"Funny, zany, the right amount of cheeky and answers that BIG question - what is really going on with 'Boy Band hair?'" - Jenny Pearson, bestselling author of The Super Miraculous Journey of Freddie Yates
Four best friends, two boybands, and an evil uncle with a monstrous secret - what could possibly go wrong? KID NORMAL meets BRITAIN'S GOT TALENT in this hilarious new series for 8+ readers.
This story begins with a snoring pug, a forgetful grandma, and the hero of this adventure in a really bad mood. There is also a goose on the loose. We just wanted to warn you.
Jamie McFlair's favourite band got a slot performing on the country's biggest talent show, but it went wrong thanks to Barry Bigtime (in an 'incident' involving a chocolate milkshake and worn underpants - don't ask).
Barry is a music big shot, all round nasty man...and Jamie's Uncle. The next day, he launches his own massive new band and Jamie smells a rat. With the help of three trusty best friends - popular Daisy, no-nonsense Jenners, and timid Mel - Jamie vows to uncover Barry's dastardly plan.
But Jamie doesn't know about BARRY'S SECRET. A secret that is TERRIBLE and SHOCKING and VERY STRANGE. There's something hidden in Barry's basement - a machine that is the key to his musical success. But what happens when the boyband generator goes wrong? We'll give you a clue: it is NOT GOOD and THE ENTIRE WORLD is at risk. Can Jamie stop Barry Bigtime before it's too late?
