Robbie and his brother Jim find an old car up at Grange Farm. It's abandoned during the week, so soon they are regular joyriders. It's great fun, but then they are witnesses to what definitely looks like criminal activity. They are faced with a dilemma: should they report what they have found and reveal their joyriding, or keep quiet?

Part of the new 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.
