There are a group of unpopular, nerdy kids in every school and Nathan Hale Elementary has their own crew who has been tormented by popular athlete, Jackson Jones. That is until Jackson needs to get braces. Suddenly Jackson finds himself on the outside looking in, where even the nerds don't let him sit at their lunch table. One day Jackson discovers all is not as it seems at Nathan Hale Elementary. With the help of cutting-edge science and technology, the nerd herd at Nathan Hale fights evil and rescues others. This team of misfits is really a team of fifth-grade super spies and Jackson is the new recruit. Can Jackson overcome the fact that he is now a NERD?  (Pennsylvania Young Reader's Choice Award nominee, 2011)
