When Harry's parents break the devastating blow that they can't afford to go away on holiday this year, Harry is devastated, especially when he hears all his friend's plans. So, when Harry tells his friend that he's been chosen as guest Trip Tester on the television holiday programme, Dream Holidays. Trouble is, his friends need PROOF! While he's visiting his local leisure centre he meets Cass, who helps him get together all the evidence he needs. However, can he pull it off? And what happens when the show is broadcast...?
