N.E.R.D.S. by Michael Buckley
I'm grateful for this book for a few reasons. It's funny. It has a great message that you can be yourself and be cool and do great things. You shouldn't give up. And more. Plus it's filled with those great spy gadgets! Love it. I also love that it's the first in a 5 book series, so if you enjoy this one there is plenty more to move on to.
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.
