Review

Super-spy-in-training Ben Ripley is headed for enemy territory. When a training exercise at the CIA's Academy of Espionage takes a wrong turn and 13-year-old Ben accidentally blows up the principal's office, he's thrown out of school faster than readers can say, "undercover." But before Ben even has the chance to settle back into civilian life, his nemesis at SPYDER, a top-secret organization of evildoers, offers him a chance to get back in the game—but this time, he'll be playing for the bad guys. Is this all part of a secret CIA plan to infiltrate SPYDER? Or is Ben running a one-man undercover operation? Gibbs (Spy Camp, 2013, etc.) leaves readers (and Ben!) wondering a bit too long, but fans of the series will still enjoy the ride. Ben is as witty and entertaining a protagonist as ever, and readers will get a kick out of his new "friends" at evil-spy school. Ashley Sparks, a bitter ex-gymnast robbed of her chance for Olympic gold but carrying a torch for Ben, is a particularly welcome addition. Ashley provides a nice foil to Erica Hale, Ben's secret CIA crush, though Gibbs passes up the opportunity to really capitalize on the potential for a full-fledged, superspy love triangle. It's not a nail-biter, but it certainly is an entertaining battle between good and evil. (Kirkus Reviews February 1, 2015)

When spy-in-training Ben Ripley accidentally blows up the principal’s office, the 13-year-old finds himself summarily expelled from the CIA Academy of Espionage and then, in short order, tricked into infiltrating rival agency SPYDER’s evil spy school. When his cover is blown, things get, well, complicated, as Ben is reunited with his CIA cohorts in a rogue mission designed to thwart SPYDER’s latest evil plot. While a bit plodding at times, Gibbs’ third Spy School novel nevertheless has its diverting moments and a full complement of chortles—enough to ensure that fans will eagerly await the inevitable sequel. (Booklist Online January 26, 2015)

With tongue-in-cheek humor and a gripping pace, readers who’ve enjoyed Gibbs’s previous novels will not be disappointed. (School Library Journal)

After getting expelled from spy school (for accidentally shooting a live mortar into his principal’s office), 13-year-old Ben Ripley is recruited by SPYDER, an organization dedicated to educating the next generation of bad guys. Acting as a double agent under deep cover, Ben tries to infiltrate the evil school and uncover their nefarious plans. With tongue-in-cheek humor and a gripping pace, readers who’ve enjoyed Gibbs’s previous novels will not be disappointed. Though this works as a stand-alone, familiarity with the other books in the “Spy School” series will make for a more satisfying read. (School Library Journal March 2015)
