Boy D'Battle's world falls apart when he is accused of attempted murder. He was to spend a week with his best friend Max, awaiting the highly anticipated, revolutionary Y-U2 4D WIZZY holographic computer. Instead, he is forced to stay with his mad Nana at Hurleybatts, her crumbling, haunted home in the middle of nowhere. Even worse - mobiles are forbidden because they disorientate the bees. Will Boy try to escape or will the mysterious surge or strength pumping up through his boots be enough to endure Nana's hair-raising and spine-chilling adventures?
