This is the sequel to the aptly titled: Enginerds. Shocking, I know. The kids in the first story defeated all but one robot, and in this book, most of them are unconcerned with the remaining bot, except Ken, who is mystified at their disinterest. I liked that the nerds are all about including Mikaela Harrington ( a girl!) and the side plot of Ken being a little jealous. I think that’s typical at this age as friend groups start morphing into smaller side groups.
It’s a great read-aloud for a family or group as the humor transcends all age groups and the action is pretty much non stop. The chapters are short, which is perfect for readers graduating from Magic Treehouse type books and definitely funny enough to keep kids reading until the end.
I hope Jarrett got a three-book deal as this one ends on a total cliffhanger!
Please note that I received a free advance E ARC of this book from NetGalley without a review requirement or any influence regarding review content should I choose to post a review. Apart from that, I have no connection at all to either the author or the publisher of this book.
