King of middle-grade Gordon Korman’s new standalone novel full of mystery, humour, friendship . . . and alligators! Now in paperback.

Jett Baranov is Silicon Valley’s number one spoiled brat. The son of a billionaire tech genius, he has everything money can buy, which means he’s in the habit of getting into a lot of trouble. When one of his stunts brings in the US Air Force, Jett’s father sends him off to Oasis Mind and Body Wellness center where he’ll be unplugged and disconnected from the outside world.

Of course Jett hates it instantly and does his best to get himself kicked out. But it’s not as easy as he thinks. When Grace Atwater rescues a defenseless lizard, Jett is drawn into caring for the little guy with the help of Grace, Tyrell Karrigan and Brooklyne Feldman. But things aren’t as they seem at Oasis. There’s something going on with the head meditation pathfinder, Ivory — something dangerous that threatens the future of all the guests at Oasis. And Jett is the only one who can put a stop to it.

Told in Gordon’s now classic multi-voice style, Unplugged combines mystery, comedy, friendship . . . and don’t forget about the crocodiles!

Praise for Unplugged:

“Korman has absolutely mastered the formula for kid-centered rebellious adventure, not to mention capturing the social zeitgeist of the moment.” — CM: Canadian Review of Materials
