Summary
When Billy Broccoli finds out he's got to demonstrate a special skill for a class contest, he thinks he's got it made. With his ghostly best friend, Hoover Porterhouse, by his side, Billy's got the competition in the bag. But when Billy lands a spot on the sixth-grade team, he starts spending more time with his new teammates than he does with Hoover. And the Hoove plays second fiddle to no one.
The Hoove is back in the hauntingly hilarious new series from bestselling authors Henry Winkler and Lin Oliver!

It's time for Moorepark Middle School's annual Speak Out Challenge, and Billy Broccoli thinks he's got it made. With his best friend Hoover Porterhouse--the ghost with the most--by his side, Billy's got the competition in the bag. Who wouldn't vote for a demonstration on mind reading?

But when Billy lands a spot on the seventh grade team, he starts spending more time with his new teammates than he does with Hoover. And the Hoove plays second fiddle to no one! If Billy's not careful, his secret weapon might just vanish into thin air, leaving Billy to pick up the pieces of a demonstration day disaster!

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Picking up where Zero to Hero (2012) ended, Billy Broccoli is still adjusting to his newly blended family and his ghostly roommate, Hoover Porterhouse III. In preparation for a school competition, ghost and boy develop a mind reading trick that does wonders for Billy's popularity but leaves the Hoover jealous and petulant. As in the first book, Billy finds himself in an ethical quandary, which he resolves on his own because his innate decency leads him to the right solution. Although Hoover is supposed to be the mentor, he learns more from Billy than vice versa, even if neither has realized it yet.--Dean, Kara Copyright 2010 Booklist"
