About the book
When Ben is asked to join the Academy of Espionage, he is absolutely thrilled. He heads off to the boarding school, which his parents think is a science academy, in order to learn the ins and outs of becoming a spy. Things don’t go smoothly however, as the school mistakenly thinks that Ben has an extraordinary aptitude for cryptography, he fails the initial Survival and Combat Skills Assessment, and an assassin tries to kill him–and that’s all in his first day! Spy school turns out to be a lot harder and more dangerous than Ben thought it could be, and he is going to have to be a quick learner because he suddenly becomes involved in a plot to take down a double agent.
