Vi Spy: Licence to Chill
Publisher: Chicken House
The day Vi’s Mum is going to marry Mr Sprout is the day Vi discovers some of the truth about her family. And very quickly her life is turned on its head.
As she tries to come to terms with her new knowledge, an evil supervillain emerges from the shadows and threatens everything she values.
Can Vi not only foil the baddies but also do it in time to prevent her Mum’s brain exploding? Well, maybe, but she might need a little help from her friends - and the OAP branch of the Secret Service….
This is the first in a new series of adventures for Vi the wannabe spy and is packed with jokes, thrills and important life lessons – like being especially careful when considering making an alliance with a supervillain. The plot is compelling, if ridiculous, and the many twists and turns will keep readers guessing.
Although the humour and inventiveness alone make this worth a read, the thrills are absolutely genuine – especially when the tension is ratcheted up to 11 for the final showdown. And underneath it all there’s a comforting story about loyalty, friendship, blended families and love.
