Nate Bannister, who is a genius and rich, and his only friend, Delphine, are both in sixth grade. Nate doesn't have many friends while Delphine is funny and popular. Every Friday the 13th, Nate gives himself permission to do three not-so-smart things. This year, he taught a caterpillar math, mailed a love letter, and super-sized his cat Proton before turning him invisible. How will Nate and Delphine fix this mess? Find out how they use all of their science skills and intelligence to try and make things right again!
This is the first book in The Genius Factor series. This book is filled with witty humor and unexpected twists. Delphine is a character that readers will want to have as their own friend. I'm looking forward to reading more books in this series!
