A thought-provoking story of perspective and influence in the social-media age, from an award-winning author.

Could you last six whole weeks without your phone? Six weeks without sharing photos, without group messages, without being kept in the social-media loop? An eccentric entrepreneur has challenged Esther’s year group to do just that, and the winners will walk away with 1000 pounds.
For Esther, whose dad, sister and baby nephew live thousands of miles away in New York, the prize might be her only chance to afford flights for a visit … But can she really stay disconnected for long enough to win? An astute and enthralling examination of the highs and lows of social-media life from one of the most compelling voices in teenage fiction.
