The year is 2071.
Kia Krumpet is eleven years old.
She bites her nails (a lot) and flies an aero-scooter.
And she dreams of building her sixty-seven inventions at PIPS, the Piedmont Inventor’s Prep School.
The event is the Piedmont Challenge.
A challenge in which all 6th grade students solve a series of tasks.
The winners compete in teams to earn a place at PIPS, a place where they can let their imaginations and creativity run free.
The rest of the students are forced to study only one school subject for all of 7th and 8th grade.
(That’s two whole years!)
The place is Camp Piedmont.
The coolest and most innovative camp around.
But in a world full of floating playgrounds, switching bunk beds,
and robotic monkey assistants, there’s more at stake than anyone expected,
and there is only one team with the courage to figure out what that is.
Meet The Crimson Five.
Because sometimes it takes a friend (or four) to help make your dreams come true.
