Is There Anybody There?
Scott, Jaz, Lee and Mo get bored of scary videos at Hallowe’en. Mo tells them about how Ouija boards work using the power of suggestion, so the four friends decide to make up details about a fake ‘ghost’ to see if their collective imaginations will create ‘messages’ from it. The messages start to come, all right. And then so do the accidents… 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, or those with English as an additional language, 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.
