The Cheerleaders of Doom
Cheerleaders of Doom by Michael Buckley
OK, I admit it. I absolutely love this series. It makes me laugh out loud every time I read one of them. This series tells the story of 5 kids, all nerds for various reasons, who are super secret agents as well as middle school students. Their very weaknesses are what give them their powers. In this, the third book in the series, Matilda "Wheezer" Choi, who has asthma and super powered inhalers, is recruited to infiltrate a national cheer leading competition in order to track down a criminal mastermind who can travel to alternate dimension versions of earth in order to steal valuables from them. The team's arch enemy Heathcliff is back to help, but has ulterior motives as usual. The humor is decidedly tongue incheek, and it reads as if it's a twisted spy novel. I recommend this book for fans of humor and spy novels.
This review is based on a library copy.
Until next time, bon voyage and happy reading!
