Shout Out: Frankie Fox, Girl Spy

Frankie thinks she's just a normal 11-year-old girl. She hangs out with her best friend and plays with her dog. She also likes solving puzzles and reading about secret agents. So, imagine her excitement when she discovers someone is training her to be a spy!

In Book 1, Frankie Fox: Ready, Set, Spy, Frankie's billionaire inventor dad is kidnapped by the mysterious and evil group known as the Alliance. It's time for Frankie to put her spy skills to work and rescue him.

In Book 2, Frankie Fox: Operation Boy Band, Frankie is on an undercover operation at an international kids' robotics competition when she discovers the world's number one boy band, Band of Brothers, is brainwashing kids to serve the evil Alliance.

This is a new series by the author of the popular 'Ella and Olivia' books. It's the perfect next step for slightly more confident readers who are now ready to tackle stories with more words and more complex plots.
