The Whole Family Loved This Book! I read this with my boys and loved it for a million reasons, but I thought I'd let the real fans speak for themselves... The 11 year old: "I liked it because the characters felt like real people--good books are usually like that. It was very interesting how every thing was connected--the super heroes, the people and the aliens." The 9 year old: "I really like the illustrations because I want to be a cartoonist and the story was great because it was so funny." The 7 year old: "I like that the author put in so much detail. My favorite character was Bobby because he was funny and cool to kids." The 42 year old: "I loved Polly and I want to tell you why, but I don't want to give any spoilers. Let's just say she was fabulous in a variety of ways. But I also loved Vincent and his friends and of course, Bobby who's an adult who listens and respects kids. YAY! This was a fabulous and fun read with deceptive depth--so much to be found within the pages. I had a bast reading it with my boys and can't wait for Jung's next book."

My son is not a reader, so when I handed him a copy of GEEKS, GIRLS and SECRET IDENTITIES, my hopes weren't very high despite the awesome cover. To my shock and awe, he read it every night and brought it to school for his individual reading. When he finished it the other night, he told me that it was the best book he'd read in forever and that he really wanted to BE the main character. This morning, he told me how sad he was that the book was over, and that he might have to start it again. High praise from a reluctant reader, and a book that has really stuck with him! Mr. Jung definitely has a hit on his hands.
