Max, Jessica, and Scott are a team of energetic, sophisticated, technologically savvy super spies. Max has access to some of the most high-tech equipment in the world, Jessica is a martial arts expert, and Scott is a wire-tapping and hacking connoisseur. There is just one catch-they are in junior high school. Max and his friends find thrills in spying on their families, sneaking into each other's houses, and organizing elaborate pranks at school, which often land them in the principal's office. Max lives with his uncle, Rick Brinkley, who develops top-secret equipment for the government. When Max gets word that an important microchip has been stolen, the team gears up for the most exciting mission yet. (Ages 8+)
