Today I recommend: Jack and the Geniuses at the Bottom of the World by Bill Nye the Science Guy and Gregory Mone.
Traveling to Antarctica for a prestigious science competition, twelve-year-old Jack and his genius foster siblings, Ava and Matt, become caught up in a mystery involving a missing scientist. (This is the first book in a series.)
You read that right! Bill Nye the Science Guy was one of the author’s for this book so as you might expect there is lots of science information, and inventions all throughout this book. It never feels slow or overwhelming, and the end-notes add even more interesting explanations. This is a fast paced mystery, and Jack is a humorous narrator. I’m looking forward to the next book in this series. You can find Jack and the Geniuses at the Bottom of the World in the Juvenile Fiction section at J NYE.
