A pirate DJ is defying the agents of MIB by broadcasting music on a secret radio station. He invites GirlfriendZ to come and play a gig with him. Kelly, Charlotte, Eve, Yaz and Olivia think this is a great idea. But nothing is quite what it seems when they venture out onto the high seas. Kelly, Yaz, Olivia, Eve and Charlotte are GirlfriendZ - the world's most popular band. But they live at a time when music is forbidden and sinister MIB agents hunt down singers and musicians and take them to 'Harmony' camps where they are 'mind wiped'. This process is like stealing a music lover's soul! The girls go on the run. They play secret gigs for their fans and are determined to keep music alive. They discover that they can use music as a weapon against the MIB agents in the same way that vampire hunters can use garlic and crosses against vampires. But staying one step ahead of the MIB agents on their trail is no easy task and if they fall into MIB's clutches the girls will be silenced forever! Then it will be the day that music dies. 'Pirate DJ' is one in a series of six books. This series is fast paced action for reluctant girl readers aged 8 - 12 years with reading age of 9 - 10 years.
