Mac Slater has discovered what he thinks is the coolest thing in New York City. Maybe even the world. But he's not allowed to tell a soul.
Imagine being offered an all-expenses-paid trip to New York City! Mac and his best friend, Paul, have just become coolhunters for a massively popular webspace and Mac is beyond existence. The catch: he has to find the Next Big Thing in NYC- or be sent home.
Mac soon makes friends with Melody, an inventor with super-cool skates, who takes him to The Hive. IT's an old boatshed where innovative kids are creating transport, sneaker and computer apps that are way more cutting edge than anything you can buy. And the Hive kids are about to test an invention that could change the world.
Mac's boss at Coolhunters is desperate for him to spill the beans, but Melody has sworn Mac to secrecy.
Friends or fame? Which would you choose?
