Keisha is a total science geek. She loves space, physics, engineering, chemistry – you name it, she’s fascinated by it. She’s also obsessed with boyband On The Up, whose dreamy good looks are the hot topic of her friends’ conversations.
Two amazing things coincide to make one terrible dilemma.
On The Up has agreed to come and play at Keisha’s school disco! But the students have to raise enough money to pay for the band. Keisha and her friends immediately sign up to help with the fundraising.
The Space Agency NASA is holding a competition in which the winner will get an all-expenses-paid trip to NASA itself! All Keisha has to do is create a one-minute video explaining a science theory.
But there are only so many hours in the day, and Keisha soon discovers she can’t do both.
If she drops the fundraising, her friends will never speak to her again. If she drops the science competition, she could be throwing away the chance of a lifetime.
Which is the right decision to make?
Aimed at able Y5 and 6 readers, this book contains lots of black-and-white illustrations and runs to 96 pages. My 10-year-old daughter enjoyed it hugely, which you might think was a given, but she’s a harsh critic!
