EKHO (Evil Kids Hunting Organization) MG
This is a really great book that not only shows great diversity among the children and adults, but also in the way it handles the problem of bullying. Yes, the school has a no bullying policy, and yes, the school had a anti-bullying assemble, but when the EKHO kids first brought the problem to the principal it was kind of swept under the carpet probably like a lot of schools still do. That is why Elvis and his friends decided to take a stand and formed EKHO, a peaceful way to deal with the bullies, through sound and video recordings (to use as proof), and sheer number members to show up at the scene of the bullying to defuse the immediate situations.
I found the whole concept of this book just so cool I wanted to know where EKHO was when I was being teased in elementary school, I would have joined right up! I really can't wait to see what 5th grade brings for Elvis and his friends, and of course EKHO.
