Accidental spy Ben Ripley is ready for summer break. He has packed his bags at spy school and is looking forward to spending some time with his parents and friends from back home. A summons from the principal results in a bit of a letdown: Ben is not headed for home, after all. All spies must attend Spy Camp over summer break. A bigger letdown awaits in his dorm room when he returns there from his visit with the principal: The evil organization known as SPYDER has left him a message. They’re after him again. It’s clear what this means. Ben won’t be relaxing on summer break (as so many kids do); he’ll be fighting crime and trying to save the world—again. This fast-paced sequel to Spy Schoolblends humor, action, and intrigue in a story sure to appeal to a broad audience. Ben is an appealing lead character with a fantastic supporting cast of likeable characters. Recommended for all youth library collections.
