|Ben gets a spot in Spy School. He is not sure why but he is in the thick of the action as someone tries to kidnap him and may be out to kill him. What can he do with his limited skills?
This is laugh out loud funny. Ben is a riot. His asides are a scream as is his droll thoughts of what is happening to him. As he tries to figure out what is happening with Erica, the tops in her class--maybe even the whole school--things do not look good for Ben to have a long career (or life) as a spy. But Ben turns out to be better than the powers that be gave him credit for. He follows the clues and thwarts one part but did he get them all?
I had a blast with this book and look forward to Spy Camp next.
