The Boy Who Hit Play
It’s Elvis’s 12th Birthday, and as he blows out the candles on his cake, it’s time to ask the question: “Why?”
Why was he left on a bench at the zoo 12 years ago, and who left him there? With the only clues to where he came from being the Norwegian newspaper he was wrapped in, he turns to George, his now dad, and Lloyd, ever present friend of George for help. As they follow the clues, a shadow man dogs their every move, and the closer they get to Elvis finding the truth, the more dangerous the shadow becomes. Every answer leads to more questions. Will Elvis find the answers he’s looking for?
