Axel's email starts with his letters on 10 October 1994. But other people use email, too, including Greek gods, Susan Tozer and Dr Claire's husband, for instance.
As well as Axel's letters other people wrote letters too, like Jenner and Lewis Carroll and even a very grown up letter from Amy's Boompa to an author. But you will have to put the pieces of this jigsaw puzzle together yourself.
Spying on people is strictly forbidden, but someone usedthe class's microcassette recorder to snoop on snippets of conversation.

- What reputation?
