The Genius Files: Mission Unstoppable by Dan Gutman

Here's a blurb from the book's website: In eight days, Coke and Pepsi McDonald are going to turn thirteen.

Before then, they'll jump off a cliff, get trapped in the locked basement of their burning school, chased cross-country by murderous lunatics, left for dead in the pit of a sand dune, forced to decipher mysterious coded messages, thrown into a giant vat of SPAM, and visit the world's largest . . . ball of twine!

There's more, but if we told you here, we'd have to kill you.

Megapopular author Dan Gutman brings on the excitement with an action-packed new series that's nothing short of dynamite. Join Coke and Pep on their quest to uncover just what it means to be part of The Genius Files . . . if you dare!

My Take

I don't read tons of middle-grade books.  I should definitely read more of them, especially if they are as good as this one.  This book was packed with action and all sorts of secret agent antics.

Coke and Pepsi were great characters.  This book is seriously funny.  I found myself laughing quite often.  I enjoyed seeing what would happen next as the twins made their way across the country in the rented Winnebago with their clueless parents.  I'm planning on reading the next in the series to see what happens to these two.  I'm giving this one 5 secret super agent kisses!

  1. I read MG sparingly, but this one looks irresistible.

    I see you're reading OTHER WORDS FOR LOVE. I read it months ago. I found it to be amazing.

  2. I can't wait to read this one! I received a copy of it from the publisher, and your review makes me want to read it even more. Thanks for the review!


I'd love to hear what your thoughts are regarding my posts! ~Thanks
