Overview

The NERDS series combines the excitement of international espionage with the awkwardness of elementary school as it follows the adventures of a group of unpopular fifth graders who run a spy network from inside their school. With the help of cutting-edge science, they transform their nerdy qualities into incredible abilities, and the results are awesome, inspiring—and hilarious.
This third installment in the series stars Matilda “Wheezer” Choi, the asthmatic who can fly and kick butt courtesy of her nanobyte-enhanced inhalers. Matilda loves pro wrestling and hates anything “girlie.” Unfortunately for Wheezer, when a former-NERD-turned-villain gets extensive plastic surgery in order to become a cheerleader, Matilda must swallow her pride to successfully infiltrate the squad. The villain with pom-poms, Gerdie Baker, has created a device that opens portals to other worlds, and if Matilda doesn’t find a way to destroy it, the fates of all the worlds will be at stake.

Praise for NERDS: The Cheerleaders of Doom
“Fans of the series will gladly recognize how the mayhem of the plot is well matched by a surfeit of quips and general goofiness of the highest order” –Booklist

“This series has gotten better with each book and I can't recommend it highly enough.” –Book Dads blog

The third book in the NERDS series focuses on Wheezer, Matilda Choi. I'm thoroughly enjoying that we get to find out more about each agent as the series progresses. Wheezer's personal family problems are probably relatable with a lot of kids these days. Mom and dad are constantly fighting and are on the verge of divorce. What I like about this particular resolution is that it was realistic. There isn't a happy ending where suddenly her parents get along again, instead, her parents sit down with Wheezer and explain to her what's going on. Wheezer was the unpredictable and slightly violent one of the group when the series first started. By the end of this book, she was the same but I felt that she was more stable and gained a lot more confidence about who she was.

This book in the series focuses on Matilda, who is forced to become a cheerleader in order to find the devise responsible for the rips in the dimensions before it causes the entire universe to self-destruct. As always, the book was fun, although this one seemed to have a very abrupt ending.
