Spy Ski School {Wunderkind Reads}

Book provided for review/feature consideration

Last month, I shared that Little Miss Lo had been swept up in my Sherlock obsession {that started when I read A Study In Charlotte early this summer}, and now we have another series from Simon & Schuster Kids to add to her must read list! I'll share a synopsis for Spy Ski School, the latest in Stuart Gibbs' Spy School series,  below...

Ben Ripley enrolls in ski school, where the slopes, and the stakes, get really steep in this follow-up to the Edgar Award-nominated Spy School, Spy Camp, and Evil Spy School.

Thirteen-year-old Ben Ripley is not exactly the best student spy school has ever seen--he keeps flunking Advanced Self Preservation. But outside of class, Ben is pretty great at staying alive. His enemies have kidnapped him, shot at him, locked him in a room with a ticking time bomb, and even tried to blow him up with missiles. And he's survived every time.

After all that unexpected success, the CIA has decided to activate Ben for real.

The Mission: Become friends with Jessica Shang, the daughter of a suspected Chinese crime boss, and find out all of her father's secrets. Jessica wants to go to ski school in the Rocky Mountains, so a select few spy school students are going skiing too--under cover, of course.

Ben might not be able to handle a weapon (or a pair of skis), but he can make friends easy peasy. That is, until his best friend from home drops in on the trip and jeopardizes the entire mission...

Spy Ski School is the fourth book in the Spy School Series - I've got the box set of the first three in my Amazon cart so that London can start from the beginning. I'm toying with the idea of having her do mini video reviews on my bookish Instagram account - so stay tuned for that as we start this, and other series! Until next time...
