    The evil organization SPYDER is back, and they are planning to assassinate the President. Because of Ben Ripley’s success fighting them in the past, he is sent under cover into the White House to try to find the sleeper agent. However, with the large number of people in the White House each day, Ben soon realizes just how mammoth the task is. Can he figure out what is going on in time to save the President? This premise sets us off on another wonderful wild ride into the world of espionage. Oh, t The evil organization SPYDER is back, and they are planning to assassinate the President.

This premise sets us off on another wonderful wild ride into the world of espionage. Oh, the fact that Ben is only twelve-years-old might be unrealistic, but it is so much fun and author Stuart Gibbs makes it work here. There are lots of twists leading up to the wonderful climax. The characters are good, although they could be a little stronger. That’s probably just the adult in me talking, however because it certainly wasn’t on my mind when I was busy turning pages. The book also packs a fair number of laughs that caught me off guard and truly made me laugh out loud. Kids of all ages will love this book. Read my full review at Carstairs Considers.

Eventually, B E ARC from Edelweiss Above the Treeline Ben is activated for a mission-- Cyrus Hale feels that the president of the US is the target of an assassination attempt, and Ben is taken to the White House under the guise of being friends with the president's son, Jason Stern, with the assignment of locating the source. Things never go smoothly for Ben, and the Secret Service dogs go crazy over his coat, Jason is a jerk, and everyone in the entire complex looks like a possible SPYDER agent. Eventually, Ben manages to thwart an attempt on the president's life, but makes himself Public Enemy #1 in the process. He manages to escape, and gets help from none other than Erica Hale as well as a surprise relation of hers, who is instrumental in helping Ben lay low while trying to figure things out. In order to uncover some of SPYDER's motivation and to clear himself, Ben must talk to Ashley Sparks, with whom he trained when undercover at the evil spy school. Ashley is being held in a secure government facility, and when Ben and Erica show up to talk to her, they find Zoe, Mike and Ben's other fellow students who have the same idea. When everyone is caught, how will Ben manage to convince Cyrus Hale that he is not aligned with SPYDER, and that the evil organization's plan was not to assassinate the president, but something more nefarious... and still a threat? This series distinguishes itself from other spy stories by having a lot more humor. At first, this came across as a bit goofy, but as Ben's skills at deducing evil plots develop, the plots have become more serious. The double crossing and deviousness of operatives switching sides is wonderfully convoluted in ways that even Alex Rider would have trouble untangling. SPYDER emerges as a complex and difficult threat even when we only see a few of their agents, and even when those agents, like Murray Hill, seem mainly goofily incompetent. This is a clever and thought provoking way to portray the enemy. The middle grade voice in this is excellent, and the characters engaging and fun. Ben knows that his own forte is deducing things: I adored the scene where he remains on the floor while Erica and Ashley take down other operatives because he is "pathetic at fighting" and they are definitely not. Even better is Mike's comment afterward that the girls are much cooler than the girls in regular middle school! The romantic triangle is amusing as well-- I love the idea that a teen boy thwarted in his affections would join an evil organization in order to get back at his rival! Erica and Ben have a decided connection, but since she's two years older, this is a huge complication which is realistically addressed. Gibbs is brilliant at inserting necessary exposition of plot into chase scenes. Whether Ben is unraveling SPYDER's plans during a muddy obstacle course or while he is eluding bad guys crammed in a spare tire compartment in a mini van, this device works extremely well at allowing the reader to understand the plot while the story keeps moving briskly along. While there is so much to love about Ben's adventures, my favorite part is the plethora of laugh-out-loud phrases and situations that jump out randomly at the reader like camouflaged operatives. When the words"pungent muskrat" or "zesty walrus" are thrown into a serious conversation, or we read about an operative using wood stain to blend in with paneling, it's an unexpected delight that encourages readers to keep devouring the pages in order to get to the next hidden bonbon of delectable humorous prose.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. I loved this book so much! It was such a good book! I loved how annoyed Murray was when Ben thwarted SPYDER's plans AGAIN! Honestly I'm really surprised that Ben didn't know that Zoe had a crush on him. I mean it's obvious! And... the fact that Cyrus was more interested in the food at the end was so relate-able, and when Erica made the president's son look like he wet his pants, and then he ran into the cake, let's just say I think I might have died of laughter!

    I absolutely love these books. And they referenced Guys and Dolls, my all time favorite musical. Was refreshing and unexpected. These books are always funny and full of action. Definitely five stars!

    I really enjoyed the story Ben has to find the mole in the white house but everyone believes it is him after the mole slips a bomb on him. He has to have Erica help him to evade the FBI and the CIA.

    Stuart Gibbs brings us another installment in the action-filled Spy School series for the 4th-8th grade audience. As with earlier books in this series, the characters of Erica and Ben are intelligent spies in training who manage to save the free world while also navigating the more mundane things like school, friendship and little bits of "more than friendship." And while it is absolutely impossible that junior high children could possibly thwart such nefarious plans as those of SPYDER, Gibbs wr Stuart Gibbs brings us another installment in the action-filled Spy School series for the 4th-8th grade audience.

And while it is absolutely impossible that junior high children could possibly thwart such nefarious plans as those of SPYDER, Gibbs writes this series with such finesse that readers are completely sucked in and reality is suspended for a time. While the length of books in the Spy School series might be daunting for some, this one, along with all the others, moves at such a fast pace that even the most reluctant reader is likely to be swept up into the action and never realize how many pages were read until the final one is turned. Teachers can feel good about recommending this book with its lack of profanity or innuendo and its great vocabulary, character development, and clear plot. Spy School Secret Service is already on a Fall book order for both my libraries. (Review of digital ARC from Edelweiss Above the Treeline)

    The Spy School Secret Service is a well written, intriguing book about kid spies who have to stop a plot to mess with the U.S Government. This book introduces the characters and the setting very well, because I figured out that I was reading the 5th book in the series AFTER I read the book, so if you didn't read the 4 books before, you would still have a good idea on what was going on. My favorite part was at the end, and that part also had the most action.

    I still liked this book, but as said in my Spy Camp review, I want to vary my ratings. This book was good, I read it way to fast, I know I say that a lot but I actually barely even read it. So sorry if I'm offending anyone for putting 3 stars. I didn't really get the story line, but that was my fault. Anyway, I'm sure that if I actually read it, I would change my rating to 4 stars. I still caught some funny parts, and all in all, I am totally looking forward to a possible sixth book!

    Ben is back and better than ever in this new Spy School book. The involvement of the President and the Secret Service adds an extra dimension to this fabulous middle grade series! I really enjoyed getting to meet Erica's mother, her character was delightful. Book 5 in the Spy School series brings back many of the characters featured previously and will be a sure hit with middle grade readers. Highly recommend !

    Tween likes the tone of the book and can easily get lost in it. Ranks this 3rd of the 5 so far. While this reminds her of Story Thieves, she considers this the better series. Looking forward to more from this series. 4.5 of 5 stars.

Benjamin Ripley, along with a lot of other young adults, attend a secret spy school not located on a map. Benjamin coming from his last mission, was very tired and ready to take a break from the field to relax for a little bit, after destroying most of a secret organization with the name of SPYDER. Benjamin is pulled to the side and told that he needs to go on a mission in the white house to stop this organization from assassinating the President of the United States. Benjamin goes on a really tough, confusing job to stop this madness involving a lot of situations where SPYDER leads him into exactly what they want him to do with Ripley having no idea. Benjamin has to go on the run from being accused of the President’s assassination, a very hard journey with secret messages from friends that are hard to decode. The author keeps me engaged in this book because he is always putting in mysteries throughout the book that are huge surprises to the character, and me as a reader. One of these mysteries is, through one phone call when Benjamin was on the run, his friend Erica yells at Ben for assassinating the president. What Ben does not realize until later is that it was a secret code through words because all of the phones were being monitored by the CIA. This caught me by surprise and Ben, because he did not figure this out until a lot later. I think that the theme of this book is to always look for the obvious because most of your life problems answers are right in front of you. Such as when Ben was trying to find answers to most of his problems in escaping, when the answer was to do something so simple as doing the opposite of what the CIA would think you would do. This was a very important decision by Ben later on in the book. Another example of answers being right in front of you is when Ben’s Friend Mike, explains simple logic that is so obvious that no one else would ever think of giving Ben and his friends a lead to escaping the CIA. I think the strengths of this book are when the book really brings out its meaning of a mystery book, by solving codes, trying to solve cases, and investigating to try a figure out how exactly how the situation went down, which was very interesting at the end of the book. I think one weakness in the book for me personally, is when they brought back a criminal for SPYDER that was long gone from the previous books and should have never still been in the story. This was a little confusing for me, but made me concentrate a little more to try and find the clues that caused him to be back in the story. I would recommend this book to anyone that likes solving mysteries and solving fun codes. Read this book because i’m telling you, things that happen in this book, are things that you would never expect.

    Spy School Secret Service is about a boy named, Ben who has a photographic memory which helps him memorize things and is also the reason why he’s so good with numbers. Ben attends St. Smithen’s Science Academy for Boys and Girls, which is a cover name for what the academy is really for. The academy is where people are recruited and trained to become spies. Ben is with many spies who are also in training, but he is usually with his friends Jawa, Chip, Zoe, Warren, and Erica, Erica is the best spy Spy School Secret Service is about a boy named, Ben who has a photographic memory which helps him memorize things and is also the reason why he’s so good with numbers. Ben attends St. Smithen’s Science Academy for Boys and Girls, which is a cover name for what the academy is really for. The academy is where people are recruited and trained to become spies. Ben is with many spies who are also in training, but he is usually with his friends Jawa, Chip, Zoe, Warren, and Erica, Erica is the best spy in the whole school. Ben is on his second year, yet has thwarted the most evil organization there is, that goes by the name SPYDER. Cyrus Hale ,Erica’s grandfather, picked up chatter on various channels used by SPYDER and figured out that they're planning to assassinate the president. He sends in Ben in hopes of stopping this from happening. Cyrus believes that there could be a mole at the White House and when Ben goes to the White House to find possible suspects he realizes that there are hundreds of people there and any of them could be the mole. Since SPYDER is a sly organization they probably sent a mole that is cool, calm, and collective. If this is a mole from SPYDER the mole is going to blend in well and will seem as normal as anyone could be. Usually if you're looking for suspects you look for the jittery people, but since we're talking about SPYDER the mole is probably someone who acts like a normal civilian and since there are hundreds of people in the White House it could be anyone of those people who come for a job or are just visiting. Now, Ben has to find this mole that could be any of hundreds people there and if he fails the president's death will be on his hands. I would recommend this book to a person who loves action books with suspense. There are many parts with action and non-stop adventure. There so much suspense when you start wondering who the mole is? Will the president live or be assassinated by SPYDER? When Ben comes to a realization you just can’t put down the book because he realizes something so extraordinary and out of the box that you hardly believe that he thought of it. The next question to pop up in your head is usually how on earth could anybody figure that out? This is why I would recommend the suspensive, action filled and adventurous book Spy School Secret Service by Stuart Gibbs.

This is a mystery book because Ben Ripley is trying to find out why SPYDER is trying to assassinate the president and many other people. At the end he finally figures out who they are really going after and it could risk his life and everybody else. You should read this book and all the other books leading up to this book. It won't make sense because you wouldn't know who the characters are and what happened to leading up to the mission. This book was a page turner because I couldn't stop reading it. After every page and every chapter, something happens that is very interesting and keeps you hanging. It was a really great book and was the best book that I have read so far and the other books in the series. You should read the book and then write a review of how much you liked it and share it with your friends, family, and neighbors.

    Spy School Secret Service is the fifth installment in the Spy School Series. The audience follows Ben, a second year spy student as he goes undercover in the White House to take on a SPYDER operative determined to assassinate the president. The author uses the perfect middle school voice to describe Ben's mission and his struggle as Public Enemy #1 after he completes his mission.

Spy School Secret Service is a mystery novel that would be best be suited for upper elementary and middle school age students. This is another great book to ignite a passion for reading in students through a read aloud or a book club. Students will love to follow Ben on his action packed case. This book could be used to discuss vocabulary, character development, and make predictions as students try to figure out the mystery along with the main character Ben. This is a WOW book for me because I was engrossed in the novel as the main character Ben was attempting to discover who was trying to assassinate the president. The book is also pretty entertaining as Ben has to balance typical middle school age issues with being a spy.

    Cyrus Hale has picked up on chatter indicating that SPYDER has someone inside the White House who will be attempting to assassinate the President in the near future. Because Cyrus is afraid that SPYDER has moles in several agencies, he sends Ben in undercover unofficially. Only the President really knows why Ben is there. Ben is finding the mission a bit overwhelming. Does Cyrus realize just how many people are inside the White House? How is he supposed to narrow down the suspect list when there Cyrus Hale has picked up on chatter indicating that SPYDER has someone inside the White House who will be attempting to assassinate the President in the near future.

How is he supposed to narrow down the suspect list when there are hundreds of suspects? And once Ben finally does figure out SPYDER's plot, he'll find himself in the toughest situation he's ever faced yet. This was fantastic, as I've come to expect from Mr. Gibbs. He manages to keep you guessing, make things exciting, keep the action coming, and have Ben provide comic commentary along the way. I'm so sad it took the book six months to get over here to our school, but so glad it is finally here. I've had several students asking me every single week of those six months if this book was here yet. There will be some very happy students tomorrow.

    Ben has faced the deadly organization known as SPYDER on several occasions and always bested them. However, each of those times he had back up from his close knit group of friends. This time he is called to do a solo mission against SPYDER...prevent a presidential assassination! Without his trusty friends he feels like he might not be up to the job, but when the time is right, he reacts well and saves the life of the president. Unfortunately, the observers see it differently. They think he made Ben has faced the deadly organization known as SPYDER on several occasions and always bested them.

Unfortunately, the observers see it differently. They think he made an attempt on the president's life. Thus begins Ben's complete severance from all support, and his fight for survival against every law enforcement agency in Washington DC. He proved to me his exceptional intelligence, skills, and good judgement throughout this ordeal. Each book in this series gets better as they become more complex, and more sophisticated. I like the concept of the spy school and the fact that the successful students such as Erica, Ben, Zoe, and Mike rely on their brains and fast thinking more than weapons. This is a great series and this book in particular is excellent.

    I really liked this book because it had a suspense to it that made you want to keep turning the page. I would recommend this book to anybody who likes mystery books and books involving spies/law enforcement. This series is about a secret CIA spy school for kids. Ben Ripley's main enemy is SPYDER. In this book they framed Ben for attempting to assassinate the president by putting a bomb in his jacket.

Later, they discovered that the attack was actually meant to assassinate the joint chief of staff so that the vice joint chief of staff could take his place, the vice joint chief was a SPYDER agent that wanted to blackmail other countries for money with his nuclear detonator. The junior CIA agents were transported into the pentagon for "information acquisition" and caught him just in the nick of time and then gathered enough evidence to be freed.

    I know. It's weird. A grown adult loving a series about a 13-year-old secret spy. However, in my defense, Stuart Gibbs is one of the absolute best young adult/ middle-grade writers. He has a wonderful way of writing and a great way of drawing the reader in with action and character development. I love all of his series. Gibbs is a talented, and his stories are easy, enjoyable reads that make me smile. They make me giggle and wish I were a secret, undercover agent or young detective. It brings ba I know. It's weird.

They take me back to my childhood, and the love of reading is delighted all over again.

    The intensity in the plot hits early in this book, and it doesn't let up until the end. Once again, Ben has to figure out and thwart a plot by SPYDER, and this time it involves the President of the United States.

Ben almost doesn't foil the plan, and this time, it's him that has to go on the run.
