Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
Cat and Alex are excited to be at the world's most popular comics convention--and they're even more excited to compete in the Quest, a huge scavenger hunt run by their favorite nerdy celebrity. The big prize: a chance to meet him! The twins ditch their older sister Fi and set off to find geeky clues, tackle nerdy challenges, and cross as many items as possible off their Quest list, which includes volunteering at an Artist Alley booth, gathering cosplayers in enough colors to make a double rainbow, and actually finding something healthy to eat in the convention center! Can the twins work together even when they disagree on how to compete? Will Fi find Cat and Alex before their parents realize they're missing? Most importantly, can these ultimate fans complete the ultimate Quest?

    Twins Cat (attention-seeking and competitive) and Alex (shy and focused) are at one of the biggest and most popular comic conventions, GeekiCon! They come every year with their famous comics-creator parents, but this year is going to be different. Cat and Alex are competing in an unofficial and unsanctioned convention scavenger hunt called Quest. Their goal is to upload all the items and complete all the activities on the list by the end of GeekiCon's first day. They quickly (and deliberately) lose their older sister, Fiona, in the throng of smelly cosplaying nerds. But while they're separated, Fiona makes an unlikely friend who opens her eyes to what convention culture is really about. Meanwhile the twins endeavor to work together, despite having different approaches to competitions. Maggs offers an exciting read as the siblings try to evade the villainous security guard, complete the list, and meet some incredible people along the way. A geektastic book for those who love conventions or who want a sneak peek into comic-con culture. Grades 4-7. Copyright 2020 Booklist Reviews.
