In Scrub Kids, three friends named Zac, James, and John discover a mysterious sphere on the ground in the same place they lost track of their friend AJ. As they continue searching for AJ, a guide known as The Death Smiley, or DS for short, brings them through many worlds, revealing how the universal planes truly work behind the scenes. But along the way to finding their friend, the kids attract the attention of an evil overlord known as Zypher who sends his bounty hunter, Darkhoust, to stop the children from learning the secrets that The Death Smiley has left to tell.

Scrub Kids is perfect for fans of Pittacus Lore and lower young adult speculative fiction that plays out across an expansive universe. In early reviews, readers praise Lee's vibrant world building and engaging writing style.

Furthermore, Scrub Kids references many real-life galaxies—including the Milky Way, Tadpole, and Hoag's Object—to add an educational component to Lee's work. From independent reading to classroom libraries, Scrub Kids will make a wonderful addition that inspires children and young teens to imagine, create, and never give up.
