Book Description

1 Aug 2012
A virus has infected Arlington, Virginia, home of NERDS headquarters, and it's much worse than your run of the mill flu. Instead of coughing and sneezing, the victims of this voracious virus are transformed into super-intelligent criminal masterminds! Soon nearly everyone, including some of the NERDS team, is plotting to take over the world! And who's to blame for this nasty infection? None other than the NERDS' former teammate, Heathcliff Hodges. With more people breaking out into evil cackles every day, it is up to Flinch, the hyper-active super-spy with a sweet tooth, to stop the virus. To do so, he needs to destroy the virus at its source, and to do that he's going to have to get inside Heathcliff's head, literally. Flinch will have to miniaturise himself and take a fantastic voyage through the supervillian's body to fight white blood cells, stomach acids, and a nest of nasty nanobytes in hopes that he can save the world from the Villain Virus.

5.0 out of 5 stars How Do You Save the World from a Virus? 20 Sep 2012
By Mark Baker TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Hardcover
Each book in this series has focused on a different member of the NERDS team, and this time around the focus is on Flinch. His special harness converts his junk food fueled hyperactivity into super speed and strength, but his jitters don't allow his brain to think and plan, so he is surprised when he starts being put in charge of missions.

And there are a lot of them because it seems like every day some new super villain is cropping up with a new plan to take over the world. But when a member of NERDS does the same thing, they begin to realize that there is a virus on the loose.

Meanwhile, the team has started a new school year at Thomas Knowlton Middle School, and their new principal, Ms. Dove, is watching them like a hawk. Can they still get away to save the day without getting into trouble? And will the entire world succumb to the villain virus before a cure is found?

As with the other books in the series, this one features lots of action and some good suspense wrapped in some great laughs. I was always easily pulled into the book and the pages flew by. The action was almost non-stop, and a couple of the scenes actually did have me laughing out loud. I did find a plot hole (error? glitch?) in the climax, but it is a minor issue.

While all the members of NERDS are in every book, the central character is the one who gets the most development, and watching Flinch grow was really rewarding. He'd been the hardest of the kids to figure out before, so I enjoyed getting to know him better here.

Fans of the series will certainly enjoy catching the latest adventures of the team. I would recommend starting the series at the beginning since certainly earlier books are spoiled by what happens here.

5.0 out of 5 stars Funny but educational ..... 17 Oct 2012
By CDD - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Flinch was great in book 4 and a valuable lesson was learned about perseverance and self confidence. We read the series as a family at night and we are eagerly awaiting book 5. Can't wait to see what becomes of both Heathcliff and Ms. Holiday.

5.0 out of 5 stars Finally, a great series for my picky reader! 22 Aug 2013
By Kelly - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
My son is a very picky reader. He likes funny books, but has to "relate" to the characters. I have bought so many books over the past few years that have gone unread. I purchased the "NERD" series for him, and he can't put them down! I am THRILLED that he has finally found a book series that he loves and enjoys reading!

5.0 out of 5 stars Son read it in a hurry 21 Aug 2013
By Shepard - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
My son grabbed the first Nerds book off of the shelf one night because we made him read. Once he started, it didn't last long and neither did the following four! He's bummed out that he has to wait another month for the fifth one. He is 9 and in 4th grade and each book lasted him about a week.
