A sinister organization is trying to destroy his school and take over the world, and Nate has only a few hours to stop the evil plot.
With just a backpack full of spy gadgets, a bit of spy training, and their own cunning to guide them, Nate and his partner Lucy follow a trail of secret messages in pursuit of the one thing that can save their school from destruction. As they are chased through subway tunnels and across rooftops, Nate and Lucy must race to complete their mission before it is too late. Cracking secret codes, evading capture, and battling enemy agents-sixth grade wasn't supposed to be like this!

Sixth-grader Nate Fischer never thought about being a spy. After an unexpected phone call came the night before school started, Nate found himself at the Benjamin Tallmadge Institute – a school for SPIES! Nate begins his training and is a good spy (not great – but good). Nate soon finds himself and his partner, Lucy, on a mission to save their school (and possible the whole world) from total destruction! I read and reviewed another one of Mr. Stickler’s book (The Absolutely Amazing Adventures of Agent Auggie Spinoza) and I really enjoyed that one. Mr. Stickler’s new book is even better. I love all the spy gadgets and techniques they use in the book. I have to say that having kids as spies or secret agents is a favorite story plot for me. Mr. Stickler made his book stand out from other’s I have read by packing it full of cool spy gear and action. The plot kept me interested in reading the book and Mr. Stickler’s writing style is good for any age. The story has humor mixed in to make reading it more fun. Nate is a great character and I enjoyed reading about him. I am looking forward to the next book in the series. *NOTE* I got a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review
