Michael Buckley is at his comic best in this madcap new series sure to appeal to kids looking for a quick, exciting read.

Combining all the excitement of international espionage and all the awkwardness of elementary school, NERDS, featuring a group of unpopular students who run a spy network from inside their school, hits the mark. With the help of cutting-edge science, their nerdy qualities are enhanced and transformed into incredible abilities! They battle the Hyena, a former junior beauty pageant contestant turned assassin, and an array of James Bond–style villains, each with an evil plan more diabolical and more ridiculous than the last.

F&P level: V

Praise for NERDS
“An action-packed, tongue-in-cheek take on the world of superheroes and villains. The pacing is quick and the action is plentiful—kids will almost hear the sound effects as they read. NERDS brings a worthy message to the fore—that uncool kids can grow up to be anything but. Funny, clever, and thoroughly entertaining, this title should be popular.”
School Library Journal

"The unique format of this book, combined with the imaginative and playful storyline, will appeal to many readers."

This action, spy and comedy book is called N.E.R.D.S. by: Michael Buckley. This book is about 6 kids going on dangerous missions trying to save the world. The main person in this book is Jackson Jones. He was the QB of the school's football team but he got cut for his bad grades. He later found the NERDS hiding place and later joined. Not everyone was happy of Jackson joining them because he used to be a bully. The NERDS are Jackson Jones, Matilda Choi, Duncan Dewey, Heathcliff Hodges, Julio Escala and Ruby Peet. All of these kids have different powers such as, Matilda Choi beating Jackson Jones, Julio Escala gets SUPER hyper when he eats junk food. Well, Duncan he eats Glue! Read this book to find out what crazy missions they go on!

Nerds is a team of spies. When it comes to the word, "spies". you would imagine a bunch of highly trained adults, right? Well, this is a team consisting of KID spies. Jackson Jones, the newest recruit, has to go through a bunch of training sessions and observations to become one of the crew. But the only problem is that the kids already on the team do not like Jackson. How is he going to be a part of a team that does not accept him?

AMAZING!!!!!! ✨✨✨😛😛👍💯✔

Its so funny because a boy is having a bad time in a accent.

If your a nerd this book will show you how cool nerds can be what cool things nerd can do.

This book is super funny. I would consider myself a nerd, and its very relateable and humorous. It had me laughing out loud several times. It had a few "interactive" parts and illustrations, which kept me interested and entertained. It also contains some pretty sweet action scenes,

pretty cool old scool quirky fun
