Perfectly fluffy and fun - a mystery/adventure about teenage cool hunters in Manhattan. The narrator sounded a little too mature for the character, but I appreciate that he wasn't overdoing it to sound younger. ( )

Like the fiction version of "Brandwashed". I wonder if the kids that read this realize that a lot of the story is true? I'd give it four stars except the occasional swear word bugged me and was unnecessarily distracting. ( )

Here's what I learned from listening to this book: I don't like Scott Brick's reading style.

That is all. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 159514000X, Hardcover)

Ever wonder who was the first kid to keep a wallet on a big chunky chain, or wear way-too-big pants on purpose? What about the mythical first guy who wore his baseball cap backwards? These are the Innovators, the people on the very cusp of cool. Seventeen-year-old Hunter Braque's job is finding them for the retail market. But when a big-money client disappears, Hunter must use all his cool-hunting talents to find her. Along the way he's drawn into a web of brand-name intrigue- a missing cargo of the coolest shoes he's ever seen, ads for products that don't exist, and a shadowy group dedicated to the downfall of consumerism as we know it.
