From the Back Cover
There are places in the world where heroes are born. There are places where brave men and women fight a never-ending battle against evil in order to keep our country and all other countries safe. There are places where the fate of our planet is being decided, even at this very moment, the consequences of which will echo through history.
None of these places is in North Dakota.
Carson Fender, seventh grader and notorious prankster, knows this. He's lived in North Dakota for his entire life, going to the same boring school every day, the same boring movie theater every week, the same boring state fair every year. Nothing ever changes, and nothing ever happens. That is, until today. Because today a desperate man is going to hand Carson a package with a dire set of instructions. And that package is going to lead him to discover that there's a secret government agency operating in his small, quiet North Dakota hometown.
And that this agency needs his help.

Although my son is an independent reader of this level, this was a book that I picked out to read to him as a bedtime story. This book's recommended age range is 8-12, according to Amazon.com. It was slow in the beginning, but once the pace picked up, we found ourselves really looking forward to reading it each night. I will say, though, in the last third of the book there was a part that I felt was much too intense for my kiddo, so instead of reading the details, I just told him what happened, and we moved along.
The protagonist, Carson, is in general a good-hearted kid... although his prank-pulling isn't anything you'd want your kid to emulate, you can tell he's clever and wants to do what's right. The end of the book made my son eager to start book 2.
My son really doesn't like fantasy--he says that the only magic is physics. If you have a similarly minded young person, this book might make them happier than Harry Potter.
