What to expect
Coke and Pepsi McDonald didn't want to jump off a cliff. They didn't want to get hit by poisoned darts from blowguns either. And they certainly don't want to get locked in their burning school, thrown into a pit at the top of a sand dune, or drowned in a vat of liquefied Spam. But what are you supposed to do when you're being chased across the country by your insane health teacher and two guys in bowler hats who are trying to kill you? One thing's for sure, it'll be a snap for Coke and Pep to write their essays on "How I Spent My Summer Vacation."
Want to join in the fun? Fire up the old Google Maps and follow the McDonald twins as they get chased from the Pez museum to the largest ball of twine in the world. And watch out for the Frisbee grenades!

Listen to a sample
“Dan Gutman is a funny man and a prolific writer, and the Genius Files, his latest excursion into early teen adventure and absurdity, will likely find an immediate audience…A page turner.”
“There is no shortage of humor or action…Gutman continues to do what he does best: entertain readers.”
“A quirky look at Americana that will engage curious minds…Those looking for a fun and suspenseful read similar to those from Pseudonymous Bosch will not be disappointed.”
“Encouraging readers to follow along, Gutman tucks Google Map directions and small photographs into the margins while salting his tale with coded messages and rousingly icky brangles…along with his usual generous measures of quick action and snarky repartee.”
