Hungry?  Need Lunch?
Want the perfect food to impress your girlfriend?
Then you need to see Matt, because Matt has an amazing talent.
It's called . . .

Matt - a.k.a. The Tuckshop Kid - is back!  And he's smaller than ever!  He's lost weight, is sort-of enjoying exercise and is going out with the perfect girl, Kayla, who loves food as much as he does.  He can hardly believe his luck.

But when Matt uncovers Kayla's secret, he realises that no one is perfect and sometimes problems can take on a life of their own.

From the author of the award-winning book The Tuckshop Kid comes the companion adventure about food, friendship and finding your way.
