Evil Spy School Kindle Edition
During a spy school game of Capture the Flag, twelve-year-old Ben Ripley accidentally shoots a live mortar into the principal’s office—and immediately gets himself expelled. Not long after going back to the boring real world, Ben gets an offer to join evil crime organization SPYDER. And he accepts.
Ben can tell he’s a key part of their sinister 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?
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)

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.
I really love this book as a thrilling sequel of Spy Camp.Really what I like is the thrilling suspense and I truly admire this book as well as the previous books of this great series.As you know from the cover, Benjamin Ripley is sent to Evil spy school.I can easily picture in my mind what is happening and it was nice to finally see some action!This book is full of amazing adventures and I liked reading about Benjamin Ripley from the first book!I hope you really like this book.
