entertaining submitted by emjane on August 9, 2013, 11:24am The somewhat strange and super-intelligent teen Cadel from Evil Genius continues to come to terms with his abilities and whether they should be used for good or evil.

Cadel finds himself working with another set of entertaining characters with unusual talents, and though it can be occasionally challenging to keep track of the many new faces, the reader still cares about their fates. Sections of the book, particularly in the middle third, are slow-paced, but the story picks up with the remarkably unpredictable climax. Genius Squad is set apart from other teen adventurer stories by the way it deals with the complications that can come with family-- be it made up of blood relations or just people who care.

Both boys and girls in middle school and lower high school grades will eat up this action-adventure story.
