what’s the trilogy about?

Life for Alice and the five other children living on the remote Scottish island of St Kilda was challenging enough, but when the strange C-Bean Mark 3 shows up and they discover only Alice can control it, their whole world changes. The C-Bean transports them far and wide to New York, Australia and the Amazon rainforest, and soon leads them to realise there are forces at work that have put the whole planet in jeopardy. Caught up in a dizzying whirl of time travel, where they arrive by accident in the past and are later imprisoned against their will in the future, Alice and her friends find themselves at the mercy of a motley crew of animals, prisoners, cyborgs and orphans. It’s only when her desperate attempts to get back to her own time seem doomed, that Alice finally sees the truth and finds the courage to act.
