Summary:  Copernicus H. Stringfellow, a.k.a. Nick, is not your run-of-the-mill genius. His mind is so powerful it can stop a speeding automobile or stem internal bleeding. As Nick goes about quietly doing good, he discovers that his powers are greatly enhanced by the nutrients present in Twinkies. Follow Nick on his amazing adventures in this humorous and exciting action-packed book for all ages.

Review:  This book was just so much fun to read.  Nick Stringfellow is a very appealing character - just very different!  Even though Nick is a little bizarre - kind of out there - he is a wonderfully generous soul.  I would love to be around someone like him.  He would definitely make life interesting and FUN!!!!  As the summary states, Nick is a genius - based on the descriptions, he is way beyond genius!!  He literally knows a lot about everything!!!  He goes out of his way to do what he can for those that are less fortunate - those that suffer in some way shape or form!  And what makes him even more fun - he is constantly eating Twinkies!!! This is his brain / power food!  Have you ever heard of any such thing!  I LOVE IT!!!!

The story was very fast paced, but so easy to follow.  I love following Nick through everything he did!  I just wish there was more.  I hope that there will be a sequel to this book.

There were some parts of the story that just left you hanging - kind of unfinished and forgotten about in the end. I hate that they were unresolved when I finished.  These unresolved subplots would be wonderful to build on to create that sequel.  Regardless, even with those dangling elements, this is a great book that I highly recommend.
