(from the author) Can an undercover nerd become a superstar secret agent? Maybe not, but it'll be fun to watch him try! Ben Ripley may only be in middle school, but he's already pegged his dream job: C.I.A. or bust. Unfortunately for him, his personality doesn't exactly scream "secret agent." In fact, Ben is so awkward, he can barely get to school and back without a mishap. Because of his innate nerdiness, Ben is not surprised when he is recruited for a magnet school with a focus on science but he's entirely shocked to discover that the school is actually a front for a junior C.I.A. academy. Could the C.I.A. really want "him"? Actually, no. There's been a case of mistaken identity but that doesn't stop Ben from trying to morph into a supercool undercover agent, the kind that always gets the girl. And through a series of hilarious misadventures, Ben realizes he might actually be a halfway decent spy...if he can survive all the attempts being made on his life.  (South Carolina Junior Book Award nominee 2015,  Prepared by: Michal Hope Brandon, Muller Road Middle School, mbrandon@richland2.org)
