Michael Buckley is a New York Times best-selling author, having scored fans far and wide for his Sisters Grimm series and popular TV shows.
There’s no doubt about it: These kids are nerds. Awkward, unpopular, uncool as uncool can be—and yet, there’s something about these “nerds” that nobody else knows. These dweebs are actually superspies who use their dorky skills to battle the evil Hyena and other villainous baddies.

Estate planning lawyer and mom to two boys. My older son liked audiobooks as an infant, and I've listened to a lot since then.
My 11 year old son loved this book -- found it funny and engrossing. I think he listened to it in just a couple of sittings, and was begging for the sequel.
Johnny Heller is a fabulous narrator of kids' books. I've enjoyed listening to him on many titles.
I'm always looking for books that I will enjoy as much as my sons, and this was the only respect in which this one fell short. I enjoyed it enough (certainly not irritating in any way), but found my attention wandering. If you are only buying this for a teen or tween to listen to, then I would have no reservations.
