    One thought on “Spy High Mission One”

    1. You know that series you become unduly obsessed with when your young? They're usually books no one else have heard of. They aren't available at the library. But you love them with the fiery passion of a cult leader, and you spend the next three months of sixth grade fruitlessly trying o get others to read these books.The was the Spy High series for me. They're young adult books that are accessible to children as young as fourth grade but are interesting enough for Freshmen to read. The character [...]

    2. If I could give this book zero stars I would. I couldn't even finish reading it, which is saying a lot for me. I read anything. I just go so bored I couldn't keep going. I felt like I was walking in Molasses trying to get to the point of the book. It was fairly cliche and the writing at some parts was just annoying. But to each his own, some people may like it, but I wouldn't dust a spot on my shelf for this book.

    3. With the way this book started out, I wasn't sure if it was going to be a 3 star read or a 3.5 star read. I liked the storyline, but in the first chapter I didn't like ANY of the main characters at all It took learning their backstories for me to actually be interested in them, but thankfully that happened within the next few chapters. I am still confused on how old they are though I think I read early on in the book that they were around 14 or 15, but I really hope they were older with how they [...]

    4. Man, oh man. Just from the cover you can tell this book was going to be a worse-than-cheesy read, and that was before you knew of the genetic-mutations added in. Spy High Mission One seemed like a cross between two specific movies: 2003's Agent Cody Banks (a movie I randomly found, and didn't finish, about a kid that graduates from a spy camp in order to complete a mission involving wooing a girl) and 2012's The Amazing Spiderman (the one with Andrew Garfield and the lizard/scientist enemy).Ther [...]

    5. I bought this book a few years ago, wondering if it would be appropriate for my children who are going through a "spy" stage in their play and reading. Sadly, the answer is, "no."The writing itself is very typical YA fare -- nothing outstanding, nothing too deep or difficult, but it doesn't talk "down" to an average reader either.However, the book suffers from a lack of focus for its intended audience. The relationships, the blood and gore, death, age of the main characters, etc speak to a high [...]

    6. Genre: Spy NovelYou would think teenage spies are only in movies, but for the kids on the Bond Team at Spy High, it's their reality. Spy High is a secret school dedicated to the training of teenagers to become top spies. And when one unit of the academy, the Bond Team are sent their first mission, they are thrown into a world that they realize they weren't ready forThis book was very enjoyable to read, because I love teenage spy stories and this was right down my alley. AJ Butcher does a great j [...]

    7. Let's start with Ben StantonHe is a dick, plain and simple. I'm not even going to list any good stuff about him because it doesn't exist.Lori AngelAirhead? She kind of gave that aura. Flat? Very Like a little puppy,when Ben asks her to jump, she asks how high. Pathetic.I kind of feel bad for herJake Freaking DalyOmg, I can't ughGoodness. And the 'rivalry' between Ben and Jake? whtvs But I kind of pictured him as bamofoCallyShe's actually pretty decentEddieStupidHe's not even funnyJennifer ChenNo [...]

    8. I stumbled into this book looking for something for my classroom library. Several of my better readers had just finished up the Alex Rider series leaving them to want more. This series fit the bill. This group of boys were totally sucked into this series from the first chapter! I started reading them as well and complete understood why my boys continued to ask me to buy the next book in the series. This book (as well as the entire series) is a must have for an upper elementary or middle school c [...]

    9. I picked this up looking for another series like Alex Rider. Unfortunately, this is nothing by goofiness, terrible similes, and flat characters. The author also doesn't know how to use multiple POV (why introduce Devereaux Academy through Eddie and not Cally? Cally, as a techno-thief, might pay attention to the windows, the cameras, the slant of the floors, and give more life into the building). Everything else is a cliche, not from bad spy movies, but from bad pastiches of bad spy movies.It get [...]

    10. Six teenagers get selected to go to Devereaux Academy, affectionately known by those who attend as Sky High. They're put in a group to fight together: Ben, Jake, Eddie, Cally, Lori, and Jennifer. But they don't get along. The theme of this book is the problems of working together with so many with such different backgrounds. Finally, after two failures at the Stromfeld test, they're sent out into the wilderness, where people have been disappearing, and they face a real megalomaniac.A great book, [...]

    11. When I started this book, I honestly didn't think I was going to like it, especially after I finished the first chapter, but I actually ended up really liking it. The story was well written and fast-paced. I will recommend this to students, especially boys because I think they will enjoy the action and spy intrigue. There is also an undercurrent of romance which is not too much for boys but will satisfy girls who like some romance (like me).

    12. Not great, but not terrible. I must say, at the very least, that Butcher has created an interesting array of characters; however, his overall plot seems overly predictable and, at times, tiresome. The book is a quick read, and seems to appeal to readers (in my library at least).Though I wasn't particularly drawn into the book as I hoped, I will still read the others in the series to see if his story becomes more compelling.

    13. Some may say this book is pretty childish, and I do admit it, but I also think it is also a nice book because it involves sophisticated technology and modern fantasy, both themes I like a lot. With thrilling adventures and stuff, I think it was worth the time I took to read it.

    14. Bad book. Humans were mutalated, the whole time I was wondering WHY someone would write something like that. Thumbs DOWN¡¡¡¡

    15. This book was a cool but I think if your not a big fan of romance then this book is not for you and if I was able to pick a different book I would.

    16. Not as good as I had hoped, but it was a good and quick read. Much more fantasy than I expected, there are some really strange parts -- half human-half animal, mad scientist, etc.

    17. This was an amazing book! Tons of action, lots of cool spy gadgets, and lots more in this ridiculously entertaining book!

    18. I think this series is aimed at teanagers so not sure what it means that I liked it. You've seen the premise a few times before: A secret school where a collection of outcast but genius kids train to be spies and learn to be a team. The kids are a WWII combat platoon of "one of each" style of misfit (but balanced gender-wise), the tech is sci fi, their character problems believable. The action is nicely done. You worry how they will succeed and they manage to do it more or less plausibly. Wish I [...]

    19. Picked this up a library sale - looked intriguing, and it was.As with most dsytopian novels, the future looks bleak, but there are those who are still fighting for good. The future has been harmed by the choices of those in the past. There are romances brewing all over the place.

    20. Thais was a fun, short book that was entertaining and helped to pass the time. It was a children's book, or perhaps for middle school reluctant readers. It was nice enough, but Ben was rather annoying, especially in the beginning.He was never given a "Save the Cat" moment! We have absolutely no reason to root for him. He doesn't really change either. He is pretty much the same by the end of the book. It felt like this book was supposed to be anchored by Ben's character as the main one, but he wa [...]

    21. An enjoyable beginning to a pretty good series. The book’s futuristic world is under constant threat from all kinds of terrorists. Several kids are recruited to “Spy High” to be put into different teams and compete in a variety of rigorous challenges.Character development, usually the mark of an above-average or great series, is executed very well. The main characters are “Bond Team”: Ben (a coolheaded yet cocky rich kid and complete jerk who’s all about himself), Jake (a fiery, self [...]

    22. read by: Kaycee Groves The author describes well and lets you know what is happening. Also, this book is an action book which I like. Spy High Mission One is a story about six students who have been recruited to Deveraux Academy otherwise known as Spy High. Ben, Bond team leader, is an overachiever who has to be 1st a everything. Lori is a rich girl while Cally lived on the streets. Eddie is a annoying SkyBike rider while Jake is a poor domer. and Jennifer is a karate and kung fu expert.The 6 me [...]

    23. Jobs is normal,well,hes a geek but he is still normal he's just a regular 14 year old boy living in califorinia in the year 2011.So one day while he is driving his car he hears a phrase from a news report on the screen in his car,something about earth being imperiled,so he replays the story,It's about a recently discovered asteroid that will collide with earth in 5 days.Its 76 miles long the one that killed the dinosaurs was what 10 miles long Scientists say that the planet could litterlally bre [...]

    24. This book was at times very interesting, but mostly it was slow and boring and I pretty much hated it. I looked at the cover and said, "Hmmm maybe I'll give it a try." Now I'm kind of wishing I hadn't. I don't know whether it was the mutations that happened or how the story had an introduction lasting all the way to the middle of the book.I would not recommend this to anyone, unless you like hearing about a madman who mutates human beings into weird creatures and enjoy strange occurrences that h [...]

    25. i thought this book spy high was ok. it had a lame start, you could tell they wanted your attention but they didn't know what to do with it when they had it. overall not a bad book it tried many things and liked to throw gadgets into the mix which sometimes worked. it focused on a team and tried to add drama between them which ruined the “spy” aspect for me. they seemed too childish to be spies. the characters aren't that great either, they are either cliche, generic, or just not good people [...]

    26. Entertaining but it definitely has it's eye-rolly moments. It did pick up action wise, towards the end of the book, but for a book with less than 200 pages, this took me way too long to finish. Some happenings at the very end of the book was very unnecessary in my opinion, and to end the book with that as one of the last things on my mind, ugh. I enjoyed the fact that Bond Team had some diversity with one African American and one Chinese American in their ranks. Several of them were also from di [...]

    27. I enjoyed the story of this book but sometimes it was really confusing to read and it was hard to follow what was going on.This book the story of six teenage spies, Jake, Ben, Eddie, Cally, Jennifer, and Lori. In order to graduate from the academy, the spies need to complete, and pass a computerized test. If Bond team fails one more time then they are kicked out of the academy, and minds are erased! The Team has failed two of these tests, due to lack of team cooperation so the Head Master sends [...]

    28. Overall, I enjoyed this book. However, the first chapter was a little rough, as it was a scene that belonged somewhere in the middle of the book. In fact, I feel like the author actually wrote it as a later scene and decided to move it so he could start off with a bang (quite literally, even). There were references to people and things that didn't make sense to me at the time--things I stored away in my mind to decipher later. So, it was a little hard to get into, an a little choppy sometimes af [...]
