Book Details

Connie doesn't stand a chance with Josh - not when he worships the wonderful Megan. Fed up, she writes a letter to the universe asking for Josh to fall in love with her, and for Megan's hair to fall out. The next day, Megan's hair is almost shaved off, and Josh is all over Connie like a rash. It's like a miracle - except it's totally unfair! Consumed with guilt, Connie has to put things right...

Highly readable, exciting books that take the struggle out of reading, Wired Up encourages and supports reading practice by providing gripping, age-appropriate stories for struggling and reluctant readers aged 11+, at a manageable length (80 pages) and reading level (9+). Produced in association with reading experts at CatchUp, a charity which aims to address underachievement caused by literacy and numeracy difficulties.
