Description

The most exciting road trip in history continues! In this second book in the thrilling, New York Times bestselling adventure series, twelve-year-old twins Coke and Pepsi McDonald see the Midwest like you've never seen it before.

They never asked to be geniuses. They never asked to get lowered into a basket of boiling French fries, either. And they certainly never asked to be frozen in soft-serve ice cream, stampeded in a wild stadium riot, or kidnapped on a high-speed roller coaster. But that's what happens when a red-haired villain named Archie Clone is chasing you across America. This just might be the most dangerous road trip in history—and the most awesome!

With Dan Gutman's laugh-out-loud humor and featuring photos and weird-but-true American tourist destinations like the National Mustard Museum, The Genius Files is a one-of-a-kind mix of geography and fun.

Don't miss the next action-packed book, The Genius Files #3: You Only Die Twice!

        February 1, 2012

        Gr 4-6-This sequel to Mission Unstoppable (HarperCollins, 2011) picks up right in the middle of the McDonald family road trip, but knowledge of that book is not essential as the narrator breathlessly recounts its highlights. It isn't long before the 13-year-old twins Coke and Pepsi find themselves in hot, er, oil. Yes. Even though they thought they dispatched the evil Dr. Warsaw in the last go-round, it seems that a new evil mastermind is pursuing them-Archie Clone, a kid genius with a penchant for hats and a resemblance to Archie of comic-book fame. As the family zigzags across the eastern half of the country en route to Washington, DC, they stop at a variety of oddball roadside attractions, where, if the twins don't find themselves in immediate peril, they find mysterious ciphers that need decoding. The various stops are real places, such as the Mustard Museum in Wisconsin and Hershey Park in Pennsylvania. Text boxes give instructions for finding the McDonalds' route in Google Maps, and black-and-white photographs and illustrations of the codes are included. Kids will appreciate the book for its nonstop action and goofball humor; character development is weak. Coke and Pepsi have the most clueless parents ever and the villains are strictly laughable. Buy for reluctant readers wanting something fast, or for fans of "The 39 Clues" (Scholastic).-Brenda Kahn, Tenakill Middle School, Closter, NJ
