What better time to read then during a blizzard? So, for the Blizzard of 2013, I cracked open Dan Gutman's, The Genius Files: Mission Unstoppable. It's about a pair of twins, brother (Coke) and sister (Pepsi). I know, funny names, right? They are two really smart kids who are targeted by a dangerous group of adults who are trying to kill them. Their parents are oblivious to the danger they are in, and set out on a cross country road trip. Thinking they'll be safe once they leave their hometown, the kids have no idea that trouble will follow. I personally enjoyed following the kids' road trip on the map, as they dodged danger in real places from West to East across the U.S. Lots of adventure involved in this book and there is an ending that will make you want to read the next Genius Files book, because this is the first in a series. We have a ton of Gutman books in the library, so if you like his style of writing, you'll enjoy this too.
