Selected by Indie Booksellers for the Spring 2011 Kids' Next List
“Prolific and popular author Gutman begins a new series filled with funny and crazy characters and an outlandish plot. Twelve-year-old twins Coke and Pepsi McDonald discover a secret government plot to use YAGs, or 'Young American Geniuses' to help solve the nation's problems - and they're both on the list!”
-- Michele Bellah, Copperfield's Books, Sebastopol, CA


Description

Coke and Pepsi McDonald didn’t want to jump off a cliff.

They didn’t want to get hit by poisoned darts from blowguns either. And they certainly don’t want to get locked in their burning school, thrown into a pit at the top of a sand dune, or drowned in a vat of liquified SPAM. But what are you supposed to do when you’re being chased across the country by your insane health teacher and two guys in bowler hats who are trying to kill you? One thing’s for sure, it’ll be a snap for Coke and Pep to write their essays on “How I Spent My Summer Vacation.”

Want to join in the fun? Fire up the old Google Maps and follow the McDonald twins as they get chased from the Pez museum to the largest ball of twine in the world.

Watch out for the Frisbee grenades!
