Tom is a normal 16-year old boy living on a rough estate where gang culture and drug abuse are rife. He is on his way to visit Lucy (who he fancies) when he is involved in an assault and gets an iPhone dropped on his head from the 30th floor of an apartment block. Dangerously injured he spends several days in a coma and on awakening is informed that the surgeon could not remove all the bits of phone and he has chips embedded in his brain. Tom realises he has new superhuman powers and slowly learns how to access them and use them to try and change his world for the better.
Jolly good story.
