Lovereading view...

Interest Age 9+ Reading Age 8+. Unleashing a virus in the ICT class looks like a harmless prank. Nahim only sends the link to Polly and Amina as they build their website about a stage school for a bit of a laugh. But, the laugh goes awry when all three classmates find themselves pulled right inside the internet. How on earth will they get home? It’s a scary adventure with lots of laughs along the way – and a very satisfactory conclusion.
