Gr 3-7–Debut author Jagger has written a witty and fast-paced adventure full of mystery and intrigue that will delight and engage young readers. Best friends Gina, Edgar, Elena, and Kevin have been not-so-affectionately dubbed the GEEKs, based on their initials. Rather than be offended, they decide to embrace their new name and run with it. Their hometown of Elmwood used to be famous as the hometown and headquarters of renowned toymaker Maxine Van Houten. Her popular toy, the Bamboozler, kept more than half the town employed, with residents making the puzzle sphere in the local factory. However, the factory is going to be shut down and the GEEKs may be separated forever if their parents have to move away for new employment. Luckily, they discover that Maxine left one final puzzle behind—a treasure hunt that will lead to a something that will save their struggling factory and town. Only those who truly love Elmwood and its unique history will be able to solve and find the clues. The audiobook is humorously narrated by talented voice actress Danice Cabanela, who excellently portrays all four kids.
VERDICT This first title in a new series is a perfect listen for readers who love puzzles and adventure.
