Summary

Can you imagine a world with no screens? Don't miss the hilarious new 'what-if' adventure from best-selling author, comedian and presenter Danny Wallace. 

When 10-year-old Stella wakes up to discover a world full of blank screens, her family, town and in fact the whole world seems to have been thrown into chaos. And what about poor Grandma who is stranded at the other end of the country?

Cue a rollicking madcap road trip, full of driving disasters and family fallouts, as they set off on a rescue mission. And along the way Stella and her family discover that being away from screens might not be the Worst Thing Ever, and even though they might not be able to rely on technology anymore, they can rely on each other instead.

Don't miss The Luckiest Kid in the World - the brand-new comedy adventure from Danny Wallace. Pre-order now.
