The book ends with the title of the sequel, which won’t be published soon enough. I am now two thirds the way through Catherine Jinks’ “Genius” trilogy and am really enjoying it.

Genius Squad

Despite Jimks initial suspicions they may be working for Prosper, Cadel and Sonja eventually agree to join Genius Squad. He’s still insanely smart, and surrounded by adults who either don’t believe him or won’t trust him.

The book lags in almost everything! While Genius Squad works away, trying to avoid notice by Cadel’s various bodyguards, they uncover a web of deceit, crimes and cerebral implants.
