It is November 1983 and young Billy Twist and his whiz kid friends are about to discover the exciting new world of microcomputers and gaming. Full colour hardback edition.

Billy and his friends start on their journey but run into some obstacles as they try to setup a computer video gaming club.

Billy is a typical kid growing up in the 80s, the age of microcomputers and video games. An age of wonder for teens and even adults alike. A nostalgic story of ZX Spectrums, Commodore 64s, Amstrads and Ataris.

If I didn't grow up in the 80s I would be jealous of everyone that did - because the 80s rocked!
