Series Review:

This is easily one of my most enjoyed series ever, and I highly, highly recommend it.  It is super fun and interesting to read, and the amount of detail and work in this series is incredible.  You can probably tell that this will be a 5 Star rating from me.  There were so many funny moments in this book, and I just wanted to keep rereading these books.


These books are about several 12 and 13 year old kids, who are exact DNA replicas of some of the worst criminals in history.  They are continuously on the run, because they discover that they are just part of an experiment, and they want to avoid the life of unknowingly being “lab rats.”  


There were a lot of moments in this book that were really intense and had a lot of suspense.  There were so many surprising things that happened in these books that I didn’t expect to happen, and all of this contributed to this being just an overall amazing series.  


It goes beyond saying that Gordon Korman writes these books extremely well, and I think that they appeal mostly to tweens and teens.  However, people of other ages can still read it.  My age rating for this series would be for people who are 10 and older.  In the end, this is just an extremely well written series that anyone can enjoy.
