My Cousin is a Time Traveller

Brains in jars. Evil doppelgangers. You’d think Luke had seen it all by now. Still, he’s pretty shocked when a time-travelling cousin turns up to warn him that robots are taking over the world. It’s true that Luke’s dad has bought a lot of gadgets recently, and all of them are a bit glitchy. Is a machine from the future stalking Bromley and playing havoc with technology? Someone must stop the Rise of the Machines! Ideally, Zack. But Zack has given up his superpowers to live as a normal teenage nerd. So Luke must save the world AGAIN. Sigh…
