The year is 3020. Pip@256X#YY.3_7 is lonely and bored: she goes to virtual school on her G-Glasses, she only has a talking cat and parrot to hang out with, and she can’t even leave her LivingSpace due to the extreme heat and floods outside. Until the day that Pip explores a glowing ring in a lab and finds herself in a warehouse, in 2019, where she meets boy-inventor Rahul – who is also lonely and bored. A terrifically entertaining time-slip adventure that combines action, laugh-out-loud humour and the importance of friendship.
