Publisher's Summary

Coke and Pepsi McDonald didn’t want to jump off a cliff. They didn't want to get hit by poisoned darts from blowguns either. And they certainly don't want to get locked in their burning school, thrown into a pit at the top of a sand dune, or drowned in a vat of liquefied Spam. But what are you supposed to do when you’re being chased across the country by your insane health teacher and two guys in bowler hats who are trying to kill you? One thing's for sure, it'll be a snap for Coke and Pep to write their essays on "How I Spent My Summer Vacation."

Want to join in the fun? Fire up the old Google Maps and follow the McDonald twins as they get chased from the Pez museum to the largest ball of twine in the world. And watch out for the Frisbee grenades!

Massive Fail at Trying to Make an Educational Book

I got the feeling that this book was attempting to teach kids, but cover it up with storyline to make it fun. Personally, I think that education through books is great! The problem with this book is that that plot is dismal, and littered with a ridiculous amount of clichés. For Instance, The Antagonist, He is as stereotypical a villain as you can get. The book gives off a sense that in the mind of the author, education comes first, which isn't a bad principle, but actual quality writing is about number thirty on the list of priorities. On top of all this, the educational part is also horribly written and conveyed! I think that a truly could book doesn't try to sneakily make you learn, a good book makes you know you're learning, and lets you enjoy it! If you want you're child to learn, and have fun doing it, there are millions of other books out there that do a much better job doing it.

Mission Unstoppable

What did I like? Coke and Pep McDonald. What I didn’t like was them always been told they were going to be killed.

Failed attempt at discount spy kids

Smug annoying kids, Poorly written "action", And an author that hits pause to explain obvious tidbits and factoids at badly timed moments.

Bothering details

Some details are very bothering. The writer is annoying, the kids were asking each other if we can eat ourselves who will you eat first, there’s a character death in the story, and the brother called the sister retard. Not for kids! I turned it off halfway! This is enough!

Lighthearted and fun

I don't write reviews often but felt this book deserved defending from previous negative reviews.
This is a lighthearted fun book for kids, keeping that in mind, I thought the book was great.

Great fun for kids and not too shabby for parents

This has been fun for my 7yr old, and I've kind of enjoyed it to. It's s nice mix of fun and trivia, and a complete absence of sloppy Americana. Thanks we shall hop it stays like this for the rest of the series.

FUN TO READ BOOK!

This book is AMAZING! I could read it over and over again if I want to. It’s so exciting and fun to read. I would recommend this book to people who loves action and a bit of humor (maybe not that little). This book is one of my favorites!
