Gordon Korman, Masterminds: Criminal Destiny

Masterminds: Criminal Destiny (On Sale: February 2, 2016) is the fantastic sequel to Masterminds, Gordon Korman’s thrilling middle-grade series about a group of kids who discover they were cloned from the DNA of the greatest criminal masterminds in history for a sociological experiment.

After their narrow escape from their “perfect” hometown, Eli, Tori, Amber, and Malik are finally in the real world and determined to expose the leaders of Serenity. They decide to go straight to the top, to track down the mysterious billionaire and founder of Project Osiris. But evading capture by breaking laws and sneaking into houses, hotels, buses, and cars—are they becoming the criminals they were destined to be?

What they discover will change everything—leading them straight back into the heart of the experiment, in order to uncover the deadly criminals they’re cloned from—and any evidence that will convince the outside world believe the truth.
