Mac doesn't have a mobile phone or even have the web at home. But he's an inventor and, after a disastrous trial of a flying bike he's been working on, he's approached by two guys from Coolhunters, a hot webspace getting a million hits a day. They want him to trial as one of their featured coolhunters. Mac's hometown of Kings Bay is a world capital of cool these days and the coolhunter guys want someone on the ground there. They think Mac's so uncool that he might actually be cool. They reckon he might see stuff that other people don't, that he might be an Innovator. The only problem is that Mac's opponent in the trial, Cat DeVrees - angry, cold-blooded and the hottest girl he knows - wants the coolhunting gig real bad, and she'll do just about anything to get it.'

'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?' (Publisher's blurb)
