Hello There, Do You Still Know Me?

Booktalk: It’s summertime and Madison McGee’s best friends, Violet and Noah, join her in Costa Rica, where she’s staying with Rosalie Claire. Their dreams of lazy sunny beach days come to a screeching halt when Madison’s grandmother, Florida Brown, unexpectedly shows up on their doorstep. Dangerously ill with a mysterious ailment, Florida needs help. But the magic in Rosalie Claire’s fanny pack has stopped working. Only one person knows how to revive it – Grandma Daisy. The only problem? She’s been dead for five years.
Enter the MegaPix 6000. Together, Madison and her friends have to figure out a way to turn the magic TV into a time machine so they can visit Grandma Daisy and save Florida.
Snippet: We’d just slapped down a round of Crazy Eights when Mike unbuckled his seat belt.
“Bathroom break. Don’t worry, the plane’s on autopilot.” He made his way back to the restroom.
Rosalie Claire had just won the first hand with an eight of hearts when a robot voice blared from the cockpit’s computer.
“System overload. System overload.”
We heard Mike’s muffled yells through the closed bathroom door. “What’d it say?”
“System overload,” Rosalie Claire shouted back. “That can’t be good.”
The computer boomed out its warning again. System overload. System overload.
We heard the toilet flush, followed by a sharp rattle. The bathroom door was shaking.
“It’s locked!” Mike banged on the handle.
Rosalie Claire was about to unclip her seatbelt to go help him when the cards flew across the table and fell to the ceiling. Chocolates and gummy worms sailed through the air.
The plane had spun upside down.
