Review - Heroes of the Dustbin (Janitors 5) by Tyler Whitesides

Although their enemies are powerful, their allies few, Spencer and his team of Rebels are not giving up! But what chance do a handful of kids and one rescued janitor have against the combined evil of the Founding Witches and the Sweepers? Can the Rebels close the source of all Glop and stop the Toxites once and for all-or is the world doomed to fall under the control of the sinister Bureau of Educational Maintenance? This explosive series finale is a gripping ride through conflicted loyalties and daring escapes, unexpected alliances and betrayals, and an ending you will never forget!



4.5 stars

Heroes of the Dustbin is the fifth and final book in the Janitors series by Tyler Whitesides.  The Rebels are not faring well in the battle for the future of education, the kids are still fighting, but things are getting more and more hopeless.  It is difficult to really describe anything that is going on, due to not wanting to include spoilers for any of the books in the series.

Tyler once again did an excellent job writing a book that is accessible for a wide audience.  My young daughter (almost 5) enjoys the series, so does my wife (age redacted).  This book had some pretty interesting twists and the ending was not what I was expecting.  I really liked the way each chapter seemed to have a hook that pulled the reader in, making it difficult to stop reading.

There is honestly not a lot more to say about a book this far into the series.  If you have enjoyed the books so far this will not disappoint you, if you have not read any of them yet, pick up a copy of Janitors and give the series a try.
