Well, this has been quite a week for exciting news. First the movie deal for Spy School. Then the release of the Top Secret Spy School box set. And today Spy School hit the New York Times bestseller list again.
Plus, I still have that series info to divulge. Sorry I haven’t done that yet. My publisher told me I would be able to do it soon — and yet they still haven’t made their big announcement yet. Which is as frustrating to me as it probably is to you.
But maybe this will tide you over. I just found out from a post on my own website that my publisher has released the new cover on Amazon and Goodreads. Which means that it’s not a secret any more and I can share it.
So, here’s the cover:
Amazing, isn’t it? Yet another masterpiece by Lucy Cummins.
(I know a lot of you figured out this was the title a few days ago because it was leaked on Google somehow. But I couldn’t confirm it because I still wasn’t sure that the tile and cover would work. Now, it’s obvious that they do.)
Here’s a synopsis:
Superspy middle schooler Ben Ripley is finally going to take SPYDER down, once and for all in this latest addition to the New York Times bestselling Spy School series.
Stranded in Mexico after nearly capturing the leaders of SPYDER, thirteen-year-old Ben Ripley desperately needs to take a shower. But even more so, he and his spy school friends need to come up with a new plan to defeat their enemies, their only clue a key that opens…something.
The Mission: Go rogue from the CIA, join up with the British MI6 to locate the leader of SPYDER, the enigmatic Mr. E, and bring down the evil organization once and for all.
Only it won’t be easy. They’ll have to deal with rival evil splinter factions, devious double-crosses and learning to drive on the opposite side of the road. But they have no other choice: this is their last and final chance to crack the code on SPYDER.
As usual, this is all I’m going to share about the book. Because answering any more questions about it will ruin the fun of reading it. So please don’t ask me any questions about SS7. If you do, I will simply refer you right back to this page and ask you to read the whole thing again.
It comes out May 7, 2019. That’s less than a year away. less time than you normally have to wait for a Spy School book.
UPDATE: Even though I said no questions, at least a dozen people have written to me with the exact same question, so I’m going to answer it to make this clear: THIS IS NOT THE LAST BOOK IN THE SERIES.
If Ben and his friends defeat SPYDER (and I’m not saying they will) why would that end the series? There are lots of other potential bad guys out there.
