The Hunt for the Missing Spy

amazon barnes & noble Goodreads
Cherry blossoms, the Smithsonian, and a hunt for a missing spy.

The Code Busters club, along with the rest is their sixth grade class is taking a field trip to Washington DC to visit the International Spy museum and the other amazing sites. But when threats and a missing spy threaten to ruin their plans the Code Busters need to sharpen their skills to get on top of this mystery.

Hott Review:

What I liked: The Hunt for the Missing Spy is a terrific middle-grade mystery that most readers, and reluctant readers are sure to enjoy. The short chapters and activities make this a perfect choice for those who have trouble staying interested while the mystery and adventure will please reading enthusiasts.
What I didn’t like: The only negative thing I can say is that unless you print out the key codes it would be better to read a physical copy than an ebook. Until I got out my snazzy Code Busters key cards it was frustrating to flip between my place in the book and the clues.
