October 28th's Book Beginning and Friday 56

Welcome to the last Friday before Halloween, and this week's edition of Book Beginning and Friday 56.

If you are expecting a spooky title from me, you'll be disappointed.  Instead, I have Spy Ski School by Stuart Gibbs.  It's a middle grade book with lots of humor, and yes, a few dangers along the way.

When I picked up the book and read the first line, I knew I had to use it this week.

The summons to the principal's office arrived in the middle of my Advanced Self-Preservation class.

Stuart always offers some of my favorite first lines.

Moving ahead to page 56, we find:

"We'll look less suspicious if we're eating," Erica explained.  "Like two kids who just went out for pizza, rather than two spies on a recon mission."

Okay, not as pithy, but if you know Erica from the series, that is still rather fun.

I'm reviewing the book on Sunday, so I do hope you'll come back by and see what I thought of it.


  1. The title made me smile and I think this is one I would enjoy.

  3. This looks so fun! I've been in a middle grade mood lately so that makes this look extra appealing.

  5. I've heard this series is a lot of fun!
