We've just finished reading (aloud and on our own) Quark's Academy by Catherine Pelosi. Having two boys that love science I felt like this would be well received.
I read the first half of the book to them aloud and then let them continue one once the mystery was beginning to unravel.
The book follows Augustine, Celeste and Oscar who have all been picked for a very special place in the extremely exclusive, for geniuses only, summer camp. They have one week to make the invention they pitched, and be judged against others. Who will win and what does the very impressive academy hide?
Along the way there will be unexpected friendship, moments of courage, strange and wonderful adventures and camaraderie.
An really enjoyable, very readable book for independent readers in upper primary - or a fun read aloud!
