Editor reviews

Teen spies may not be ready as a team or individuals to confront a megalomaniac transforming everyday people into mutant soldiers for his private army, but if they don’t stop him as a part of their school assignment they will (literally) lose their minds.
Richard Aspel brings vibrancy to the distinct characters, quick-witted dialogue, and fast-pace of the first Spy High tale of adventure and espionage. Six underperforming students at a secret school dedicated to training top spies are assigned to the (James) Bond team. What begins as a morale-building expedition turns much more serious when the skills they collectively possess - computer-hacking, bad-guy neutralizing, stealth, etc. - may be overwhelmed, ironically enough, by their inability to "bond".

Summary

The first book in the popular Spy High series. Follow the fast-paced action adventure of six kids as they are thrown into Deveraux Academy, an underground training ground for young secret agents. They can hack any computer, break any code, take out bad guys with SleepShot from two hundred metres, and vanish utterly without trace. The one thing Bond Team haven't got their heads around is, er, bonding. Jake and Ben want to kill each other, Jen thinks Lori is an airhead bimbo, and the only thing Eddie respects about Cally is her butt. All this is very bad news. Because if they don't get it together for their first term exams, if they can't defeat the infamous Stromfeld Programme, then they can forget about ever graduating Spy High. And with a mind-wipe greeting all those who flunk out, we mean that quite literally. Let the lessons begin.

Critic reviews

"Exciting and well-plotted... will definitely appeal to teens who enjoy fast-paced action adventures." (Education Oasis)
"Will keep young adults well entertained, especially reluctant readers weaned on the fast pace and rampant one-liners of movies like Austin Powers and Charlie's Angels."(Booklist)
