This was even better than book one. There is more action, more at stake, and more people that know Bridget's secret. I also enjoyed that the geek had such a big role in this book. That brings me to the gadgets. They were my favorite part of this book! I wish I could use some when I was in school, I would have had Bridget get me some! There is also more bonding in this book. Between family members and friends. This would make a great Saturday morning series for girls. There is travel as well, and it was interesting to read how Bridget got out of trouble while out of her comfort zone. I am giving this book a 5/5. All opinions are my own.
Middle school meets Mission: Impossible in the second hilarious adventure of a girl whose life is turned upside down when her long-lost father recruits her to be a superspy.
When the top-secret spy agency that recruited Bridget turns out to be a fake, Bridget hopes her superspy father will teach her his tricks, stealth codes, and martial-arts moves (WRONG!). Instead of drop-kicking evil villains and shooting laser beams from her lip gloss, he wants to bond over normal (aka BORING!) stuff like TV, fro yo, and boy talk. But when Bridget gets framed for stealing cheerleading secrets and ruining the most glamorous party of the birthday season, her spy instincts kick in: she’s being set up. And when her spy dad goes missing, Bridget knows she’s the only one who can bring him back alive—official spy or not.
Now Bridget’s back in the spy game and on a plane headed straight to New York City with her best friend by her side and a crafty nanomarble sidekick that does everything from hacking phones to taking down the fiercest enemy agents. Can Bridget ditch her annoying older brother/chaperone, squash a budding crush, and prevent global disaster before her mom texts to check in? Or are Bridget’s days as a spy over—for good?
It is no secret—Bridget Wilder: Spy to the Rescue is part of an explosive new series packed with humor, high-tech gadgets, and best of all: girl power.
