Further confessions of Georgia Nicolson
10.00am I persuaded Jas to come to church with me to thank God for making Dad have his shoes blown off and also for giving me a Sex God as a plaything.
When I got to Jas's house she was sitting on her wall in the shortest skirt known to humanity. She leaped off the wall. Her skirt was about four centimeters long.
I said,"Is it a long time since you went to church, Jas?" and she said,"It's OK, I'm wearing really big knickers."

'Real life' or the death-defying adventures of the Greek myths, with their heroes and monsters, daring deeds and narrow escapes - which would you choose?

But when he logs into The Legendeer, the game his dad is working on, he can be a hero. He is Theseus fighting the terrifying Minotaur, or Perseus battling with snake-haired Medusa.
The trouble is The Legendeer is more than just a game. Play it if you dare.
