Middle school meets Mission Impossible in this hilarious spy series for fans of Chris Rylander, Stuart Gibbs, and Ally Carter about a girl whose life is turned upside down when she discovers her father is a superspy.
Up until Bridget’s birthday the most exciting moment in her life was when Dale Tookey maybe, sort of, smiled at her one time. But that was before—before she found a mysterious present at her doorstep, before she was transported to a covert CIA agency called Section 23, and before she became Bridget Wilder: Spy-in-Training. Now Bridget’s busting boys out of detention, being chauffeured by a talking car, and infiltrating the popular girls’ clique to steal secret codes, all while undercover as a semi-awkward middle school girl. But will she be able to keep up with her new action-packed life?
It is no secret—Bridget Wilder: Spy-in-Training is the start of an explosive new series packed with gadgets, humor, and best of all: girl power.

Synopsis- Bridget Wilder is the sort of child you never remember. Her older brother is a juvenile delinquent, and her younger sister is perfect. A devil, an angel, and Bridget. Then, on her [forgotten] birthday, she receives a mysterious bag with a broken smart phone, tic-tacs she doesn’t like, and lip gloss that doesn’t open. When Bridget gets a call on the smart phone, she realizes her life will be changed forever. Bridget was adopted, but she learns that her birthfather is a secret agent for the Central Intelligence Agency. Not only that, but she may be good secret agent material too! But what if being a secret agent ends up being more than meets the eye? What I Thought- There has been quite a lot of spy/secret agent books coming to my review pile lately. It’s nice to see a fresh take on this theme. This was a fun secret agent book. Mr. Bernstein does a great job getting the reader involved in the story. Bridget is a great character, and totally believable as the middle child who is always forgotten. I liked the action and mystique in the plot. I was not expecting the twist at the end of the book (won’t tell you – you have to read it ;) ). It was a pleasant surprise to be a bit shocked – I love it when stories are not predictable. The writing was smooth and the story was told in a way that it will appeal to a wide age range. I think fans of James Bond will like this book a lot, I know I did. *NOTE* I got a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review
