Most Helpful Customer Reviews
This is the second volume in the entertaining series for middle school readers that features Max, a 12-year-old girl genius who admires and emulates Albert Einstein. She and her fellow genius pals band together again to solve environmental problems in Ireland and India, all while being pursued by a bad guy who wants to bring Max over to his bad side. Although it is a bit out there in terms of logic and practicality, the story is fun and educational. I enjoy the references to Einstein and his work, the many quotes scattered throughout the story, and the bonus information on Gandhi. Strong series that I hope actual middle schoolers are reading.
