Reading Age: 8 Interest Age: Teen
Could you disconnect from your phone for six weeks? Six weeks without sharing photos, without group messages, without being kept in the social‑media loop?
An eccentric entrepreneur has challenged Esther’s year group to do just that, and the winners will walk away with £1,000. For Esther, whose dad and sister live thousands of miles away in New York, the prize might be her only chance to afford flights for a visit … But can she really stay disconnected long enough to win?
