New York Times best-selling author of the Sisters Grimm stories, Michael Buckley created a hilarious new storyline with the first book in his NERDS series. In this side-splitting follow-up, Goonies meets James Bond-style hijinks continue with a group of unpopular fifth-graders who run a spy network right under their teachers’ noses. Their tech-loving, geeky ways may get them shunned by the “it” crowd, but with a little help from science, these kids’ most dweeby qualities become big-time weapons in the fight against super-villains.

    " I liked this book because it was funny and focused on a character I didn't know much about(Duncan Dewey) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nick 21 | 2/15/2014

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ragan | 2/11/2014

    " Not as funny as the first. But still good. I am interested to find out what this author witll come up with next in this series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Will | 2/11/2014

    " I really like this book! It's been a long time since I've read NERDS, and these books don't really start out from where they left off. I consider each book a whole new book. The characters I know so far are Duncan and Flinch. Flinch has a problem whenever he eats sugar, which makes him hyper. Flinch also has superhuman abilities. Duncan's nickname is glue stick because he can stick to any surface. I would recommend this book to readers who like humor. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Angela | 2/5/2014

    " I actually liked this second in the series better than the first! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lorelie | 1/21/2014

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mohammad S. | 1/19/2014

    " It was the most funny book I've read! But four stars because it wasn't filled with lots of action, which I didn't expect. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Stefani | 1/6/2014

    " Lots of laughs. The first was funnier, but I enjoyed revisiting the characters from a different NERD. I do hope more come out from POVs of even more of the young spies. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kellylynn | 12/24/2013

    " Still not a fan of the series, but I have to say I liked this one the most. I liked how it delved into the family life of one of the NERDS members and how they could work through 'life' issues. And I still like that this is a decent series to read and discuss with my 9 year old boy. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lydia | 12/17/2013

    " A book that truly shows the meaning of bravery and the man-up speech. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cody Hollingshead | 12/13/2013

    " 3 words: I Love It "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Brianna | 6/12/2013

    " Another one? How many of these ARE there? Ugh. I guess it was relatively okay, but Michael Buckley is NOT my favorite author. There was a lot of crying... "He cried" or "She cried". Sloppy, sloppy, sloppy. I DO NOT recommend. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amanda | 5/22/2013

    " This is a funny book about 5 Nerd spys. I think the dialog between chapters is fun and different. It kind of reminds me of A Series of Unfortunate Events but better. I recommend this to anyone looking for a fun light read with a moral point. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tristan | 5/4/2013

    " Used this for a mini book report. Learned some new words after looking them up in a dictionary. My Mom had to explain why the subtitle is "M is for Mama's Boy" I am only 9 so still not sure I get it. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Darin | 2/8/2013

    " This was one of the best books I have ever read!!! I am so excited to read the 3rd book called "The Cheerlearers of Doom." If there was more than 5 stars I would rate it even higher!! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Austin | 5/6/2011

    " I think it is an aswome book to read it has a lot of action and adventure. It is a good book to read it keeps you reading and there is no stop to the surprizes to it. I'd like to give you some info of the book but you wouldn't understand it until you read it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Shawn | 4/4/2011

    " LOL, this book was so funny and AMUSING though I preferred the transmissions from the first book but I loved the code breaking stuff and I wish the Hyena was in it more. I didn't expect who the bad guy was and what his mom did, you better read it to find out! "
