About the Book:
Bullies Beware! EKHO Is Here!
Ten-year-old Elvis Jones is tired of being picked on, taunted and teased by the bullies at his elementary school. So he does what any smart, technologically savvy kid his age does – he creates “EKHO” – the Evil Kid Hunting Organization, a sophisticated network of kid spies and secret agents that utilize a variety of cool gadgets and stealth methods to stay one step ahead of the enemy – the bullies. They hire kids, make them swear allegiance to the organization, and train them in the ways of the spy world, with regular missions posted to an encrypted website that require smarts and skill, especially when the bullies catch on and form a counter-spy group, “DEKE” – Destroy EKHO Kids Everywhere.
It’s all in good fun, until the kids of EKHO must put their skills to use for a far more serious purpose. As field agents come across evidence of a sinister conspiracy at their school, EKHO is forced to deal with a whole new danger when some of the bullies begin acting strangely, as if under some kind of weird mind control…and some of the school staff are in on it. As they deal with betrayal, sabotage, infiltration and intrigue, the agents of EKHO are left wondering –
Whom can you trust when the kid standing next to you might not be entirely human?
