London is flooding, and it's getting worse; already day-to-day life is breaking down. Todd needs to get away - and not just from the floodwater. He was a witness in the trial of a drugs gang, and now they are after him. Can Todd find safety from the water and stay one step ahead of the Turner gang?

Part of the Fresh Shades series, this book is exciting and fast-paced, keeping within the style of the Shades 2.0 series. It is perfect for reluctant teens who still want an exciting, unpatronising read 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.
