Hilarious!! I'll read just about anything Dave Barry writes after the Peter (Peter Pan prequels) series. I think he does a fabulous job of stretching the believable. This book is about a boy named Toby who is desperate to win the school science fair (and the $5000 prize!) to pay off Star Wars enthusiasts who are blackmailing him, but gets caught up in an international terrorist attack from the Republic of Krpshtstan (population 4 million including goats) instead. Just enough tech info to make geeks happy, but also enough action and humor to keep everyone else happy.
