I’ll never forget my science teacher’s words the day he recruited us as spies:<br /><br />"I’m a member of a secret organization called the Rosalind Group, whose original mission was to find and prevent cases of stolen scientific research. But one day, everything changed, and I didn’t understand why. Eventually, I figured it out…we weren't the good guys anymore…the Rosalind Group is no longer protecting scientists from having their research stolen. We’re now the ones who are stealing it."<br /><br />Apparently research wasn’t all they were stealing; they were stealing the scientists themselves! I suppose “kidnapping” is the proper word. <br />And that’s where we came in. Six science-savvy seventh graders. One missing scientist. And the need for some serious out-smarting.<br />But there’s just one more mystery involved: how was I supposed to do this without lying to everyone I know? I was sworn to secrecy…but I ended up breaking my promise.<br /><br />“Case of the Disappearing Glass” is the first book in the Super-Secret Science Club series. Follow Jenna and her classmates as they unravel mysteries and tackle critical missions, all while trying to survive middle school!
