When the top-secret spy agency that recruited Bridget turns out to be a fake, Bridget hopes her superspy father will teach her his tricks (WRONG!). Instead he wants to bond over normal (aka BORING!) stuff. But when Bridget gets framed for stealing cheerleading secrets and ruining the most glamorous party of the birthday season, her spy instincts kick in: she’s being set up. And when her spy dad goes missing, Bridget knows she’s the only one who can bring him back alive --- official spy or not.

Up until Bridget’s birthday the most exciting moment in her life was when Dale Tookey maybe, sort of, smiled at her one time. But that was before --- before she found a mysterious present at her doorstep, before she was transported to a covert CIA agency called Section 23 and before she became Bridget Wilder: Spy-in-Training. Now Bridget’s busting boys out of detention, being chauffeured by a talking car, and infiltrating the popular girls’ clique to steal secret codes, all while undercover as a semi-awkward middle school girl. But will she be able to keep up with her new action-packed life?
