Now more than ever, Spencer, Daisy, and even Dez must fight to save schools everywhere. Toxites, the small creatures that love to feed on the brain waves of students, are just the beginning of their troubles.
The Bureau of Educational Maintenance (BEM) is after Spencer, and the Rebels hope to sneak him to safety within the walls of an elite private school. But danger follows Spencer and his friends testing their loyalty and trust as well as their Toxite-fighting skills. Can they hold out long enough to discover the true secret of New Forest Academy and what it means to the future of education?
I will admit, I didn’t much care for the first book in the Janitors series, finding it a bit preachy about education and a tad boring in the plot. But, having read this second book much improved my temperament toward the series (for an adult, kids will love it) as new twists were thrown in and we are introduced to new plots, bad guys, and powerful janitor equipment. This is much the same base plot as the first book with a few twists, one in particular at the end that had me wanting to read the next book as soon as I could get it at my library. Spencer has fully taken on the duties of a janitor, and has a mystery to solve once he and Daisy are sent to what the rebels assume is a safe school. What is the secret of New Forest Academy? Read to find out.
I give it a 3.25 out of 5
