Owen and his friends were practicing to be super spies.  They came up with an exciting plan to spy on their principal at his house.  This seemed like a really cool thing to do, until they started approaching the house.  None of them wanted to be “chicken” so they all went ahead with the plan.  Then there was a terrible incident where they were found out by the principal, and he wanted them to come back to his house in one week for punishment.  What a week that was!  What happened to the spies?  Read Owen Foote, Super Spy to find out!
