It is October 23, 1962. As U.S. and Russian ships confront one another off the shores of Cuba, and the world teeters on the edge of all-out nuclear war, Shawn Stuckey and his friends form the Nuclear Undercover Kids Espionage Service (N.U.K.E.S.) in order to investigate and expose their science teacher as a Russian spy. Thus begins a series of harrowing but humorous adventures that lead to a surprising conclusion. "N.U.K.E.S. works on so many levels. Besides being laugh-out-loud funny, it shows the reader the value of looking for the best in people, especially in the worst of times."
