EKHO by Marie D. Jones Review & $25 Amazon Or Paypal Giveaway
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 brilliant kid his age would do: he creates EKHO, the Evil Kid Hunting Organization, a sophisticated network of kid spies and secret agents that utilize a variety of cool gadgets to stay one step ahead of the enemy – the bullies. They hire kids, make them swear allegiance to the organization, and train them as Commandos, Privates, and Elite Spies. As kids rise through the ranks, the missions, posted on an encrypted EKHO website, require more smarts and skill, especially when the bullies form their own counterspy group called DEKE (Destroy EKHO Kids Everywhere).
It’s all in good fun, until the kids of EKHO must put their pretend skills to use for far more serious, and dangerous, missions. As field agents come across evidence of more sinister forces, they now have to deal with the strange, weird, and the unknown as they look for the truth about the bizarre and creepy threats to their school, their families, and their own lives. They experience betrayal, intrigue, infiltration and counter-espionage as well as teachers and adults who act more mysterious with each passing day, which leaves Elvis and his EKHO team wondering: who can you trust when the person standing next to you might not be entirely human?
EKHO is a entertaining book dealing with a serious problem of bullying by kids to other kids. One kid decides to take action and talked to his friends who got on board. Soon others wanted to join.
They worked together with cool gadgets to record what was going on.
The characters seem like real people and believable situations some kids face every day. Their is also a element of science fiction. These kids are smart, fun, and want to be normal and not bullied. The kids are mostly 4th graders and younger.
The setting is California grade school. The pacing is good and keeps your attention.
The gadgets look like fun and I would love to have them to play with too. Of course I would have to get my kids show me how to work them.
I would read another book about EKHO and find out what else is going on in their school.
This book is aimed at middle school and younger but is fun, full of action and positive that anyone could enjoy it.
I was given this ebook to read and in exchange of a honest review and to be part of its blog tour by Netgalley.
