More About the Author

This is hard. I'm a pretty regular Jersey guy who spent fifteen years trying to write newspaper articles, magazine articles, screenplays, books for adults, and just about everything else before I discovered the one thing I'm good at--writing fiction for kids. I aim for kids who DON'T like to read, and hopefully the kids who DO like to read will enjoy my stuff too. For all the gory details about me, check out my web site.

Format: Hardcover
Thirteen-year-old twins Coke and Pepsi McDonald are tangled in the midst of a terrible torture: a cross-country journey in an RV with their parents. They started out in California and are now about halfway through in Wisconsin. So far they have managed to survive, which is saying a lot. Not only have they been subjected to many weird and wacky (though interesting) tourist traps, like the world's biggest ball of twine and the Spam museum, there are insane people trying their hardest to kill them. Some may wonder why anyone would want to do such harm to two 13-year-olds, but Coke and Pep are no ordinary teenagers. They are part of a secret program called the Genius Files, and they have some major enemies.

The second leg of their journey takes the McDonald family from Spring Green, Wisconsin, all the way to Washington, D.C. Some of their fun stops this time include a look at the world's tallest man's pants, Michael Jackson's boyhood home, the world's largest collection of outhouses, a Chicago Cubs baseball game, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and (the best part) a day at the Cedar Point amusement park with awesome roller coasters. In between all of the sightseeing, somebody unknown keeps slipping them secret encoded messages. Now, while Coke has a photographic memory and is fast-thinking on his feet, Pep has real talent for deciphering codes. Each code is different, and some are harder than others, but Pep manages to figure them all out. Unfortunately, even after decoded, they don't make much sense.

Another unfortunate situation is that somebody keeps trying to kill the twins. First it's in a fake French fry museum where they are almost boiled in hot oil. Later, they're nearly frozen in ice cream, and then they come close to having their heads explode with extremely loud music.

It was a amazing book with suspense and great detail. The twins find themselves in great trouble and epic escapes. It had a ending with a twist and cliff hanger

I think this was a great book but the epilogue really shocked me that Herman Warsaw was still alive after the fall and what the newspaper said
