I slipped backwards and suddenly…there I was! Suspended. In mid-air. ‘Help!’

From climbing and abseiling to canoeing and the Crazy Bucket Race, the adventure holiday which Tim’s dad sends him on promises to be full of action. There’s just one problem: Tim is hopeless at sports of every kind. How on earth will he survive the horrors of a week packed with healthy activity? And even worse, how will he survive having to bunk with bullying Giles? Find out in a tale full of cliffhanging drama, big surprises and rib-cracking chuckles.
