The Smartest id in the Universe is a great start to the brand new series by Chris Grabenstein, the author of the Lemoncello series and other amazing books. Jake is a slacker. He is a cool kid who doesn't put much effort into school. He doesn't care about academics, but that changes when he eats some jelly beans at his mom's work. Being careless, Jake doesn't look at the label, and it turns out those jellybeans were knowledge enhancers. Now Jake knows almost everything in the world, and people are starting to get suspicious. He excels on the IQ tests, and even signs up for the Quiz Bowl with his best friend and crush. But when his crush starts to tell about a tale and how the principle is going to shut down the school, it's up to Jake to use his newfound intelligence to save his school and his crush's legacy. Will he be able to outsmart everyone in his school to save it, or will his knowledge fail him and his friends? I really enjoyed this book because of the idea and humor this book presented. I recommend this book to readers!
