School may be out for summer, but top-secret training continues for aspiring spy Ben Ripley--and so does the danger. Ben Ripley is a middle-schooler whose school is not exactly average--he's spent the last year training to be a top-level spy and dodging all sorts of associated 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, and the threats from SPYDER, an enemy spy organization, are as unavoidable as the summer heat. Will Ben be able to keep his cover--and his cool?
