Back cover copy

In eight days, Coke and Pepsi McDonald are going to turn thirteen.

Before then, they'll jump off a cliff, get trapped in the locked basement of their burning school, chased cross-country by murderous lunatics, left for dead in the pit of a sand dune, forced to decipher mysterious coded messages, thrown into a giant vat of SPAM, and visit the world's largest . . . ball of twine!

There's more, but if we told you here, we'd have to kill you.

Megapopular author Dan Gutman brings on the excitement with an action-packed new series that's nothing short of dynamite. Join Coke and Pep on their quest to uncover just what it means to be part of The Genius Files . . . if you dare!

Our customer reviews

Coke and Pepsi are genius twins who will turn thirteen in three days, but whether they make it there or not is another question. When the two uncover a secret government plot to use "YAGs," or Young American Geniuses, to solve the complex problems of the nation, their lives get turned upside down. The two discover that not only are they on the list, but that their teacher is involved, too! Now, the two must jump off cliffs, escape fires, travel across the country, escape dudes with bowler hats, and evade a teacher who's trying to kill them. The clues they need to save themselves and other geniuses lie in famous places like the Donner Party Memorial, a museum of PEZ memorabilia, and the world's largest ball of twine. Can the twins save the youth of the world? With a teacher and other psycho adults out to kill them, who can they trust? This fast-paced adventure will take you on a fact-filled trip across the country. The characters are well-developed, the plot is wonderfully done, and the facts don't overwhelm the book. Great for boys and reluctant readers, fans of fantasy, adventure, spy novels, action, and suspense will all enjoy reading MISSION UNSTOPPABLE. *Gold Star Award Winner!show more
