By Sue Whiting

A story about a boy staying with his prickly cactus-devotee relatives who discovers one of their plants is not only precious and rare – it’s totally freaky …

Three weeks with the rellies at Cactus Court. No City Skate. No mates. No fun. Could life get much worse for Jayden? Of course it could. And what’s more, it did.

  • Lightning Strikes is a new series of fast-paced and funny stories with eyecatching cover effects
  • With wide leading, generous type and plenty of informal text types, this series is perfect for kids who haven’t yet been “struck” by the reading bug.
