Most people call me The Jackdaw. If they don't, I tell them they probably should. Meet fifteen-year-old Jack 'Jackdaw' Dawson, a young man with a serious plan. Daydreaming in class one day, Jack is hit over the head with an idea so blinding, so extraordinarily visionary and so downright fantastic he knows it can't fail. It's his ticket out of school - an app that will stop you from getting into trouble for daydreaming in class (ahem...). Fame, glory and tons of money seem just around the corner - but then Jack runs into a few problems. First of all, his warring parents are determined to push him into a career of their choosing (mum says office, dad says factory) without much thought as to what Jack might actually want. Secondly (and quite importantly) Jack doesn't know the first thing about making apps, and the only person who does wants nothing at all to do with Jack. That is, unless he does her a favour...which leads to someone else needing another favour, then another and another - until Jack finds himself sat upon a very precarious pile of promises to a whole bunch of random people. Can the Jackdaw complete his scheme, or is this too much for even his superior brain to cope with?
