N.E.R.D.S. Rule!! And the "Dress Like a Nerd" Contest

Have you ever wanted to join the N.E.R.D.S.? Or dress like the N.E.R.D.S.? Well, you might because N.E.R.D.S. stands for National Espiaonage, Rescue, and Defense Society, a top-top secret agent service the government calls on "when the best of the best can't get it done." It's also the name of a TERRIFIC new book by Michael Buckley.

Jackson Jones was the star quarterback and most popular guy in Nathan Hale school who delighted in tormenting the nerdy kids. He noticed the nerdy kids kept getting up and getting out of class. He decided to follow them one day, but the principal was in the halwway. Jackson jumped into a locker to hide, the bottom dropped away, and he slid down into...Do you really want to know? Oh, OK, he slid into the secret headquarters of N.E.R.D.S.! That means he had to join them and fight evil acroos the globe. But does he have what it takes to be one of the N.E.R.D.S.? You will LOVE this book! It's got lots of action, goofball humor, and a SLAM-BANG ending. And it's FUNNY, FUNNY, FUNNY!!

In honor of this new book, we're holding a "Dress Like a Nerd" contest. Come to either the Imaginon or Matthews library and let us take a picture of you in a nerdy outfit. Or bring us a picture. We'l post them on the blog. Every guy who does will get a free book. The winner will get a Camp Half-Blood t-shirt and a copy of Out From Boneville by Jeff Smith. Pretty good, huh? The contest will go until 6:00 Pm this Saturday. That's Halloween Day! We'll announce the winner on Monday, November 2. Got any questions? Call Zack at Matthews at 704-416-5022 or Carl or Bill at Imaginon at 704-416-4630.
