Robin Brande is my new favorite author and the only author that has been able to pull my middle aged attention into a young adult book. I lived through middle school and although it was years ago, I could easily picture similar "bullies" from my memories. Times have changed, bullies are tougher now and sometimes scarier. But Secret Security Squad is a great way to help young people feel empowered. These students band together to use their various talents to try to make a difference. This is no utopia, some of their ideas don't work out quite as planned...so much like real life. There's a peak into the good side of these characters and you also see the tougher exterior that they present to protect themselves.
But Darby, the main character, has a vulnerability that is so identifiable. She strives to be "invisible" even though she is far more talented than she portrays.
If you have children, you should read this book. If you have children, THEY should read this book. If you love a good clean story that is real....this is the book for you. Now, what do I do until Part 2 is available?

Review by: Shiela Blankemeier on March 14, 2012 :
Of course Darby's plan does not go perfectly, but to my great joy, OPERATION ERASE surely does! With a pitch-perfect tween voice, conflict, and sweet crushing, Robin Brande's MG debut is a fun, fast read that not only entertains but also gives hope to all facing the joys and horrors of junior high. Robin Brande tackles bullying with an unflinching eye and a creative, non-violent solution. How effective it is remains to be seen since this is a planned series, but as the situation goes from bad to worse, I cannot wait to find out!
