Twelve year old twins Coke and Pepsi (not named after the soft drinks!) are not very excited about spending the summer in an RV criss-crossing the country to visit outstanding attractions like the SPAM Museum and the Burlingame Museum of Pez Memorabilia. Things start looking up, though, when they discover that they have been selected to be part of the Young American Geniuses group, super-smart kids who together, may solve the world’s problems. This honor, however, makes them the targets for a mysterious assassin that seems to be following them wherever they go. Their parents don’t seem to notice a thing, which allows the twins to battle evil without missing a beat of their summer vacation! If you like silly plots, snarky dialogue and madcap adventure, with a tour of interesting and bizarre Americana, this is the book for you.  (Dodie Owens for Colorado Blue Spruce Award, 2013)
