The Star Online and Scholastic Books are giving away three sets of EJ12 Girl Hero books this month.

EJ12 is for children aged seven and older. The series is about a secret agent named EJ12 who cracks codes and foils evil plans all over the world. However, as her alter ego, Emma Jacks, she finds school and her peers a tad harder to handle.

Each set of books being given away includes the following titles:

Hot & Cold

Some evil mastermind is trying to melt the polar ice cap. It is up to Special Agent EJ12 to crack the codes and foil the plan. That may be easier than handling the school Ice Queen of Mean.

Jump Start

The evil agency Shadow has some dastardly plans brewing in the rainforest. EJ12 will have to save the day. But can she also deal with the state gym competition?

In The Dark

EJ12 is tasked to crack Shadow's codes before they turn the lights out on the Shine network. As her alter ego, Emma, how will she cope at her best friend's slumber party.
