"Mrs. Smith's Spy School for Girls"

Beth McMullen is the author of the Mrs. Smith’s Spy School for Girls series and several adult mysteries. Her books have heroes and bad guys, action and messy situations. An avid reader, she once missed her subway stop and rode the train all the way to Brooklyn because the book she was reading was that good. She lives in Northern California with her family, two cats and a parakeet named Zeus, who is sick of the cats eyeballing him like he’s dinner.

McMullen applied the Page 69 Test to Mrs. Smith’s Spy School for Girls and reported the following:
From page 69:
Toby regroups and stands up straighter.

“Okay,” he says. “Pay attention. When you go back to school, act normal. Say nothing about what you’ve heard here today to anyone. That includes all those girls you hang around with.”

Well, that’s easy. Because I’m never talking to those girls again. None of this would be happening if they hadn’t blabbed about my escape.
This is the moment when Abby Hunter finds out that her boarding school sits atop a secret training facility for young spies. While trying to escape, she comes up against a mysterious man who tries to kidnap her. Fortunately, Toby was on to her and a rescue arrived just in time. But things are going to get much more complicated. Unbeknownst to Abby, her mother is a spy, too.
