A group of unpopular fifth graders run a spy network from inside their school. With the help of cutting-edge science, they transform their nerdy qualities into incredible abilities! In the seriesâ€™ second installment, Duncan Dewey (code name: Gluestick) leads the team against a supervillain who used to be a member of NERDS. But has the team become too dependent on their supergadgets? It will take old-fashioned brainpower and bravery to save the world again. Publishers Weekly raved, â€œBuckley has a flair for exaggerated humor.â€
The twisted team that gave the world Squids Will Be Squids and The Stinky Cheese Man now delivers a whole lot of Baloney. Henry P. Baloney.

Otherwise, his teacher Miss Bugscuffle promises, it's Permanent Lifelong Detention.
