AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'The Rules of Cool is about a hippie kid called Mac who lives in a double-decker bus with his mum, who's a firetwirler. 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.' (Author's blurb)
