The Super Spies are back in another action packed mystery, one that I thoroughly enjoyed reading. It was really hard to put this book down because I wanted to keep reading to find out what would happen next.

One of the big mysteries in The Super Spies and the High School Bomber is just who the intended target of the bomb was. The bomb went off during a high school faculty meeting, which means that any of the staff members could have been the intended target – and Sarah and Lacey’s (both sisters a

This is book 2 in the ‘Super Spies’ series, but may be read as a stand-alone novel.
This book starts off with a bang when a bomb explodes at the Super Spies high-school. Fortunately the pupils aren’t at school that day, but the teachers are.

Sarah and Lacey’s Uncle Walt is a teacher at the high school though, and they fear he may have been hurt in the blast. What was the cause of the

This story actually began with an explosion…

Sarah was shocked and physically hurt from the explosion but when the news about the bombing got spread around town, everyone felt panicked. People were injured and no one, except the bomber, knew why the school or someone inside the school was the target. Would the Super Spies be able to solve this mystery before more people got hurt?

The beginning of the story was a page-turner. No one really knew much of anything about what was going on and when some

If you thought The Super Spies and the Cat Lady Killer was a lovely read, wait until you read The Super Spies and the High School Bomber. As YA mysteries go, you can’t do much better.

In this new instalment of the Spies’ adventures, things are a bit darker and much more serious. Sarah and Lacey’s parents seem to have disappeared in mysterious circumstances, so they’re stuck at their aunt and uncle’s for the time being. When a bomb explodes during a teachers’ meeting at the high school, of course

The Super Spies are at it again! Sarah and Lacey Cole's day started more unusual than most. Sarah was thrown against the wall and received several cuts to her body. What was it? Sarah knew it was an explosion but just what caused that? She would soon find out, as would the rest of the town a bomb had gone off at the local high school during a faculty meeting. As clean up began, a second bomb went off. Uncle Walt was at that faculty meeting and Sarah couldn't reach him on the phone. The Super Spi ...more

The Super Spies are back again and this time they’re out to find the high school bomber! The Super Spies are a hilarious group of girls. Their wit and cunning ability to uncover cases reminds me of a modern(er) Nancy Drew mixed with the fun of The Mystery Gang. While part of me was laughing the other part of me was wrapped up in a blanket scared that something would happen to them.

I loved how every time I thought: oh no, you’re doing the wrong thing, you’re on the wrong track it’s not him/her it

REVIEW BY: Arianna, age 9 years, 9 months

In the beginning, Sarah and Lacy live with their aunt and uncle. The girls have their first day of school. Their uncle, who is a school teacher, is at the school for a meeting when a bomb goes off. Throughout the story, Sarah, Lacy, and their two best friends, Scott and Jackie try to find the person who set off the bomb. I give this book 5 out 5 stars. I think that anyone who likes action, mystery, and drama will enjoy this book so much that they will wan

Sarah and Lacy are spending the school year with their aunt and uncle because their parents have disappeared. No one knows what happened to them. Not only are their parents missing, but at the start of the school year a bomb goes off at the school and their Uncle Walt is inside.

Now Sarah and her Super Spies team are on the move again. They successfully solved the Cat Lady killer mystery this past summer, so nothing will stop them from finding out what happened at the school, which caused serious

I read the first book in this series and enjoyed it, so I was looking forward to reading the next. I have to say, it exceeded my expectations and my expectations were pretty high.

This novel quite literally starts out with a bang and then continues that way until the end. In my opinion, Lisa Orchard has a really good thing going here. Her characters work well together to tell the story and she fills her novels with plenty of mystery, giving you a reason to keep turning the page with anticipation

The wonderful Lisa Orchard is back with another gripping addition to her Super Spies Series! The Super Spies and the High School Bomber. Sarah, Lacy, Jackie, and Scott are still getting over solving The Cat Lady's murder when the small town is blasted into a new school year! We are instantly thrown into the action from the first page and you can't take a breath till the last!

This second book in the series is just as good, if not better than the first! You expect a wild ride and you are not disa

The first book in this series, Super Spies and the Cat Lady Killer was a very good book and I enjoyed this one even more. The plot of this book involves a bomb at a high school, a bit scary for kids considering the violence that happens at some schools, but there are no students harmed (only teachers are present at the school). The Super Spies – Lacy, Sarah, Jackie and Scott are caught up in trying to solve a the mystery of who set the bomb off and why. The book opens with a bang – literally – y ...more

The latest installment of Lisa Orchard’s Super Spies series is nearly as good as the first book; chock full of suspense, adventure, and mystery. It was hard to put down once I really got into the story and kept me on the edge of my seat the whole time. I like how these stories deal with some difficult subject matter, such as death, without becoming too dark. I also enjoyed seeing sisters Sarah and Lacey bond and become closer than they’ve ever been. While there isn’t anything wrong with Hinkle’s ...more

This is the 2nd story in the Super Spies series and it was great to be reintroduced to Sarah, her sister Lacey, her best friend Jackie and finally the newest member of the club,Scott.

The story starts with a bang, quire literally when a bomb explodes at the local high school. Fearing for her uncles life (school teacher), Sarah and the Super Spies race to the school to see what they can find out. Sarah's "detective" senses are on high alert when a chance meeting with a fireman at the scene doesn't

***3 1/2 stars***

For the age this book is written for, I thought it was well written and interesting enough to keep a young lady's attention.

The girls get into enough dangerous situations that you'll cringe with fear and gasp with relief when they are safe again. :) Sarah can be a little on the sassy side but the three girls get along well enough and there'll be some laughs at some of their interactions.

*Thanks to SLBTours and the author for a complimentary copy of this book for review purposes.
