Middle-Grade Mojo - Kim Zachman

"Besides the mystery, readers will enjoy the fascinating information about Nikola Tesla. Readers will also enjoy getting to know Riley Green, a precocious, but insecure girl, who like a lot of middle school kids, feels like she doesn’t truly belong. . . . The fast-paced action and fun historical and science facts makes this a perfect book for reluctant readers." - Middle-Grade Mojo
