A long time ago I remember reading a book about a kid who fights some enemy (aliens I believe) but not much else. The only key fact I remember is that one of these enemies picked up a coin and bent it in half with their eyelid to demonstrate their strength. The enemies had tiers to them as well. I have a vague memory of there being an elephant on the cover, but I cannot say for certain

Any help would be appreciated!

I have found it! It was The Dangerous Days of Daniel X by James Patterson. The specific excerpt can be found from this pdf (hit download) on page 21


“Oh, I hope not. Say, I’ve read you have Level 4 strength. True or false?” Orkng took out a quarter and bent it in half — with its eyelid!
