Synopsis

The Letter K is tired of being known exclusively for words like kangaroo and kickball. K has a sneaky side of knees, knights, and knuckles—a silent secret identity. The Secret Society of Silent Consonants can only be joined by consonants with a special password: a word featuring their letter in its silent form. There’s just one problem: it seems there are twenty-one consonants who qualify.
