Hi! Thanks for dropping by...
A great way to become more safe, savvy, and social online by going on an adventure!
Tasked with doing a school project helping create a course in how to make good use of cyberspace, twins Beamer and Izzy Arora kick things up a notch. Together with their small group of internet friends that call themselves Team Savv-i, they set up a link with a remote Fijian school across the Digital Divide.
The only problem? Someone seems to sabotage them every step of the way!
Looks like they’ll have to team up and really get savvy if they want to figure out who, or what, is stopping them achieving their goal.

Head over to our special book blog. Mia and Izzy created most of the posts there. All about being savvy on the internet. Occasionally something different to spice it up! In this blog are also the hidden secret messages from the book Team Savv-i The 10 Secrets of Cyberspace!
The sequel to The 10 Secrets of Cyberspace is called Digital Whispers. The Team receives their first quest from Zeno as his 3D-world emissaries. He wants them to clean up the Internet, where fake news is filling his world fast. Our heros get embroiled in the news cycle and are thwarted by a mysterious and powerful character from the past. Will they be able to sort fact from fiction and save their reputation?
This story is about enhancing our organic bodies with silicon-based technology to gain super-powers, but how will this impact our relationships? The Team and their avatars gets drawn into a titanic clash between Zeno and Big-O vying for AI supremacy dragging most of the young people of the world into their battle. How will they solve this drama that is posing to threaten the existence of the real and virtual worlds?

This is the first story in a series of shorter (~30.000 word) illustrated novellas for MG readers. Each character-driven story will highlight an age relevant Internet issue. In The Net Trap, Team Savv-i will rescue Mia from her obsession with VR. Only her friends are savvy enough to realize she's trapped in her own fantasy and go virtual to find her living the life as Princess Aleela!
