Description

Twelve-year-old Johnny Fremont is the world's only hope when the Council of Fifty, a secret society of the most evil people on the planet, decides to wipe out the entire Southern Hemisphere with a doomsday machine. Johnny may be only twelve-years-old, but he's been training his entire life for a fabulous Indiana Jones-like adventure. He trains with one motto: if anybody in the world is capable of doing something, then he should be able to do it. If David Blaine can hold his breath for eight minutes, then Johnny should be able to do it for nine. If a fitness guru can swim the English Channel, handcuffed, shackled, and pulling a boat, then Johnny should be able to do it with one hand tied behind his back as well. With this philosophy, Johnny has become the world's smartest and toughest kid. However, he has to pretend to be average at school (he makes sure his grades are all C's, not C pluses or C minuses) so that he won't stick out. Johnny's chance for adventure finally comes when he must track down Albert Einstein's diary, which contains all the extreme secrets of the universe. Einstein hid the diary in his house before he died. For the next sixty years, every government in the world has ransacked and probed the house, searching desperately for the diary, but they came up completely empty. However, when Johnny teams up with Azelia, his arch-nemesis, they find it in one hour. Following the clues that Einstein laid out in his the diary, Johnny and Azelia, arguing every single second, embark on an incredible adventure to save the world from a doomsday machine that destroys the planet every 25,000 years.
