Next month we’ll be publishing The Jamie Drake Equation – the new book by Christopher Edge, author of the highly acclaimed, Carnegie-nominated The Many Worlds of Albie Bright. This is another phenomenal novel for 9+ year olds, combining great storytelling, popular science, and lots of heart.
And today, we’re giving you the chance to win one of five proof copies of the book – a month before the book will appear in shops!
Jamie’s dad is an astronaut.This is a good thing, because how cool is that? And a bad thing, because he’s orbiting Earth and Jamie misses him badly.
Doing his homework at the observatory one night, Jamie inadvertently picks up a weird signal on his mobile phone. Could it be from an alien civilisation? Turns out, they’re the only ones who can help Jamie bring his father back. But how do you rescue an astronaut without heading into space yourself?
Combining action and adventure with cutting-edge space exploration and a compelling emotional core, this is truly awesome storytelling.
Here’s a look inside the book:
We’ll pick five winners in our proof giveaway competition at random on Friday – good luck!
