Steel Trapp: The Academy by Ridley Pearson - ESSENTIAL

Pearson, Ridley Steel Trapp: The Academy, 408 p. Disney/Hyperion, 2010. $16 

Content: PG (mild kissing, some physical violence). 


Steven “Steel” Trapp and Kaleigh , fresh from their adventures at the National Science Competition, find themselves at an very exclusive private school – more exclusive than they even know. Steel’s perfect memory will be challenged, but so will his social skills, as he tries to maneuver the pitfalls of his new school, Kaleigh’s increasing attention to things besides detective work, and the dangers of their investigations into mysterious happenings around the school.

Welcome to America’s version of Muchamore’s Cherub books. While not quite as intense, Steel and Kaleigh are still very engaging and they are constantly on the run from one perilous situation to another. Enjoy!
