Egmont Passage: Monkey Business is a modern-day, magical blend of Harry Potter's battle against evil, and the misadventures of Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn. The results of the combination are explosive. Student broadcasters Izzy, JJ, and Zeke are on a wild adventure seeking the truth about America's foundation. While televising a live report on activists protesting the Pledge of Allegiance, Zeke is injured on his boat in a mysterious blast. The accident, if it was one, complicates matters for FBI Detective Peterson McKenzie, who is already dealing with a community plagued with arson, stolen American flags and Bibles, and random sightings of a monkey on the loose. The FBI throws Operation Halloween into high gear when evidence is dug up revealing Bayway High is on a hit list. But the daring BHS-TV crew has a few tricks of their own. To learn more about the vision for America by our Founders, the teens use a magical doubloon to travel back to Independence Day in 1776. On their journey the teens gain insight from George Washington, and meet writers of The Declaration Of Independence. In Antoni Fabia's third vel, Monkey Business, he explores Thomas Jefferson's often misinterpreted separation of church and state quote. This often funny, and always exciting, adventure vel will keep readers wondering what the devil is going on as the high school teens find themselves knee-deep in Monkey Business.
