From the Publisher: A secret society of Janitors with wizard-like powers continue their battle, and now, the stakes are even higher. The Bureau of Educational Maintenance is after Alan Zumbro and this time they mean business - deadly business. Spencer, Daisy, and their little team of rebels must find the source of all magical Glop and destroy it before it can destroy the world as we know it. No small task with the BEM and their monster Toxites at their heels. It's a wild and dangerous ride as they follow the trail of clues all the way to the hiding place of the mysterious Aurans: guardians of a secret landfill. What they discover there will change the way Spencer sees himself, not to mention the fate of the rebels.
3 Stars

My attention is starting to wane with this series.

That’s disappointing because I was really looking forward to finding a really good Middle Grade series.

In this installment, Spencer has been reunited with his dad – but something is off. Spencer is frustrated and his attitude frequently shows. Daisy is more and more nonsensical. Rather than growing up, she seems to be regressing.

These kids are in elementary school – it’s not quite time for the angsty teen years!

We got to take a trip to an enchanted landfill and finally meet the 13 Aurans. They were not what I expected. I don’t like most of them.

The Rebel Janitors are really no closer to stopping the BEM than they were before this book. I just can’t really see what the point of this book was – it didn’t do a lot to further the story. Unless it was just needed to introduce a lot of characters. But that’s kind of a waste of a whole book, if you ask me.
