I love a good acronym, a word formed from the first letters of each word in a phrase and pronounced as a separate word.
NASA = National Aeronautical and Space Administration
ZIP code = Zone Improvement Plan
SHIELD = Strategic Homeland Intervention, Enforcement and Logistics Division
Yes, that last one is from the Avengers franchise, and it provides a very nice seque into the real subject of today's blog post -- the N.E.R.D.S. series by Michael Buckley. NERDS stands for National Espionage, Rescue and Defense Society. The members of this society use their talents and an array of gadgets to fight evil from a secret headquarters beneath their school. The fifth and final book, Attack of the BULLIES, comes out today, September 3, 2013. Did you notice it features another acronym? Your observation skills are obviously off-the-chart! Put them to use. Find all of these titles on the shelves at Hoover Public Library.
