Life's full of adventure! Right? Sophia thinks so. Especially when you are telepathic and speak multiple animal languages!
Being brilliant ten-year-olds in a competitive eighth-grade honors class is a minute-by-minute challenge. Outside school even more challenges abound. When Jack the Polar Bear's regular zoo keeper is the victim of a mysterious hit-and-run accident, Super Sleuths Sophia and Pedro find themselves investigating his replacement. A replacement whom Jack and the seals fear and distrust.
Their investigation uncovers a plot by Russian poachers to abduct Jack. Never have the stakes been higher. Instead of battling middle-school snobs and bullies, they now find themselves in the crosshairs of the Russian mob.
