This holiday, give the gift of Gibbs.
Ben Ripley is a middle-schooler at a very unusual middle school: he’s spent the last year training to be a top-level spy and dodging all sorts of danger. So now that summer’s finally here, Ben’s ready to have some fun and relax. Except that’s not going to happen, because a spy-in-training’s work is never done. Ben and his fellow students are shipped off to Spy Camp, a top secret wilderness survival training facility — and when SPYDER, an enemy spy organization resurfaces, Ben will have to put all those newfound survival skills to the test. Luckily, Ben has Erica Hale — his beautiful and talented fellow student — along for the adventure. Not so luckily, he has her father — who isn’t so talented — along as well. Can Ben stay alive, impress the girl and once again thwart SPYDER’s nefarious plans?

“Spies, counterspies and moles speed the brisk action… The characters are both comic and convincing (no mean feat), and the story boasts some nifty surprises. Fans of the genre will be pleased and will look forward to the next volume in this series.” - Booklist
