A new middle-grade chapter book from Hoop Kid is on it’s way!
What if you found out your favorite NBA star, with his otherworldly skills, was in fact from another planet? And what if the day you finally win a pair of his signature sneakers they’re stolen minutes later by a sneaky little blue alien, who‘s on a special mission to collect all of the coolest sneakers on earth? Sounds super-crazy, right! Well, that's what happens to the 14-year-old basketball fan, and sneakerhead, Bernard Jones—and that’s just the first chapter!
ELITE SQUAD is an action-adventure, middle-grade chapter book that follows six Basketball-fanatic friends, Bernard, Alex, Layla, Eric, Nina, and Mo after they are recruited to be a top-secret team of specially-trained space-alien hunters. Disguised as NBA ball boys and girls—they take on the responsibility of saving the game of basketball on earth from being destroyed by a mysterious space-alien threat. But to do so, they’ll ultimately need to overcome their doubts and fears and band together as the ELITE SQUAD.
