Young students compete in a futuristic setting in this story that teaches useful lessons about teamwork, family, and forgiveness.  (Foreward Reviews)
Young readers who are interested in STEM will find themselves reflected in these characters. An open-ended resolution leaves room for a sequel. A strong secondary purchase for those looking to add fiction with a STEM focus to their middle grade collections. (School Library Journal)
The year is 2071.
Kia Krumpet is eleven years old.
She bites her nails (a lot) and flies an aero-scooter.
And she dreams of building her sixty-seven inventions at PIPS, the Piedmont Inventor’s Prep School.
The event is the Piedmont Challenge.
A challenge in which all 6th grade students solve a series of tasks.
The winners compete in state teams to earn a place at PIPS, a place where they can let their imaginations and creativity run free.
The rest are forced to study one school category for all of 7th and 8th grade. Just one.
(That’s two whole years!)
The place is Camp Piedmont.
The most innovative camp in the country.
But in a world full of floating playgrounds, switching bunk beds,
and robotic monkey assistants, there’s more at stake than creating an invention, studying one category, or winning a Golden Light Bulb…
and only one team with the courage to figure out what that is.
Meet The Crimson Five.
Because sometimes it takes a friend (or four) to help make your dreams come true.
