The town of Serenity is serene or is it? Eli has never left Serenity, why would he, everything in Serenity is perfect. All the adults have jobs, everyone has a place to live with a pool (that is important in New Mexico), there is no crime, and only thirty kids in the whole town. But the day Eli's best friend, Randy, talks him into biking just outside of the town limits to a barn where Randy and his dad had seen a alfa romeo, things change for both of them drastically. What are the adults of Serenity trying to hide, and how do the purple people eaters fit in?This is a well played, and strategically crafted adventure. Masterminds has many twists and turns that will keep you guessing but surprise you just the same. You will cheer for these very real characters while laughing at the same time. Be prepared to sit for awhile because you will not want to put this book down. A group of savvy 13-year-olds discover that their seemingly "perfect" hometown is a front for a shocking scientific experiment that unravels everything they know--even their own identities. Alternating first-person narratives and plenty of action--including break-ins, theft, vandalism and an explosive car chase--keep these pages turning, and a cliffhanger conclusion suggests that this is just the very promising beginning of a great new series.
This was wicked fun, and I think it's going to blow up with the 3rd-6th grade boys this summer.
Fun sci-fi adventure/mystery! I'll be curious to see where the series goes!
5 stars. Loved it. Such a unique plot. Cannot wait for book two.
It was very good book, it need to read the second one
