City Spies (Compact Disc)
Nobody expects the Spanish Inquisition and nobody expects elite spies to be middle schoolers. Five kids from around the world are transformed into MI6 spies courtesy of "Mother" - a charming British spy (think Sean Connery with parenting skills) This book is so much fun (plus it's a series).— Abbe
A mystery and page turner, City Spies is an exciting story about a spy organization based in Scotland. The team is made up of five kids with talents ranging from explosives to hacking. I especially enjoyed this book because of the unique developed characters from around the world and the adventures the spies took. If you love The Mysterious Benedict Society series or the Mo and Dale Myesteries, you'll love City Spies! This is a must read!!!— Laurel
In this thrilling new series that Stuart Gibbs called "a must-read," Edgar Award winner James Ponti brings together five kids from all over the world and transforms them into real-life spies--perfect for fans of Spy School and Mrs. Smith's Spy School for Girls.Sara Martinez is a hacker. She recently broke into the New York City foster care system to expose her foster parents as cheats and lawbreakers. However, instead of being hailed as a hero, Sara finds herself facing years in a juvenile detention facility and banned from using computers for the same stretch of time. Enter Mother, a British spy who not only gets Sara released from jail but also offers her a chance to make a home for herself within a secret MI6 agency. Operating out of a base in Scotland, the City Spies are five kids from various parts of the world. When they're not attending the local boarding school, they're honing their unique skills, such as sleight of hand, breaking and entering, observation, and explosives. All of these allow them to go places in the world of espionage where adults can't. Before she knows what she's doing, Sarah is heading to Paris for an international youth summit, hacking into a rival school's computer to prevent them from winning a million euros, dangling thirty feet off the side of a building, and trying to stop a villain...all while navigating the complex dynamics of her new team. No one said saving the world was easy...
