LoveReading View on The Bad Spy's Guide

This book definitely gets into the category of 'books you can't put down' and has therefore rightly been chosen as one of the Blue Peter Book Award 'Books I couldn't put down' 2007.  It's a thriller but it's also full of humour;  a funny and subversive look at school life and spy culture.  Tasha, a girl obsessed with spies gets a tough time at school for being uncool and a big joke, until a new boy appears who says he IS a spy.  But is he?  Tasha is in for one hell of a shock.

Everyone thinks Tasha is a big joke because she is obsessed with spies. But when Henry, the new boy at school, accidentally mixes up his notebook with hers, Tasha has breathed her last ever bit of dull air. Henry tells her he is a teenage spy. And that he needs to use her room for surveillance on his latest targets.
