Up to Speed is a funny, moving and captivating tale about a boy and a girl and what it’s like to be the odd one out. Have you ever met a person who is a little unusual? Someone whose mind seems to work a bit differently? Who surprises you? Who is funny and also fun to laugh at? That’s what Barnaby is like. Jade has marvelled and laughed at him, been surprised and confused by him. But he has also made her feel small. And she knows exactly how to get him back…

Polly and Owen have nailed it. Both in successful careers and wildly in love, they feel ready to take on the world – and with Polly’s new promotion at work, it seems like life can’t get much better.
But when a mysterious new technology, promising a break from the daily grind, creeps into everyone’s phones, their world is turned upside down. As the line between physical and digital rapidly dissipates, and as the population begins to rebel, Polly and Owen are forced to question whether their definitions of reality and freedom are the same.
Presenting a disturbing but compassionate take on our potential digital future, and what it might mean for ‘life’ as we know it, Girl in the Machine is a timely exploration of technology in a world that’s falling apart.

“It’s not a big problem. It doesn’t affect his day to day life.
Mrs Gillespie still gives him detention, Sarah Hargreaves still threatens to smash his face in, and Mr Bartnik the shop keeper still won’t let him forget that he owes 10p for bottle of milk he bought over a year ago. But Robbie has started noticing that people bump into him a lot in the street. That nobody ever really looks at him – they always look to the side or a metre behind, as though they’re not quite sure exactly where he is. And this morning, the longer he looked in the mirror the less and less he could see of himself. …..And so begins Robbie’s journey on a very weird day..”
