About P.E.P. Squad:
An altercation with a gunman on a French beach leaves fledgling P.E.P. Squad agent Jess Leclair scarred. Things get worse when she returns to Theruse Abbey and fails her start of year physical. Entering freshman year on probation, Jess has to master seven languages, tackle obstacles courses that would make a SAS recruit cry, and cope with the ever moody Krivan as a lab partner.
When a rival spy agency abducts Agent Krivlyakaev, it is up to Jess and Krivan to use all their spy skills and ingenuity to do what fully fledged P.E.P. Squad agents do best - go into enemy territory and bring their target back alive.
