Up for giveaway is an ARC of book my son devoured in a day. (For reference, he's in the fourth grade.) This is second of the series, and he's already waiting anxiously for the third! Perfect for boys or girl, elementary and middle school. He loved it so much, I put it on the "to buy" list at our school library just yesterday.

NERDS: M IS FOR MAMA'S BOY by Michael Buckley (Abrams, Sept. 2010)

From Amazon:

NERDS combines all the excitement of international espionage with all the awkwardness of elementary school, and the results are hilarious. A group of unpopular fifth graders run a spy network from inside their school. With the help of cutting-edge science, they transform their nerdy qualities into incredible abilities! Their enemies? An array of James Bond–style villains, each with an evil plan more diabolical and more ridiculous than the last. Publishers Weekly raved: “Buckley has a flair for exaggerated humor.” School Library Journal said: “Funny, clever, and thoroughly entertaining.”
