Michael Buckley is at his comic best in this madcap new series sure to appeal to kids looking for a quick, exciting read.
 
Combining all the excitement of international espionage and all the awkwardness of elementary school, NERDS, featuring a group of unpopular students who run a spy network from inside their school, hits the mark. With the help of cutting-edge science, their nerdy qualities are enhanced and transformed into incredible abilities! They battle the Hyena, a former junior beauty pageant contestant turned assassin, and an array of James Bond–style villains, each with an evil plan more diabolical and more ridiculous than the last.

I teach in four ESL centered 4th grade classes. 75% or more of our students in each class who spoke no English at all upon entering the country or, if they were born here, spoke no English upon entering KG. They are working hard, but have a lot of catching up to do.
