Mona likes to moan. Kiki is a worry-wart. Bart loves following rules. And Zane HATES following rules. When the four of them are put into The Secret Science Society together, this could only mean one thing: DISASTER! Will they be able to work together to create an experiment that Mona won’t moan about, Kiki knows is safe, Bart will think is perfect and that is really, REALLY exciting for Zane? But ssssssshhhhhhh, the ending is a secret.


This is the story of four very different children, all put together to work on the same science project. Each of them have their own unique ways, and do not really get along that well!

Zane is always looking for excitement and has trouble concentrating, Kiki is anxious about everything, Bart likes things to be done exactly as they should be, and Mona never seems to be happy about anything!

Can this group of four individuals manage to work as a team to pull it all together for the upcoming science expo?

This is a great story about strengths and weaknesses, diversity and acceptance, and learning to work together. Not to mention that it highlights how much fun can be had with science experiments!

All primary readers aged 8+ are sure to enjoy this book.
