Mac Slater Hunts the Cool

Mac Slater Hunts the Cool

For Ages: 8 - 12
Mac Slater isn’t the coolest kid in school, but he loves to take big risks. And it is one of his biggest—an attempt to jump over forty kids with a flying bicycle—that catches the attention of Tastemakers, a new Internet company looking for trend-spotting correspondents in up-and-coming cities like Mac’s beach front town. But the coolest girl in school is also up for the title of Tastemaker, and Mac has just one week to prove he has what it takes to get the job. Readers will love getting the inside scoop along with Mac on the newest technology and trends!
