About this product
- DescriptionPlanet Earth is dying. The GeeZers, teenage eco-warriors, kw so and are fighting to save it. The King and the Prime Minister, though, believe otherwise; and they expect the Sticky Rock Cafes, developed by the Company of Dekaydence, to stop youngsters joining the GeeZers' struggle. But how can cappuccis, rock songs and designer trousers do that? Will, the King's great nephew, secretly supports the GeeZers, as he searches for the reason his brother was killed; Ruby Q Cooper dreams of becoming a journalist, to help the GeeZers and to find her mother, who abandoned her as a child; as for Piccolo, he wants only to become a musician. Will discovers more about the cafes than is safe and, pursuing their ambitions, all three teenagers soon find themselves inside the mysterious hi-tech world of Dekaydence - with its omius Tartan Guards, wild haggoids, Eye-Spies, a musician knighted for his services to loud music, and missing decorators; in a place where all their dreams are in danger of becoming nightmares.
- Author BiographySusie Cornfield had the idea for The Sticky Rock Cafe years ago, and it's been germinating ever since. Now it has emerged. As she says: It is about a real and dark issue, the death of the planet, and you can hardly get darker than that. But that's no reason why you can't also have humour. It's about life as we know it, about corruption, apathy, love and loss, music, and tea and coffee. A journalist whose career began on local newspapers in South London, Susie Cornfield joined the staff of The Sunday Times, where she was the paper's radio critic, and went on to become a columnist with the Sunday Telegraph Magazine. She's written for, among others, the Daily Mail, The Observer Magazine and the TV Times. She has also been a documentary researcher/writer for BBC TV and a presenter/producer for United Artists Cable TV. She wrote The Queen's Prize, the story of the National Rifle Association of Great Britain. She lives in South London, where she is writing a sequel to The Sticky Rock Cafe.
