Description

Living high in a crumbling state tower block is no barrel of laughs. Throw in parents more interested in crack than they've ever been in you, and life can seem barely worth the living. Especially when they sell the tools you've paid for out of your own savings, to feed their habit. Especially when they turn you in to the police, rather than take the rap for their own wrongdoings. No wonder you'd rather be someone else.

This fast-paced read is dynamic and gripping, perfect for teen readers who want all the characteristics of a long novel, dealing with teenage issues and tough topics, in a strong, condensed book. From a series written by some amazing authors, this book is everything a reluctant reader would want to get them engaged. Note: this book contains some strong language, graphic scenes and/or tough topics, so is only suitable for older YA readers.
