Author: Stuart Gibbs
Reviewed by: Janiah T., Grade V
The book is about Benjamin Ripley who is a 12 year old boy about to go to Spy School in Washington D.C.He has been watched for his whole life by Alexander Hale, an agent at the spy school. He is extremely smart and is new at the school. There are very big surprises in this book that you'll love if you like action filled books. He also works with a girl named Erica. Erica is kind of Ben's dream girl at the school. There also is a big surprise about Erica that will shock you because it definitely shocked me! This book is not only about action it's about suspense and mystery and lots of problem solving. The main message is that you are never too old to do anything. Ben knows because he is a spy in training and he only 12 years old.
The setting is on the Spy School campus. Most of the scenes in the book take place is the mess hall and where all the student rooms are. It is important to the story that you know were everything takes place because it has lots of mystery and you need to remember where everything is. You can start trying to figure the mystery on your own through out the book.
The main character of the book is Benjamin Ripley. He is 12 years old and has a very uninteresting and mundane life, but it all changes in the spy school. He is usually not enthusiastic about life at school.
I would definitely recommend this book for all those readers who love action suspense and mystery. I love this book and will definitely read it again and tell other people about too.
