NERDS: National Espionage, Rescue, and Defense Society (Book One) by Michael Buckley
NERDS: National Espionage, Rescue, and Defense Society (Book One)

weeboop, June 30, 2013

This is a book for readers of all ages! Michael Buckley has a way of telling the story of the NERDS Team that makes the reader feel like they are a part of the team and the humor in this book will get even non-readers to read. Kids will love the adventures the NERDS go on and they will love that kids are the ones to save the world with little adult help. There are subtle lessons in this book that adults will notice and could lead to some discussions about bullying and judging people by their looks.
