A worthy sequel, out of the box insights into the thoughts of bright middle school friendship, technology, and values. ****

I really liked this book it goes along very well with the first one if you are going to read them you are going to want to red them in order or else you are going to get very lost.

The chip that powered the homework machine wasn't destroyed, and now that same chip is being used for something a lot worse than helping kids cheat on their homework. Can Sam, Kelsey, Brenton, Judy and their sixth grade teacher, Mr. Murphy stop Milner? ( )

This is the sequel to one of my fourth-grade son's favorite books, The Homework Machine. In this book, Brenton, Kelsey, Sam, and Judy have moved on to sixth grade. Without their Homework Machine, they are concentrating on keeping up with the assignments given by Mr. Murphy, their new teacher. However, we haven't heard the last of the powerful chip that ran the Homework Machine. As Brenton, Kelsey, Sam, and Judy team up to search for treasure in the Grand Canyon, their old friend Richard Milner, school bully Ronnie Teotwawki, and the powerful computer chip play a role in the search.

This story is again told through multiple points of view, with several voices alternating in each chapter. This writing style might make the story feel choppy, but Gutman uses it to drive the pace of the story forward. My son and I enjoyed this one at least as much as The Homework Machine. ( )
