S.M.A.R.T.S. and the Invisible Robot
by Melinda Metz (Author) and Heath McKenzie (Illustrator)

Booktalk: The S.M.A.R.T.S. can’t wait for the local high school’s Art of Science exhibition. It’s sure to be a great show, except for one problem–the centerpiece necklace has vanished!

Her grandmother raised her eyebrows in agreement. “Yes, granddaughter, you will walk a great distance, but keep in mind, your destination is not running away; it will be reached eventually.
