Guest Review: NERDS: The Cheerleaders of Doom

Reviewed by Keaton

Title:  N.E.R.D.S.:The Cheerleaders of Doom (Book 3)
Author:  Michael Buckley

     From Barnes and NobleThe NERDS series combines the excitement of international espionage with the awkwardness of elementary school as it follows the adventures of a group of unpopular fifth graders who run a spy network from inside their school. With the help of cutting-edge science, they transform their nerdy qualities into incredible abilities, and the results are awesome, inspiring—and hilarious.
This third installment in the series stars Matilda “Wheezer” Choi, the asthmatic who can fly and kick butt courtesy of her nanobyte-enhanced inhalers. Matilda loves pro wrestling and hatesanything “girlie.” Unfortunately for Wheezer, when a former-NERD-turned-villain gets extensive plastic surgery in order to become a cheerleader, Matilda must swallow her pride to successfully infiltrate the squad. The villain with pom-poms, Gerdie Baker, has created a device that opens portals to other worlds, and if Matilda doesn’t find a way to destroy it, the fates of all the worlds will be at stake.

     Book 3 of the N.E.R.D.S series is an action-packed, edge-of-your-seat novel that will leave you hungry for the next few books in the series. The book features agent “Wheezer” Matilda Choi in some pretty tough situations that she will have to lead her team out of. Choppers, or as you may get to know him, Screwball, vows revenge on his former team. He begins his plan slowly in a hospital for the criminally insane where madness outside is already taking place. Outside Gerdie Baker, an ugly cheerleader-wanna-be, begins to construct a device capable of opening portals to different universes. Little does she know about the actual power of her device, it begins to have tears in her world. Things that once were are no more. The Washington Monument (ZAP) gone. The Great Pyramids (ZAP) gone. Gerdie continues to use her bridge device to steal riches from the different universes and soon there won’t be anymore of her world to go around. So, who do you call for an interuniversal crisis? None other than N.E.R.D.S! This is the book for a person who loves action, mystery, and if your just a plain nerd!
