At first this book seemed to be a children's version of Slumdog Millionaire: Four kids take part in a quiz and everybody else although they are among the youngest competitors. As in Slumdog Millionaire nobody understands how they know all the answers. So little stories are told showing how they had all this knowledge.
But this book soon takes a different turn. It is most of all the story of a wonderful friendship. I wish I had friends like these four kids!
