Chloe doesn't like - or trust - her step-dad. When she reads a cryptic email sent to him, she is both alarmed and intrigued. What can the message mean? In trying to find out, Chloe very nearly gets herself killed.

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.


'We liked this book as there was plenty of action and you never knew what was going to happen next. It was a quick read which was good and we didn't become bored. Chloe and Steve were pretty resourceful at getting out of dangerous situations. We would recommend this book to both boys and girls who want a short exciting story."
