Thanks to Peachtree for the chance to review this books.

Description: Meet Misfits, Inc. Investigations Peter, the genius Jake, the athlete Byte, the computer whiz Mattie, the “magician” THESE FOUR TEENAGE SUPER-SLEUTHS have a knack for uncovering and solving unsolvable crimes. In their first case, the team bands together to clear Mattie’s grandfather, who stands falsely accused of stealing a million-dollar computer chip from a local museum. While the FBI and local police assigned to the case can’t turn up any leads, the Misfits draw upon each of their special talents to lead them to the true thieves and solve the mystery of The Vanishing Chip.

I think this is a great book for a middle grade reader.  The characters are all likeable and show that even though you might not fit in with the rest of the people around you that is not necessarily a bad thing.  The one thing that cracked me up is that this was written back in 1998 so it was surreal to hear about having to plug in a phone cord to your laptop to connect to the internet.    This is the first in a series and it looks like it will be a lot of fun for children to read.
