Mission Unstoppable: The Genius Files Book #1 by Dan Gutman

missionWhen Coke was born, his parents had already chosen his name (which had nothing to do with the soft drink). Professor McDonald, Coke’s father, had written a book about coal and its influence on the Industrial Revolution. Coke, according to Webster’s Dictionary, is the “residue of coal left after destructive distillation.” Author Dan Gutman encourages the reader to check that fact out on The McDonalds thought that Coke would be a great name for a boy –short and strong sounding. However, when shortly after Coke’s birth, another baby, a girl, is born, the parents are stumped. What to name the twin sister? As a joke, one of the nurses suggests: “Pepsi!” Everyone laughs, but the name sticks, and Coke and Pepsi start their lives together. This is the first book in a new series by the popular author Dan Gutman detailing the exploits of these energetic twins. If you enjoy reading funny books that are full of adventure, then you’ll love this new book Mission Unstoppable. This is a quick read and a page turner. It will keep you at the edge of your seat! Enjoy it and look forward to more adventures with Coke and Pepsi. Review by Trudy Walsh
