person narrator of another person's story (Erika Hale). But this one is near perfect.
With a new location at "Evil Spy School" we get to meet some new characters. Ashley and Nefarious were great additions and I loved them both. They had good backstories, although one of them felt a little flat.
The book had great suspense, which was easy given that most of it is a giant undercover plot with the fear of always getting caught.
And that's actually where things went a little south for me. This is the reason for 4 instead of 5 starts...
The part where Ben gets uncovered as a double-agent doesn't feel right. There is no way he should have been able to escape that situation. If the bad guys rigged the elaborate trap just for him, you'd have expected they would've also rigged a more idiot-proof way of catching him. It took me out of the story a bit.
That nit-pic aside, I loved all the extras added to the end. It was a great way to round out the book.
I'm already eagerly awaiting the next in the series.
