Summary "Imagine a WebTV show coming to your school and asking you to be a Coolhunter! Imagine being sent to far-flung corners of the globe, hunting cool. Imagine going from zero to hero in a split-second and finding that all the weird, totally un-cool things you like are suddenly setting the world on fire ... Mac's just crashed the latest prototype of his flying bike in front of practically the whole school. So when the creators of Coolhunters approach him and tell him he's an Innovator, Mac thinks they're crazy. I mean, Mac lives in an old bus with his hippie mum. He doesn't have a TV, let alone a mobile. But Tony and Speed say he's so uncool he's, like, cool. They offer Mac a trial. He'll vlog all the cool stuff coming out of Kings Bay for a week. If he wins he'll travel the world, uncovering stuff he loves and reporting it via Coolhunters, a massive online space dedicated to the coolest things on earth. But hunting cool ain't easy. Mac's opponent, Cat DeVrees, wants the gig real bad and she'll do just about anything to get it."--Provided by publisher
