Summary
Ocean's 11 meets Spy School in this hilarious illustrated middle-grade series featuring the world's greatest minds. "Let the official record show that, I, Nikki Tesla, did not intend to destroy the world." There are only so many times a kid can invent an instrument of global destruction without getting grounded. So when Nikki's death ray accidentally blows up her bedroom (if you can call a pet ferret with an itchy trigger finger an accident), she's sent to the only place that can handle her. Genius Academy is a school for history's greatest brains. Leo da Vinci? Charlotte Darwin? Bert Einstein? All extraordinary. Yet even among her fellow prodigies, Nikki feels like an outsider thanks to a terrible secret she can't let anyone discover. Ever.But when her death ray is stolen, Nikki must stop worrying about fitting in and learn to play nice with her new classmates. Because it doesn't take a genius to track a thief around the world, outwit the authorities, and keep a French fry-fanatic ferret happy. It takes all of them.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Everything is going great with Nikki Tesla's latest invention a death ray, no less until her ferret, Pickles, gets her paws on it and blasts a hole in the floor. Hey, accidents happen! But for Nikki's mother, it's one accident too many, which is how the young inventor ends up at the Genius Academy an elite boarding school for brilliant kids. Ferret and inventions in tow, Nikki is immediately plunged into dangerous situations for example, teamwork and saving the world. Having extensive experience with being bullied, she has no intention of trusting the academy's other six students, all playfully named after some of history's greatest minds: Leo (da Vinci), Charlotte (Darwin), Mary (Shelley), Mo (Mozart), Al (Einstein), and Grace (O'Malley). However, when Nikki's death ray is stolen, she is forced to work with the academy kids to recover the ray. Keating's action-packed mystery kicks off her new Elements of Genius series, which combines intelligence with superhero appeal. Nikki's comical narration is printed on graph-paper pages and embellished by illustrations, all of which give STEM a fun new spin.--Julia Smith Copyright 2019 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Genius kid Nikola "Nikki" Tesla doesn't intend for her latest invention-a death ray-to vaporize her bedroom, but sometimes accidents happen, especially to Nikki. Even though she and her mother have moved several times, trying for a fresh start, their connection to Nikki's father, a brilliant, troubled weapons-inventor known to have perished in a lab explosion, always follows them. In addition to reporters, Nikki's latest incident attracts two mysterious agents, who invite her to enroll in a special boarding school: the Genius Academy. She was bullied badly at her last school, so she's reluctant to accept this new offer. But after an agent blackmails her by threatening to arrest her mom, Nikki reluctantly agrees. At the Academy, she discovers a group of six other geniuses: Charlotte Darwin, Leonardo da Vinci, Albert Einstein, Grace O'Malley, Adam Mozart, and Mary Shelley. Instead of classes, the students are tasked with saving the world, X-Men-style. The latest threat? Nikki's death ray has been stolen. This fast-paced caper features plot twists galore and a main character who confronts her past and learns that she can make friends along the way. A lively series kick-off. Ages 8-12.
