Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A smart and funny tale of perseverance, teamwork, and the true meaning of success.

Strange things are happening at Ho-Ho-Kus Junior High. The cafeteria is covered in a sea of burger wrappers. Bullies aren’t bullying anymore. And there’s an eerie growling coming from the walls.

If anyone can get to the bottom of these mysteries, it’s Denton, Wendell, Eddie, Elijah, and Bijay. They may be misfits, but they’re also the smartest kids in the eighth grade. There’s just one problem. Vice Principal Snodgrass has framed them for a crime they didn’t commit and imprisoned them in a secret room in the bowels of the school. His terms: Ace the dreaded Idaho Tests and all will be forgiven. Their plan: figure out who—or what—is to blame for the changes at school. It will take the nerdiest of skills. It will be scarier than talking to girls. It will be a true test, one that can be passed only by a select few. And those five boys are known as DWEEB.

Synopsis:

When weird things start happening at their junior high, 8th-graders Denton, Wendell, Eddie, Elijah, and Bijay, better known as DWEEB, know they are the only ones who have the smarts to solve the mystery, but with Vice Principal Snodgrass on their case, the challenge to do so becomes even greater.

Synopsis:

After being framed for stealing bake sale money, the five smartest boys in the eighth grade are imprisoned in a small room beneath their junior high school in Ho-Ho-Kus, New Jersey, and must use their nerdish powers to expose a conspiracy involving fast food, standardized testing, and a school full of overachieving zombies.
