Danny Bell's problems can be summed up in three simple words: Mum and Dad . His mother has left home, and his father spends all his time slumped in front of the TV, dreaming of the good old days when he was a nearly famous rock star. So when Danny hears about ParentSwap(tm), a secret London agency that helps kids find the parents they deserve, it doesn't take him long to contact it. Thanks to ParentSwap(tm), Danny's life is transformed. It's bye-bye to his misfit, loser family and hello perfect parents. But why does Danny have a niggling feeling that there is more to ParentSwap(tm) than meets the eye? Is it his imagination, or are the strange things that happen to him being somehow organized, directed - even watched over?
Terence Blacker's funny, clever, fast-moving story is set in a world just like our own - a world where reality is just another TV concept.
