Owen Parker is obsessed with video games, none more so than the latest release of ‘War Games 5’. He’s been counting down the days until its release, only be horrified by its price! After failing to convince his parents to ‘loan’ him the money for the game, Owen decides to run away, hoping they’ll ‘reconsider’ funding Owen’s MUST HAVE. While out of the house, Owen sees a yard sale and is soon handed a free video game, ‘Chester’s Fairground’, by a very nervous looking teenager. He decides to return home where he can try out his new game by himself.
But this video game will change Owen’s life forever, as he enters the world of ‘Chester’s Fairground’ with others who have also entered the Fairground.
What surprises and secrets does Owen discover along the way? Well, you’ll have to read on to find out... but we should warn you – this tale is NOT for the faint hearted.
The story features a whole host of colourful and entertaining characters, including Owen’s parents, other children and, of course, the host of the Fairground itself, ‘Chester’.
