Hachette Australia, 2015. ISBN 9780734415684
(Age: 9+) Highly recommended. Frankie Fox isn't like other girls. She rides motorbikes, goes kayaking and is training herself to be a spy. Her father is a famous scientist, her housekeeper might not be the loving friend Frankie thought and she is pretty sure the school bus driver just tried to kill her. When Frankie and her friend JJ try and visit her dad on Fortress Island they are taken by soldiers, soldiers claiming to be fighting against the evil Alliance group. Where is Frankie's dad? Who has kidnapped him? Why is her cute little dog considered an elite spy canine? How will Frankie rescue her dad?
Frankie Fox girl spy: Ready set spy is an excellent novel, breaking away from stereotypical roles and taking readers on an adventure. It will have them wondering who the different people in Frankie's life are - friend or foe - and have them cheering for Frankie as she plans to save her dad.
