The book N.E.R.D.S by Michael Buckley depicts Jackson Jones as the main character who rules his Nathan Hale Elementary School. Jackson is well-liked and popular, but when a dentist discovers that he has 66 teeth, he gives him braces and immediately all of his friends desert him. Then, one day, when he’s in class, he notices that 5 strange kids go out of the classroom and he chases them. He then lands in a secret laboratory underground and his braces turn into weapons in his mouth that only he can control. When they find him in the lab, he becomes a spy. After a couple of days of training though, he sees that no one likes him and he wants to quit. He stays on the team and that’s when the team finds out about a crazy man named Dr. Jigsaw. He steals scientists to make them invent a machine that will move continents with a blast that rockets up, hits a satellite, and flies back to Earth. Fortunately, the team learns of this and invades his secret lair destroying his machine. Then, they find out that one of their members is really Dr. Jigsaw’s secret leader.
