really liked it

Me and a couple friends were roaming the book fair for the best book we could find. Besides from a couple of Justin Bieber books, we found N.E.R.D.S. When I first saw it I thought it was too good to be true! Because this cover was amazingly funny, and so was the book. Michael Buckley created a masterpiece. The plot idea was good and original that, surprisingly, kept you guessing. But what made this book funny was the characters. The characters in this book all have some problems that make them nerds. But when they become part of the spy agency, then their problems get upgraded and they are all given code names. My favorite one is a guy named Gluestick. He eats paste, and now he can stick to walls. I also like flinch. He eats so much sugar, that now he just needs one candy bar to run as fast as a cheetah. I honestly thought this was going to be another bust of a book like Origami Yoda. But Michael Buckley writes like Anthony Horowitz in spy scenes, and like Jeff Kinney when he makes a joke.
