I took part in a fun “How I Got My Agent” blog post over at Beth McMullen’s blog last week. Beth is a fellow middle grade debut author whose book, MRS. SMITH’S SPY SCHOOL FOR GIRLS, released in July.
Here’s a quick summary:
A girl discovers her boarding school is actually an elite spy-training program, and she must learn the skills of the trade in order to find her mother in this action-packed middle grade debut.
After a botched escape plan from her boarding school, Abigail is stunned to discover the school is actually a cover for an elite spy ring called The Center, along with being training grounds for future spies. Even more shocking? Abigail’s mother is a top agent for The Center and she has gone MIA, with valuable information that many people would like to have—at any cost. Along with a former nemesis and charming boy from her grade, Abigail goes through a crash course in Spy Training 101, often with hilarious—and sometimes painful—results. But Abigail realizes she might be a better spy-in-training than she thought—and the answers to her mother’s whereabouts are a lot closer than she thinks…
I haven’t read MRS. SMITH’S SPY SCHOOL FOR GIRLS yet, but I can’t wait to curl up with it soon. Boarding school. Spy training. A charming nemesis. It’s bound to be a fun read.
And so is Beth’s “How I got my agent” story. Talk about 6 degrees of Kevin Bacon.
Check out the post over at Beth’s site – and maybe pick up a copy of her novel while you’re there.
