It's the middle of World War II, and Jack dreams of flying real planes in battle. He's the youngest of a group of cadets, chosen by the RAF to learn to fly gliders. But star cadet Cecil Pirbright thinks Jack's too young to learn. And when Jack makes a mistake, Cecil decides that Jack must pay for it.

Republished as a new edition, this book is one of the Shades 2.0 series. This book is perfect for reluctant teens who still want an exciting, unpatronising story that is relevant to their interests and concerns, but who don't want to read a longer novel. With a length of only 6,000 words, and filled with drama, this story will appeal to all reluctant teen readers.
