Spy Camp

Spy Camp
by Stuart Gibbs
Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers (April 2, 2013)

Well, to understand most of this, it’s best if you read Spy School before you read Spy Camp. Anyways, Spy Camp is about a 13 year old boy named Ben Ripley. He was accepted to Spy School as a first year in the first book and goes to a Spy Camp in the summer. He and his friends discovered there was a mole in the CIA Academy of Espionage the year before and that the mole was their “friend.” His name was Murray Hill and he worked for a secret agency called SPYDER and their plans were to overthrow the CIA. In Spy Camp, Ben gets classified mail from SPYDER, who asks Ben to double-agent for them. Ben gets taken out of Camp and gets ambushed by SPYDER. The remaining of the book is Ben living in the wilderness with Alexander Hale and his daughter, Erica Hale. They thwart SPYDER’s plans and that’s the end of the book.

I liked that this book was unpredictable and that it was so suspenseful, especially in the end when Ben stops a missile from attacking leaders of the World, such as the President of the United States of America (representing the CIA), the Prime Minister of England (representing MI-6), and more. I disliked that it ended so quickly! I wanted to read more but the author stopped so suddenly, it seemed like a cliffhanger (it isn’t one.) Overall, I loved this book. 5 out of 5 for this! --YJ
