Meet Misfits, Inc. Investigations: Peter, the Genius; Jake, the Athlete; Byte, the Computer Whiz; and Mattie, the "Magician." These four talented teenagers don't quite fit in with their peers, but they do manage to find true friendship with each other as they crack a mystery.

In their first case, the super-sleuths band together to clear Mattie's grandfather, who stands falsely accused of stealing a million-dollar computer chip from a local science museum. When the FBI and local police can't turn up any leads, the Misfits draw upon their own special talents to lead them to the thieves and solve the mystery of THE VANISHING CHIP.
