Mixtape #1

First issue! Five left-of-the-dial, music-obsessed teens struggle through the rise and fall of Generation X and the Alternative Rock era of the 1990s. They learn that the bonds of friendship they thought were unbreakable have already begun to crack, and the music they thought they'd love forever has already started to fade.

This new children's novel by Derek Webb aims to engage girls in particular with science and engineering, as well as introducing younger readers to Key Stage 2 science principles, and the history of Brunel, while at the same time offering them a fun and adventurous read.
