Spy Ski School


The coolest Spy School adventure yet.

The CIA has finally decided to activate Ben Ripley 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’s poised for success on this one. That is, until his best friend from home drops in on the trip and jeopardizes the entire mission…

  1. Stu why didn’t you put a preview of ss5 in ss4 because you said you already have the first chapter done

  2. Ben Lane-

    The first chapter may be done, but the book may not be fully done. This means the first chapter may change before the book is complete.

    If history repeats itself, the preview for the book would come out in the Spy Ski School paperback copy, which comes out at the same time as Waste of Space. The preview wouldn’t come in the hardcover copy.


  3. Okay this is what I said.

    Stu-It is fine that you don’t read fanfics, I think we all want you to focus on Spy School so you can put the books out faster.

    I saw this couple pages back, I think Erica is most likely taller than by an inch. But eventually, Ben will be taller than Erica. This is due to the fact that boys grow for a much longer period of time and girls start getting tall much earlier than boys.

  4. is ski spy school good i havent read it and is dying to read it i have the book on hold already!

  5. Lomash-

    I picture it a little like this:

    Mike-5’3 1/2

  6. Thanks JustinTB ,I’m just a noob at Stu’s books I only started reading this summer,but I already have Space case and Spaced out and all of the Spy schools and Belly up and just got Poached from my mom last night when I was in bed

  7. Ashley was a kind of a midget, right? But because of her being a gymnast I always picture her tall.
    Murray 5’2?

  8. A.M.-

    Well on the contrary, gymnasts are usually the shortest of the bunch, with Simone Biles, Gabby Douglas under 5 feet, and US’s Ragan Smith standing at 4’6”.

    I do think she is still taller than a lot of people in Spy School because she’s sixteen and everyone else hasn’t hit their spurt yet so they’re short by default.


  9. Erica’s gotta be tall tho. You can’t have an amazing, talented, world saving spy-to-be be short.

  10. To basically everyone-
    XD I can’t believe we have random conversations on how tall the characters are… It’s our second time starting that up XD

  11. Eleanor-

    Yes I believe she is. In the book, it doesn’t specifically say she’s sixteen and Ben says she is the same age as them, but honestly if you search up Ragan Smith she could pass as a thirteen year old. Anyways, according to the IOC, you have to be sixteen to compete anyways, so Ashley by default had to be at the very least sixteen.

    A.M.- Why not? The only reason I could think that you need to be tall is longer strides to run faster, but you don’t need to be Usain Bolt to be a spy.


  12. I wish you and your family a happy holidays and wish you the best of luck in 2017,
    can’t wait for your new books that are coming out in 2017!

  13. Yeah I think the books cover that Erica is tall

    However, I think that Erica is done or almost done growing…at least I think so due to fact she is fifteen.

    5’5 is pretty tall for a girl

    It’s pretty weird that Ben hasn’t hit his growth spurt yet, maybe he is a late bloomer xD

  14. Lomash-

    Well, to counter your point. Ben is in fact only thirteen. No scientific facts here, but based on my experience, around 1 out of every 2 guys do not start growing until fourteen or fifteen.


  15. Boys start growing at age 10 on average. I do agree that it varies for different people, plus Ben might have short parents…But 5’3 is pretty short for a kid in 8th grade like Ben.

    I think Ben is definitely shorter than Erica, but he can’t be 5’3 unless he is really short. I think Ben is 5’5 and Erica is 5’6 or an inch and 1/2 taller then Ben

  16. A.M-
    Hey what’s the name of your Wattpad account? I’ve figured out (I think) that you can in fact use it without an account.(Unless I just messed something up for a second that made me able to click on a story XD)

  17. To Mr. Stuart Gibbs-
    A FANTASTIC BOOK!!!!!! I loved it!
    Also, if you can, may you please have the next book out soon? I love this series!!!

  18. Books4life- I think it is TheSeventhWriter, I think this because I read his truth or dare xD. By the way, it’s good, please update it.

  19. Lomash-
    Yeah, that’s me, also please use they/them pronouns when referring to me in any situation 😉
    Plus, I did update. Part three is almost done.

  20. A.M-
    Alright,I’m gonna go read it now! Happy holidays!(I’ve already said that like a million times haven’t I?)

  21. Ben Lane –

    It is up to my publisher when to include chapters. I don’t think the publisher EVER includes a chapter in the hardback version of the book. Even though SS5 is mostly done, it doesn’t mean there still aren’t changes to make.

  22. Andrew & Ali –

    The fifth book will be out next fall. (Check the release calendar on the right hand side of my webpage for specifics as they arise.)

  23. I know you guys already wrote it down somewhere in these comments but that’s to much to go through so… What do we know so far about ss5

  24. Clara-

    Considering nothing has been released…well nothing. There is some general stuff (like Ben, Erica, Warren, Zoe will be there) that is out, but that’s because it is so general, and thus I don’t think that is what you wanted to know. However, I personally obtained info. from a classified source that a major fight scene will break out in the Smithsonian museums, specifically in the ********* ******* museum.
