Spy School Secret Service (B&N Exclusive Edition) (Spy School Series #5) by Stuart Gibbs

Limited collector's edition of Spy School Secret Service, the fifth book in Stuart Gibbs's New York Times bestselling Spy School series, featuring an exclusive jacket with shiny silver and red foil, and a map of the Washington D.C. on the reverse side—plus 16 pages of bonus content, including super-secret internal memos and a post-operational interview.

Thirteen-year-old Ben Ripley has had a lot of field success despite only just beginning his second year at Spy School, something graduates rarely experience. But he’d never have survived without the help from experienced agents and his friends.

Now he’s been called in on a solo mission—and the fate of the United States of America is on his shoulders alone.

The Mission: Prevent a presidential assassination by infiltrating the White House, and locating the enemy operative. But when the president’s son is as helpful as a hamster, and a trained SPYDER agent would never appear to be up to something (they’re far too clever for that), Ben may be in over his head this time.

And when everything goes wrong, Ben must rely on his Spy School friends to save his reputation…but even friends can double-cross or be swayed to the enemy’s side.

Ben is unofficially activated to help save the President's life. Unfortunately it looks like the opposite may happen with Ben on the job. Fortunately Erica unofficially steps in to help. It takes Ben a while to figure out what SPYDER is up to but when he does only his friends believe him (and that included Erica.) It is up to the school-aged spies to save the day. I love this series. Cyrus is a jerk. Ben finally gets the truth from Erica. It is a fun romp through the nation's capital and the White House. Lots of secrets abound

Homework Assignment: Save the President One of my favorite authors is Stuart Gibbs. Yes, he writes for middle graders. But he writes such delightful books for middle graders that everyone should read them. Spy School Secret Service is his latest, and it’s filled with his usual adventure and laughs. This series features Ben Riley. Just over a year ago, he was recruited to the CIA’s spy training school. Since then, he’s found himself on some pretty serious missions fighting SPYDER, a top secret evil organization. How top secret is it? Not everyone at the CIA knows they even exist. Unfortunately, SPYDER just keeps coming back, and the latest chatter is that they are plotting to kill the President of the United States. Cyrus Hale decides that Ben is the perfect person to go undercover and figure out who SPYDER has on the inside of the White House. His cover is that he is the new friend of the President’s son. However, to say the two don’t hit it off is an understatement. And the number of people in the White House is overwhelming. Will Ben be able to narrow the suspects down in time? This is just the set up for this book. Trust me, from here it shoots off and becomes another wild ride. There are some pretty spectacular action scenes that had me turning pages quickly. All the twists and turns lead us to a completely believable climax. Okay, a believable climax for a world where a twelve-year-old regularly saves the world, but that’s exactly what we are expecting when we pick up this book. Peppered into this world of action and intrigue are quite a few laughs. I was lucky no one caught me laughing at this book in the break room at work, in fact. There are so many moments that just caught me off guard, and I loved it. The characters are good. Oh, they could be a little stronger, especially the supporting characters, but they are strong enough to make us care about the outcome of the story. We do get to learn a bit more about Erica Hale, Cyrus’s granddaughter who is a couple years older than Ben. With the emphasis on action, kids will get caught up in the story and travel along with Ben. Heck, as an adult, I do, too, so really, this is worth noting only in passing. I’m always disappointed when I reach the final page of a Stuart Gibbs novel because I’m not ready to leave the story behind yet. Fans of the Spy School series will feel the same way when they reach the end of Spy School Secret Service. If you haven’t started the series yet, I highly recommend you do. You’ll find yourself waiting anxiously for the next in the series before you know it.
