With the help of high tech gadgets, cool culinary chemistry, and some awesome teamwork, these girls may just save the world.
This book I did not try to get my son to read, though there is a Netflix series that the book is based on and he would probably love it since he is kind of obsessed with KC Undercover on Disney. It’s really a great book for MG and young teen girls. It shows girls being smart and showing that they’re smart, and having opinions and not being afraid to get dirty and do what needs to be done. I loved it and it is absolutely something I would have devoured as a preteen. The drama, the friendship, the adventure, and throw in a mystery and a cute prince, this gets a big thumbs up from me and is highly recommended.
I really enjoyed these STEM books and I will be on the lookout for more of the same, especially since my son enjoyed them so much. Thanks for letting me be a part of the tour!
