Charlie Thorne and the Last Equation by Stuart Gibbs - ESSENTIAL


Language: G (1 swears, 0 “f”); Mature Content: G; Violence: PG (fighting and shooting)

BUYING ADVISORY: MS - ESSENTIAL

AUDIENCE APPEAL: HIGH

When the CIA discovers that Einstein left behind a world-shattering equation, Pandora, Dante Garcia is called in to find before any of America’s enemies can.  In order to tilt the odds in his favor, he kidnaps his 12-year-old half-sister, Charlie, a kid genius and the only chance the whole world has to find the formula before the bad guys do.  But who is bad and who is good when the whole world hangs in the balance?

Ta-Dah!  Welcome to Charlie Thorne’s world!  At least I hope there is another novel or 4 coming.  The possibility exists.  With all of the danger and guns and fighting, this one is for a bit older audience then Gibbs normal writing.  Fans of Robert Muchamore’s CHERUB series, or Anthony Horowitz’s Alex Rider character and other high octane series will rejoice in this!
