Mini Review: Nick and Tesla’s High-Voltage Danger Lab

Reposted from

Mini Review: Nick and Tesla’s summer vacation is off to a rocky start when their parents leave the country for work and they’re shipped off to eccentric Uncle Newt’s house. Events take an interesting turn when they uncover shady happenings at an abandoned mansion a few blocks away.

Kids in 4th-6th grade will love this action-packed, science-based adventure that follows 11-year-old twins as they solve a local mystery. With striking illustrations, ACTUAL science experiments your kids can perform (!), and plenty of suspense to keep the plot moving, don’t be surprised if your kids want to check out the whole series.



Texan, teacher, writer, reader: that’s me in a nutshell. Originally from Texas, I now live in London with my husband (he’s a Brit) and our two boys. I spend my time devouring books (especially young adult/middle grade fiction), baking cookies and generally going in ten directions at once. More than a decade ago, I moved to London for a teaching job, met my husband, stayed, and started a family. The last few years have been a whirlwind: in 2013, we moved to Austin, TX and I decided to stay at home with our son; in 2014, we bought and renovated a house in South Austin; in 2015, we welcomed our second son at a local birth center...and in 2016, we packed up and moved back to London! 2017 is set to see more changes as our eldest little starts school and I head back to the classroom. Read on for renovation info, book reviews, creative writing posts, and the general flotsam and jetsam of my life.
