THE STORMGLASS PROTOCOL is the literary equivalent of a popcorn movie. As Jake upends his suburban life to chase villains around the globe, you're not going to pause to ponder how he's feeling about all this. You're just going to chase after him breathlessly. There are enough cool gadgets to impress James Bond, but the kids need to use their smarts to save the day.

The story strains credulity, naturally: The villains and their schemes are goofily over the top. But the topical themes -- the decline of honeybees around the world and the threat of terrorism -- may raise some complex questions for family discussion.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
