Kia and her team from New York, the Crimson Five, made it through Nationals. Now they are on their way to the Piedmont Global Championships in Quebec. There they will compete against other kids just like them, inventors and problem solvers from around the world.
But when they arrive, the team is presented with a new task that they must solve, and in only two weeks. When lack of inspiration and nasty rumors leave the team with doubts. Kia knows that they will have to do something to bring them all back together before it is too late or they will lose the competition.
This was a very entertaining story about a group pf five very creative and intelligent young people as they compete for the chance to have their invention created.
Kia is the main character of this story, but in reality it follows all five of her team members. These kids are very bright for their age, but they are still young children so they have doubts, and worries and fears.
I loved the ideas and the inventions the Crimson Five and the other teams came up with. I wish I had read book one beforehand in order to know more about their first invention, but despite that fact, I was still able to follow along.
The settings were very imaginative and intriguing. Their tree-houses were very creative, as well as the thinking pool. Though I wish I had been able to know how to get across those jungle gym bars.
All in all, I really enjoyed this book and would give it four out of five stars. I would recommend it to young readers with a love for invention.
