Drone Academy: SWARM

The fate of the world as we know it depends on a group of teenagers who have never met... not face to face, anyway. Scared? Don't be. They're all members of Drone Academy, a team of anonymous, virtual-reality wearing teens who communicate exclusively in cyberspace and interact only through their high-tech UAVs. The team must tackle everything from dogfighting enemy drones to working with emergency responders to searching for criminals on the run. No matter what the mission, this one-of-a-kind group has everything under (remote) control. The only thing that's not so simple? Managing their own relationships.

Booklist Online - Lindsey Tomsu

"This STEM-positive adventure is broken into four stories, each featuring one member of the club. . . .While some suspension of disbelief is required (where do the teens get the money to pay for these high-tech drones?), the action is swift, the characters diverse and fleshed out, and the short-story structure will appeal to tech-savvy reluctant readers." - Booklist Online

Kirkus Reviews

"The high-tech, fast-paced action builds to ever greater threats with each story. Aside from Parker, the kids are generally law-abiding, and instead of vigilantism they turn things over to authorities; all model supportive friendships. . . .Sai's storyline, which includes bullying and victims of bullying, carries the biggest emotional punch and ends the book on an ambiguous note, reflecting Sai's complexity. A welcome geeky addition, especially for reluctant readers." - Kirkus Reviews
