Coke and Pepsi McDonald didn't want to jump offa cliff. They didn't want to get hit by poisoned darts from blowguns either.And they certainly don't want to get locked in their burning school, throwninto a pit at the top of a sand dune, or drowned in a vat of liquefied SPAM.But what are you supposed to do when you're being chased across the country byyour insane health teacher and two guys in bowler hats who are trying to killyou? One thing's for sure, it'll be a snap for Coke and Pep to write theiressays on "How I Spent My Summer Vacation."
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Thrill seekers and Gutman fans alike will welcome the opening installment of the Genius Files series, which follows twin 12-year-olds Coke and Pepsi McDonald on their cross-county vacation. The precocious brother and sister uncover a secret government plot to use YAGs, or Young American Geniuses, to solve the complex problems of the nation, and find that they are on the list. Suddenly, their 3,000-mile road trip becomes a lot more exciting. The McDonalds' trek across the U.S. includes stops at the Donner Party Memorial, a museum of PEZ memorabilia, and the world's largest ball of twine, all while being pursued by dangerous dudes with bowler hats. Although the interjection of factual information from their college-professor father is a bit forced at times, Gutman's novel offers a quirky look at Americana that will engage curious minds. Frequent sidebars direct readers to Google Maps to track the twins' journey, and occasional photos of the attractions add appeal. Those looking for a fun and suspenseful read similar to those from Pseudonymous Bosch will not be disappointed.--Anderson, Erin Copyright 2010 Booklist"
