    This book is another fantastic read! I love the adventures. Max is such a positive role model. A busy body, Max is always on the go and doesn't like sitting around doing nothing. I like that she looks up to geniuses for inspirations. I like how Max thinks on her feet and implement what she has to protect herself from the bad guys like using the cheeseburgers as a weapon. Since this book is the second in the series, readers get a chance to know more about other CMI team members. Klaus is This book is another fantastic read! I love the adventures. Max is such a positive role model. A busy body, Max is always on the go and doesn't like sitting around doing nothing. I like that she looks up to geniuses for inspirations. I like how Max thinks on her feet and implement what she has to protect herself from the bad guys like using the cheeseburgers as a weapon. Since this book is the second in the series, readers get a chance to know more about other CMI team members. Klaus is definitely an interesting fella!
 This book is told in the third person point of view following Maxine (Max), 12 physics prodigy, as she attempted to sneak out of her secure home. This secure home with 2 bodyguards was provided by Ben Abercrombie, the 14 years old billionaire and CMI's benefactor who insisted that Max lives here for her safety because the bad guys from The Corp wanted to kidnap her. This book continues from book one where Max should stay home to lay low while waiting for the next big Change Makers Institute (CMI) mission. Max is very smart. She teaches college students at Columbia University and participate with other international intelligent kids in CMI projects that focus on making the world a better place. This year the CMI team are going to Ireland and India to solve water contamination problem. 
Max Einstein: Rebels with a Cause is very well written and a fast paced read! I love learning more about Einstein and his quotes. I love how math & science is utilized to apply to real life crisis and made easier to understand. An example is the situation at the party: Tisa using baking soda with vinegar to create carbon dioxide gas and then mix it with hot peppers to use as a weapon. I know about the mixture but I don't know that the combination is called carbon dioxide gas and to learn it in an adventure book is much easier to comprehend! I like the topic of clean water crisis in this story because it's such an important basic needs of human. Robots are interesting to get to know and I do recommend everyone to read this book. Pro: fast paced, page turner, adventure, math & science, robots, Ireland, India, water
 Con: none 
I rate it 5 stars! ***Disclaimer: Many thanks to Little, Brown, and Company for the opportunity to read and review. Please be assured that my opinions are honest.

    This is even better than the first book. Since all the characters and the world have already been set up, all that's left is to jump right in with Max and the rest of the genius kids. There's plenty of action, lots of easy to understand science, and a solid social conscience message. Definitely something I'd give to any kid to read.

    I know that societal problems need to be looked at differently because if you try to solve them with solutions you have always used; you fit Einstein's theory of stupidity.

The adventures that were packed into this little novel along side Max Einstein still being a great role model was seriously so refreshing. In Rebels with a Cause, we get to see more of Max thinking on her feet and implementing crazy plans to save not only herself, but her team and the world as well. You also learn more about the villains in this novel, which made for an interesting addition to the plot! Again, James Patterson really knows how to write a captivating story that is not only well-written but fast-paces as well. There are more math/science lessons in Rebels with a Cause and I really enjoyed that they were applied to real life problems. The way that each were explained were written in an extremely easy to understand way so that the reader, young or old, can know what is being put into the solution. The task that Max and her team were given to fix was a water crisis and I really loved that this was the main problem in the story. Having clean water available to all is a real world crisis. Water is an extremely important part of the human survival and this topic really hit the spot while reading. James wrote Rebels with a Cause again with a fast-paced, adventure packed, and informative nature. I highly recommend to all!

We should strive to do things in his spirit; not to use violence in fighting for a cause, but by non-participation and what we believe is evil. - Albert Einstein”

    This is the second volume in the entertaining series for middle school readers that features Max, a 12-year-old girl genius who admires and emulates Albert Einstein. She and her fellow genius pals band together again to solve environmental problems in Ireland and India, all while being pursued by a bad guy who wants to bring Max over to his bad side.

Although it is a bit out there in terms of logic and practicality, the story is fun and educational. I enjoy the references to Einstein and his work, the many quotes scattered throughout the story, and the bonus information on Gandhi. Strong series that I hope actual middle schoolers are reading.

    My name is Max Einstein, and I am the smartest twelve-year-old in the world. Unfortunately, Dr. Zimm of the Corp wants to capture me, so I can help his organization make evil weapons and more money than they'll ever need. It's clear that I'm no longer safe in New York, so Ben (teenage billionaire and head of CMI) has flown my team over to Ireland to help the people of Siobhan's hometown. It's what we do.

Unfortunately, Dr. Zimm of the Corp wants to capture me, so I can help his organization make evil weapons and more money than they'll ever need. It's clear that I'm no longer safe in New York, so Ben (teenage billionaire and head of CMI) has flown my team over to Ireland to help the people of Siobhan's hometown. It's what we do. People in the town have become seriously ill from drinking tainted well water, so we need to figure out a sustainable way to solve the problem. When we're done here, I hear there's another water issue across the planet. It seems there's a shortage of water, and local officials are using the situation to make money off the citizens. Well, here's another series where I didn't start by reading the first book. It will probably appeal to a select audience of middle grade readers. While the conflicts were big and important to the world, they didn't create much tension in the plot. I didn't get a sense of urgency as I read, and the obstacles were easily overcome. Some readers might be turned off by the many references to science, physics, and Einstein, although I enjoyed them. The group of kid geniuses used science and technology to resolve the problems, so the solutions were realistic and feasible. Including a team member who wanted to replace Max as leader added an amusing angle to some events. The other team members didn't take him seriously, but the situation added a twist to a climax. Overall, this was a fun book that can be enjoyed by many young readers, and you may want to give it a shot.

    The Max Einstein book series is a blend between Stephen King's The Institute and an episode of the short-lived '90s animated series James Bond Jr.. While the target audience is aimed at middle graders, the books do contain a bit of violence and heavy themes that might not be suitable for every young reader. As an adult, I enjoyed reading Max Einstein: Rebels With A Cause, and it has nothing to do with the fact that I'm a James Patterson fan.

As an adult, I enjoyed reading Max Einstein: Rebels With A Cause, and it has nothing to do with the fact that I'm a James Patterson fan. I've been a little critical of many of Mr. Patterson's recent releases and, to me, the author's children's books are better written than his adult thrillers. Overall, Max Einstein: Rebels With A Cause is well-written, fast-paced adventure that both young and adults will enjoy reading. The story is enhanced by cute illustrations by Beverly Johnson. Warning: There are a few math and science lessons! However, the lessons are there as plot devices so young readers probably won't even notice them. Once again, Max Einstein: Rebels With A Cause is a pretty good read!

    Second in the series. This book picks up shortly after the first ended. Max has been established as an adjunct faculty member at an New York university under an alias. She's bored and sneaks away from her bodyguards to begin the book. A kidnapping attempt takes place immediately following this action and the story is launched. The save the world theme continues - this time the CMI team solves water issues in Ireland and India. They defeat the Corp and develop closer friendships with each other. Second in the series.

They even convert the "evil" AI robot at the end and make him part of their team. Max remains a strong female lead surrounded by other strong girls. They also work together with the boys on their team, and even Klaus comes to understand why Max was chosen as the team leader.

    3.5 stars This was a fun and quick sequel. It was little predictable but honestly the characters are just so much fun and obviously this is at the end of the day aimed at kids who would probably enjoy this even more. That said, I had fun reading this and I will be continuing since a) it's a fun series to read b) the mystery surrounding Max is very intriguing and I have a lot of theories. Also c) those doodles! I didn't know there will illustrations and now I'm tempted to actually read book 3.5 stars This was a fun and quick sequel.

    Max Einstein Rebels With A Cause by James Patterson is a great read full of adventures. Max Einstein, who is constantly on the run from the Corps, is faced with a crisis in India where she has to come up with a creative solution to help the people of India, as well as keep her location and work a secret. I found this book to be a little repetitive and predictable, but a good read overall.
