9781595140500: The Blackout Gang

Sweaty, sticky summer camp is no place for three geniuses, so when physics whiz Kev1n, super-hacker BB, and musical prodigy Monica get a call for help from their classmate Newt Lizzard, they jump at the chance to get away.

The three friends escape camp and take the train into Manhattan, ready for adventure. There’s only one problem—the city has been plunged into darkness. Blackout!

Armed with only their brilliant brains and trusty bicycles, the Blackout Gang roams the city, faces off against the infamous Elvii, and sneaks into a top-secret laboratory, all in an effort to uncover the evil mastermind behind the city’s power loss.

About the Author:

Josh McCall is a writer who currently lives in Brooklyn.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 5-8–Three 12-year-old friends are at summer camp, north of New York City. Unfortunately, Monica finds it impossible to practice her violin, and BB can't get a signal to work on his computer. Kevin is reasonably happy because his strength happens to be physical, and he can outrun or outplay anyone else in camp. Their plan to escape back to the city for one night becomes urgent when a scratchy message comes in on BB's cell phone from Newt Lizzard, a classmate whose father is a billionaire. He's in serious danger, and he needs help fast. Once the three friends get to the city, they not only have to find Newt, but they must also deal with a citywide blackout. The kids pool their talents to locate Newt and discover what diabolical mind is behind the disappearance of their parents, the blackout, and the attack on Newt. Readers will enjoy this fast-paced mystery with three likable protagonists. The specialized skills of the young people will attract kids who have a talent that makes them stand out, and Kevin's physical prowess adds a twist to the normal geeky detective squad. This is definitely a book for reluctant readers as there is always some excitement around the corner. The ending wraps up far too conveniently, but the ride there will satisfy most readers.–Lynn Evarts, Sauk Prairie High School, Prairie du Sac, WI
