Book Review - Izzy Newton and the S.M.A.R.T. Squad: Absolute Hero

About the Book
When middle school mishaps happen, five friends from the S.M.A.R.T. Squad and use their collective skills and the power of science to bring order to their school. 

 Science reigns supreme with this squad of young brainiacs. Join Izzy Newton and her friends in the first adventure of this fun new middle-grade fiction series from National Geographic Kids. A crowded new school and a crazy class schedule is enough to make Izzy feel dizzy. It may be the first day of middle school, but as long as her best friends Allie Einstein and Charlie Darwin are by her side, Izzy knows it'll all be okay. However, first-day jitters take an icy turn when Izzy's old pal Marie Curie comes back to town. Instead of a warm welcome, Marie gives her former pal the cold shoulder. The problems pile up when the school's air-conditioning goes on the fritz and the temperature suddenly drops to near freezing. The adults don't seem to have a clue how to thaw out the school. Cold temperatures and a frigid friendship? Izzy has had enough of feeling like an absolute zero. She rallies the girls to use their brainpower and science smarts to tackle the school's chilly mystery ... and hopefully to fix a certain frozen friendship along the way. Will the girls succeed and become the heroes of Atom Middle School?

From the acclaimed co-creator of the American Girl books series, this new series celebrates girl-power, STEM, friendship, diversity, and the power of being yourself. 

My Take on the Book
As a father to daughters, I love this book. It has amazing heroines within the book that are strong and has great messages of friendships and more. The book is entertaining and the plot is strong. The book has a great mix of science and friendships and the characters are diverse and add much to the story overall. Not only does the story entertain, but it also educates you along the way. Overall, this was a great book for all!
