Title: NERDS: The Cheerleaders of Doom (Book 3)
Author: Michael Buckley
Publisher: Amulet Books
Zahn’s Book Review #2
Matilda “Wheezer” Choi, the asthmatic who can fly and kick butt courtesy of her nanobyte-enhanced inhalers, loves pro wrestling and hates anything “girlie.” Maybe that’s because she grew up with six brothers—or maybe it’s because her home life has become a battle zone in the conflict between her parents. Unfortunately for Wheezer, when a former member of NERDS turned villain gets extensive plastic surgery in order to become a cheerleader, Matilda must swallow her pride to successfully infiltrate the squad. The newest supervillain, Gerdie Baker, assisted by the criminal mastermind Simon, has created a device that opens portals to other worlds, which she and the other cheerleaders have been pillaging. But the alternate realities are starting to get awfully close together, so it’s up to Wheezer and the NERDS to stop the cheerleaders before the worlds collide.
What I liked about this book is that it had action in it and a multiverse fantasy, of which I like. There were many creative dimensions and how they worked in this book.
What I disliked about this book is that it was confusing in the beginning, but that is very common in books. I did catch up with it though.
My summary: a former NERDS (a secret agency) is building a device that travels trough dimensions, and it is pulling the universes apart. Its up to the NERDS to stop it. But Mathlete has changed her look and gone to a cheerleading camp. Can tomboy Matilda find and stop her before our world falls apart? And Heathcliff plans on using Mathlete’s brain to take over the world! Can they make sure he doesn’t succeed?
I rate this book 3 out of 4 foxes
