My son is now 10 and he is actively looking forward to the 3rd book!
That's when Jackson learns that his school is the headquarters for a super secret spy program made up of kids. Much to the other NERDS' dismay, he is asked to join their team. Can he get the hang of his new responsibilities in time to save the world?
This book may be aimed at kids, but I loved it. The obvious spoof references to James Bond and the spy genre in general will tickle adult's funny bones. Yet there is enough humor that the kids will get as well. While there is a lot that feels like set up for the rest of the series, it was all highly entertaining. I was never bored once while reading. Outside of Jackson, I never quite felt like the rest of the team stood out, although some of the other characters were memorable.
The book went by all too quickly, and I was sorry to finish it. I can hardly wait for the next adventure of the team.
The plot is that Dr. Jigsaw plans to move all the continents together to make Pangaea using a tractor beam, and then take over it. N.E.R.D.S. stands for National Espionage, Rescue, And Defense Society. Aside from the N.E.R.D.S. team themselves, there are some other people who are part of N.E.R.D.S. including: Agent Brand the director, Ms. Holiday is the librarian and briefer, The Lunch Lady is the Orbital Jet driver. And the scientists who create all the technology that the N.E.R.D.S. team uses.
The children's special abilities make the book very interesting. The special abilities are built around the characters weakness. The ability transforms the so-called weakness into an advantage, covering it up completely. Take Ruby Peet for example. Ruby suffers from the worst case of allergies in world history. After gaining her special abilities she could make her allergies work for her by letting her sense stuff like danger and betrayal. You can also take Jackson as an example.Read more ›
