EKHO 2: Worldwide Alien Resistance (MG)

Bullies beware Elvis and the gang are back and they will not tolerate any bullying of anyone in this the sequel to EKHO (Evil Kids Hunting Organization).  This year they even have a guy on the inside a DEKE, one of their agents is defecting, but there is more weirdness going on than just that.  Every time the schools announcement radio comes on the DEKE kids do really strange things than Elvis and his crew find that that the DEKE's have these weird implants that cause voice to skull communication and even more Elvis finds out it is not just his school it is schools all over the world, alien technology.   This is a awesome anti-bullying book without kids knowing it because it adds so much more to it like the aliens.  If you go and read Marie and especially Max Jones story you will see where EKHO started and it is such a awesome story and would be awesome if we did have EKHO chapters in schools. I have been hooked on the EKHO book since I read the first one several years ago by accident and been bugging for another, now that it is finally here it is as good as I expected and will be bugging for book 3 now so watch out world.

The House on Turner Lane (ADULT AUDIO)

When Olivia goes missing on a hiking trip her sister Rachel has to put the pieces together to find out what happened to her.   Arnold convinced his disabled mom to put two of their empty rooms up for rent to earn them extra cash, and him some extra footage, and who knows what else in the house.  This can be a creepy book and the awesome voices of the character if you have the audio done by the wonderful voice actor Jack de Golia makes it even creeper in parts, he does such a greet job on all of the characters.  But at the heart of the book is a murder mystery that you want to help Rachel with but can't.  This book will keep you on the edge of your seat and rooting for the good guys through all of the action and suspense, and the worst part is you can have a Arnold in your neighborhood and never know it.

The Amber Light: Black Acres, Book 3 (ADULT AUDIO)

This was a awesome and exciting installment to the series and one made very much better by Narrator Joe Hempel if you are doing the audio version.  Either format is so much fun with this series it reminds me of the old time penny dreadful where the suck you in and you have to wait for the next installment to see what happens to the main characters. These characters are great and work together to bring the story out, while the story  itself has all the twists and turns and actions that will suck you in and not let you go just like the Amber light that is shining to bring you in.

Welcome to 4B (Bad Kids in 4B) (YA)

After circumstances send Mila to live with her Aunt far from what she knows, and her friends in the blink of a eye and with out being able to say goodbye, she has a bad week in her new school.  But making her teacher cry was the breaking point, she gets sent to room 4B, but the  kids in there are nothing like her  they are angry and have real problems, Mila is the popular type, she is a cheerleader. She wants out but the principal won't let her, not yet.  She also wants her mom out but the doctors say not yet, will she find the strength and patience to make it through both.  This was a wonderful book for teen reluctant readers or readers who might have issues in their lives too.  This book has the a bit of everything action, drama, and suspense to keep any reader engaged.  The characters are kids taken right out of a high school.  This is a really good book and I can't wait until I can get the next one to see what happens to Mila, her Aunt, her mother, and her friends now.
