Emmy is brilliant at the computer game, Illusory Isles. Her avatar is a powerful fire elemental with magma claws and flaming breath. When Emmy's gaming video gets a front-page feature, thousands of devoted fans flock to watch her battle the ultimate online baddie, the Mulch Queen herself. Life at school is the exact opposite. Emmy is friendless and bullied by Vanessa AKA the Queen of Mean. To Vanessa and her gang, Emmy is a weirdo with bad handwriting, horrible fashion sense and no dad. But if Emmy can take on the Mulch Queen online, perhaps she can also find a way to take on Vanessa too? Emmy decides to level up and solve this challenge alone. But then Emmy discovers that Mulch Queens and Mean Queens are much easier to face when you have a little help from new friends . . .

MEDIA REVIEWS
Such a positive story about gaming; original and heart-warming. * Julia Green, author of The Children of Swallow Fell *
A sensitively-handled portrayal of bullying; deeply authentic & perfectly-pitched for its MG audience. * Kirsty Applebaum, author of The Middler *
Harvey tackles themes of anxiety, gaming, friendship, working class backgrounds, step families and bullying. It's an important read that so many children will be able to connect to and discuss within classroom too. Should be in every school! * A. M. Dassu, author of Boy, Everywhere *
A really sensitive exploration of bullying (but also managing to be a page turner). With added gaming joy! * Louie Stowell, author of The Dragon in the Library *
A perfect MG family drama with bags of energy and humour. * Elen Caldecott, author of The Marsh Road Mysteries *
Written with delicate precision, sensitivity and empathy, Harvey has crafted a thoughtful, moving narrative that echoes the likes of R. J. Palacio, Stewart Foster and Zanib Mian. * Bluebird Reviews *
A fantastic story about gaming, friendship and standing up for yourself. * Library Girl and Book Boy *
This is a pacey read that will go down a storm in KS2 classrooms. * Books for Topics *
An authentic portrayal of bullying which is also very readable, relatable and empowering. * BookTrust *

There used to be a rhyme that ended with the phrase, ‘but words will never hurt me.’ So untrue. Bullying can take many forms. This is a book about gaming – and bullying. It’s about people’s talents and how important... More
