Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Millions adore him. A philanthropist. Anti-drug crusader. Peace activist. And former pop star the likes of which the world has never seen. Sir Damian Cray even has the president's ear. Yet the president's ear is not enough for Damian — he wants more. Such as the President's fingerprints. So he can manipulate computer systems only the President of the United States has access to. So he can launch nuclear missiles. From aboard Air Force One. All in the name of peace....So what if a few million lives are lost in the process? Teen spy Alex Rider survives a bullfight, a high-speed bicycle chase through Amsterdam, and even being the target in a human video-game, only to face his most disturbing challenge yet: when the best of intentions are driven by insanity, how do you reason with a madman?

Synopsis:

A group of unpopular fifth graders run a spy network from inside their school. With the help of cutting-edge science, they transform their nerdy qualities into incredible abilities! In the seriesand#8217; second installment, Duncan Dewey (code name: Gluestick) leads the team against a supervillain who used to be a member of NERDS. But has the team become too dependent on their supergadgets? It will take old-fashioned brainpower and bravery to save the world again.
