EJ Spy School: The Race

Agent EJ10 is Emma’s code name. She is now part of Shine Spy Agency. Her spy watch summons her
during lunchtime and she must follow the instructions on the screen. The tunnel she travels through leads her to the Operations Room. It is training time and EJ has new skills to learn in a race against time.

Book 2 in the EJ series increases in interest and activity, while carrying an underlying message that gender is no barrier to excelling at anything. It focuses on self improvement, physical activity and imagination. This series shows promise. I see it as evolving to incorporate in a positive way, a range of issues that younger girls face.
