Written & designed by computer game creators, an interactive new mystery novel for teens Sean Stewart & Jordan Wiesman
Untangle a web of mystery and Chinese myth with this innovative, page-turning novel. Cathys Book includes an interactive evidence pack of clues, documents and photos, and working website addresses.
When Cathy's boyfriend breaks up with her, she sets out to discover what's really going on in his life. The tangled web starts with a mysterious bruise on her arm that appears to be a spider bite but could be something more sinister, and leads her into the depths of Chinatown, ancient myth and high-tech misdeeds.
For ages 14+
Cathys Book is a compelling mystery adventure, written in diary form, with strong, well-defined characters and an unexpected twist. But the reader can also choose to follow interactive clues, in the form of documents, codes and websites - blurring the line between fiction and reality!
