    What is a genius? You may think it is a very smart person, but a genius really is a muse or something that inspires someone. Michael Dante DiMartino must have a genius of his own because the world he creates in Rebel Genius is one of startling and amazing contrast to our own; a world where art is magic, but Supreme Creator Nerezza wants no one else to have the ability to create art except her, so she strips all artists of their geniuses and the artists become lost souls. Geniuses come in the form of our winged bird friends each with a magical jeweled crown and strong loyalty to their artists. The rebel artist Ugalino, who also wants the sacred tools, has stripped his genius of its magical crown jewel and wields it in a staff, so he can use its power. Not only does he have a magical staff, he has also created what the Zizzolian Empire sees as an abomination: The Tulpa. Ugalino’s tulpa has the strength of four men with four arms, four legs, and pale white skin and hair. He is under complete control of what Ugalino tells him… or is he? Giacomo is 12 years old when he first receives his genius, Mico, which is unusual because most artists receive their geniuses at a young age. Alone in the sewer, he is discovered by Aaminah, Savino, and Milena, each an artist with their own unique geniuses. Together, they form an unbreakable friendship, work with renowned artist Pietro Nasari, and journey to find the sacred tools that the Supreme Creator and Ugalino so desperately want. There is healing and death, action and peace, and unbelievable surprises along the way. Giacomo develops his power to tap into the wellspring, a place only unlocked by artists in pure concentration that enables them to create even living art. This is a must read for anyone who wants to find out if Giacomo and his friends can overcome the evil Ugalino and his Tulpa, defeat Supreme Creator Nerezza, and learn about sacred geometry and how things can be more than they seem.

    I don't know that I'd be able to keep what this book is about a secret after I read it because I just know that it will be amazing. Books that have to do with a race against time and secrets are always good. I want to know the secret and I want to know why it could possibly be a double-edged blade, both curse and gift.

    I really like science and it would be so cool to learn about how some mistakes made by scientists lead to great scientific discoveries. I see Einstein on the cover and I would really like to read about any mistakes that he could have made because he's a genius and that would be interesting. I would also like to see if anything we use in today's age was made because of a mistake.

    I love Ramona Quimby. I have even watched the movie about Ramona Quimby with Selena Gomez in it. Since this book is comparable to that book, I think I would really enjoy reading it and I think it would be fun to read with my sister.

    This book reminds me a little of Mulan because in the summary it talks about how they are looking for a male runner to run in this race and Avery, a girl, decides to hide her identity so that she can run. Mulan hid her identity so that she could fight in the war. I like stories that are very empowering and inspirational just like this one and I would love to read it.

    I would absolutely burst into fireworks if I won this book. I love science and science experiments. I am actually in a science club that works on science experiments so maybe we could use some from this book in the club. This is one of my favorite types of books because there are fun things to do in it. Nothing is more fun than reading and science put together.

    I have never read any of the 39 Clues series books. I have always wanted to and this would be the perfect opportunity. I do not have many mystery books in my collection. I have got recommendations from friends to read these books because it is a good mystery book series to start off with. I think I would enjoy reading this.
