Mac Slater 2: Imaginator




Mac Slater has discovered what he thinks is the coolest thing in New York City. Maybe even the world. But he's not allowed to tell a soul.

Imagine being offered an all-expenses-paid trip to New York City! It seemed like an impossible dream for Mac and his best friend, Paul. But they've just become coolhunters for a massively popular webspace and Mac is beyond excited. The catch: he has to find the Next Big Thing in NYC – or be sent home. Mac soon makes friends with Melody, an inventor with super-cool skates, who takes him to The Hive. It's an old boatshed where innovative kids are creating transport, sneakers and computer apps that are way more cutting edge than anything you can buy. And the Hive kids are about to test an invention that could change the world.

Mac's boss at Coolhunters is desperate for him to spill the beans, but Melody has sworn Mac to secrecy. He's found the coolest thing in NYC and he's not allowed to tell a soul!

Friends or fame. Which would you choose?

Praise for Mac Slater 2: Imaginator

“With a light touch, Tristan Bancks canvasses various young-adult issues; the love boredom threshold, the desire to change the world, the importance of friendships, and the allure of money and fame. He’s writing for the iPod generation clued up on the latest technological wizardry, so he speaks in their language – with abbreviations but without condescension.”

The Age

“This was a great read. Fast paced and perfect for teenagers everywhere.”

The Reading Stack

“Fast, funny and scary.”
