About the Book

Told through the eyes of eleven-year-old Jake DeMartino, The Elite Eight is an action-packed and humorous story about eight boys who travel to Italy to take part in an international nerf competition. During their exciting adventure, the boys experience all sorts of things for the first time, but perhaps the most fun is a gigantic pillow fight in their hotel room that quickly turns into an all-out nerf war. After conquering two teams from Germany and Poland, the boys are crowned the international nerf war champions for their age group and are given a memorable recognition ceremony. Upon returning home to the United States, a very special surprise awaits them that proves to change their young lives forever. For those boys who love nerf wars, The Elite Eight might just quickly become their favorite book of all time!
