My Rating=5 Stars
Source: Received a copy for an honest review

Spencer knew that from the moment the Founding Witches had returned, the Rebel Janitors had begun disappearing. So many schools were defenseless now, the students’ minds rotting from Toxite breath while the janitors vanished without a trace. Then it became personal.

Although their enemies are powerful, their allies few, Spencer and his team of Rebels are not giving up! But what chance do a handful of kids and one rescued janitor have against the combined evil of the Founding Witches and the Sweepers? Can the Rebels close the source of all Glop and stop the Toxites once and for all-or is the world doomed to fall under the control of the sinister Bureau of Educational Maintenance? This explosive series finale is a gripping ride through conflicted loyalties and daring escapes, unexpected alliances and betrayals, and an ending you will never forget!

Spencer, Daisy and Dez start this final book in a desperate situation. The Rebels are disappearing and things aren't going their way. As they figure out what they need to do next, the task seems impossible. They can't afford to lose, though, so they set off to accomplish it. Of course, that just leads to the next task and this book doesn't let up until the very end.

I have enjoyed this series from the very beginning and this was a fabulous way to end it! Spencer, Daisy and Dez have come a long way together. Spencer and Daisy are never quite sure which side Dez is on and there are times that they need to trust him and hope he comes through for them. There's never a dull moment as they go from one situation to the next with hardly any down time.

I've read this entire series with my children (it was originally a Costco find for me) and we have been thoroughly entertained while reading about trash, toxites, glopified cleaning supplies, Rebels, Witches, Sweepers and, of course, elementary school janitors! My children asked to keep reading more chapters frequently and I was glad because I wanted to continue reading, too! Questions are answered and there is an unlikely hero in the end. It's a fun, creative, entertaining series, for both kids and adults! I am a Tyler Whitesides fan and I look forward to reading what he comes up with next!
