  • Overview
    High up on a tower block roof, Jake writes magical and fantastic stories in secret. The boys think he's a wimp. But to the girls Jake's almost one of them. When the gang of boys actually arrive, though, everyone's in for a great surprise. To save himself, Jake weaves his best story yet. It is so good that the gang drop their tough trendy act and demand starring roles in the unfolding drama of mystery, danger, love... and the final encounter with Sparkleshark. Eventually they make a pact to meet up every week as a group and tell stories together.
