Bought this in the US whilst on hols this year having never heard of this author before.
My daughter 9 declares this to be her best book ever. Praise indeed.
Such a shame that he's not getting more exposure over here.
Here's Jessie's own review
If you love adventures, spies and missions, then look no further; this is the book for you!
A young boy called Reynie Muldoon lives in an orphanage and when he receives a letter asking `Are you a gifted child looking for special opportunities?', he finds himself taking a series of tests and becomes a spy facing challenges beyond his imagination.
With other orphans Kate, Constance and Sticky, they begin their spy training, working for Mr Benedict, Rhonda and No 2.
It's not long before they are sent on their first mission to school on Norman's Island to spy on the Headmaster, Mr Curtain. Suddenly, there are kidnappers, traps, mazes, brainwashing and mysterious `helpers'.
There are 473 breathtaking pages just waiting to be read. Take a look! This book is so exciting you won't be able to put it down. Will you uncover the mystery? You'll have to wait and see!
Say no more!
