- Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2017 June #1
It's a rude awakening for Abigail when she opens an acceptance letter from the Smith School for Children, a preppy boarding school in Connecticut, to which she hadn't even applied. Her mother, on the other hand, is less ignorant of this matter, having decided that her rule-breaking daughter could benefit from a more focused environment. Old habits die hard, however, and Abigail has no problem sneaking out of her dorm or breaking into Headmistress Smith's office on a dare; yet, after a bungled escape attempt, the plucky seventh-grader goes from schoolyard snoop to live bait. Mrs. Smith reveals that the Smith School doubles as a spy school affiliated with the Center, a secret intelligence organization, and they need Abigail's help finding their top agentâher mother. Mind effectively blown, Abigail agrees. An action-filled romp ensues, which first-time author McMullen appropriately outfits with gadgets, close calls, thwarted plans, and a villainous criminal spy group. Abigail's entertaining narration tempers suspense with levity, and readers will have a blast accompanying her through sticky situations. Copyright 2017 Booklist Reviews.
