Twins Coke and Pepsi McDonald didn't want to jump off a cliff. They didn't want to get hit by poisoned darts from blowguns either. And they certainly don't want to get locked in their burning school, thrown into a pit at the top of a sand dune, or drowned in a vat of liquefied SPAM. But what are you supposed to do when you're being chased by your insane health teacher and two guys in bowler hats who are trying to kill you? On a cross-country vacation with their parents, they fend off strange assassins as they try to come to terms with their being part of a top-secret government organization known as The Genius Files. One thing's for sure, it'll be a snap for Coke and Pep to write their essays on "How I Spent My Summer Vacation."

Crossing the heart of Africa an odyssey of love and adventure by Julian Smith ( )
4 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Here is the amazing true story of Julian Smith, who retraced the journey of legendary British explorer Ewart "the Leopard" Grogan, the first man to cross the length of Africa, in hopes of winning the heart of the woman he loved. In 1898 the dashing young British explorer Ewart "the Leopard" Grogan was in love. In order to prove his mettle to his beloved--and her aristocratic stepfather--he set out on a quest to become the first person to walk across Africa, 'a feat hitherto thought by many explorers to be impossible' (New York Times, 1900). In 2007 thirty-five-year-old American journalist Julian Smith faced a similar problem with his girlfriend of six years -- and decided to address it in the same way Grogan had more than a hundred years before: he was going to retrace the Leopard's 4,500-mile journey for love and glory through the lakes, volcanoes, savannas, and crowded modern cities of Africa. Crossing the Heart of Africa is the unforgettable account of twin adventures, as Julian beautifully interweaves his own contemporary journey with Grogan's larger-than-life tale of charging elephants, cannibal attacks, deadly jungles, and romantic triumph
