Ms. Yingling
E.L. Young is to be commended for integrating science and technology into great action/adventure books. The group from STORM is back, as technologically savvy and slightly geeky as ever, but the really cool thing about them is that even though they are young, they can go to Venice at a moment's notice to help an Italian girl whose family heirloom has been stolen... by a ghost. With the help of a semi-robotic rat, lots of money, and fearless spirit, they uncover a criminal mastermind and save the...more

The Storm Operatives are back in another action-packed adventure. This time Will, Andrew, and Gaia are up against something even more dangerous than that found in STORM: THE INFINITY CODE.

Two burglaries have hit the headlines. Why? Because the thing in the video is a strange spectral form that doesn't leave any prints behind and doesn't look human, earning it the name Il Fantastma or The Ghost.

A girl, named Cristina, witnesses The Ghost steal a p...more
STORM is a team of teenage technological geniuses who work to save the world in each book of their series. In this one, A ghost appears to be operating in Venice, stealing items of great value. At the request of another precocious teen living in Venice (the victim of one of the thefts). They travel to Venice, where they discover that a mentally deranged former team member has more sinister plans.

Recommends it for: Grades 3 through 6
I enjoyed the first book in the series, but this one left me cold. The characters are flat and some of the gadgets are unbelievable, despite the author's notes. However, many readers in grades 3-6 will probably enjoy it.
First book I read in the STORM series. Can't find ' The Infinty Code' in library, haha... Anyway, this book is action-packed, filled with suspense, definitely worth recommending. Will's gadgets are awesome!;)
I didn't read all of this book. It upset me because the bad guy was manipulating and hurting children. I liked the first one much better.
Good for a sequel. Kinda strange title. Not good enough for a second read and Beyond Awesome crowning, but good enough for a four star.

I actually read the book and loved the action and suspense. Fans of Alex Rider and the "H.I.V.E." series should like this book.
3.5 stars. Will, Andrew, and Gaia are teenage geniuses trying to keep the world safe.
