About the Book

As school trips go, this one is pretty awesome . . .

When I was told we were going to London to study Living History, I thought they were joking. But here I am! Rafe Khatchadorian – global jetsetter!

Now all I need to do is find a way of avoiding the school bully, getting Jeanne Galletta to talk to me, and try not to get lost in London.

But things are never that simple. So fasten your seatbelts and hold on tight, because this could be a very bumpy flight . . .

Er…what else? Oh yes, almost forgot: your clothes, toothpaste, and stuff like that. In other words, the kind of stuff your mom packs for you.

But as this is a checklist, I guess you should really
your mom has packed your stuff. Otherwise it wouldn’t be much of a checklist.

On second thoughts, let’s live dangerously.

And…that’s it, really.

Checklist of things you probably
need on a transatlantic flight to London—but which come in handy anyway:
