When 11-year old, ultra-smart Julian Calendar moves to a new school, he hopes to obliterate his unpopular geek status. While pretending to struggle in school and pose as a jock, he meets “dangerous brainiac” Greta, and supposedly “dumb jock” Ben. They show him their secret underground Invention Laboratory and invite him to join their “Secret Science Alliance.” Together they create complex contraptions and pranks for stopping crimes. Unfortunately, their secret invention book gets stolen and sneaky, evil Dr. Stinger receives kudos for creating the “Stinkometer” - their Stinkometer. Will the young inventors defeat this evil mastermind?  This full length graphic novel is loaded with colorful cartoon panels containing clever inventions, cool science facts and high-tech adventure.  (Pennsylvania Young Reader's Choice Awards, 2011-2012)
