Kate (girlonabikedc) | 3 comments I read this book in the late 80's/early 90's, but I have a feeling it was published in the 60's or 70's. It was about a boy who attends a new school, and no one is who they seem to be. I believe it was a British story, because there was a remark about how one of the teachers was American and hadn't lost her accent completely yet. The clearest thing I can remember is that one of the characters was named Baroness. I also believe the ending was quite violent.

I've been searching and searching, but can't find it. Thanks!

Tab (tabbrown) | 4967 comments Does the reader know at the beginning that the school is full of spies? Or, do they come to find out?

And, what genre would you consider it? Suspense, fantasy, mystery, etc?

Kate, are you still looking for this book?

Kate (girlonabikedc) | 3 comments Yes I am!

And I can't remember if it was revealed they are spies in the beginning or not.

I do recall one of the teachers as being an American that never fully lost their accent.

Point Blank
It's about a young spy, Alex Rider who works for MI6. He goes to a suspicious elite prep school because of mysterious deaths. There's always a lot of shooting and action in the Alex Rider series and I'd say they're mostly aimed at the middle school age group.

Kate (girlonabikedc) | 3 comments Yup, that's not it though. I read this book in the 80's and it was very Cold War centered.
