It's not easy being the new kid at school. It's even harder when people want you dead.

Sam's been an outsider ever since he moved to London. A loner from the North who won't let anyone in. Former head girl and all round school-star Imogen had pretty much given up trying to befriend Sam before that night on Walthamstow high street. The night he wanted to tell her a secret, and someone tried to murder him.

But Sam isn't the only one whose life is in danger. Although she doesn't know it, Imogen is being watched. And if she doesn't give these people what they want, they'll silence her too. Permanently.

In the media

Excellent modern day thriller involving teens - plenty of action and excitement, plus thrills galore, and dozens of unanswered questions. Can't fault it, an excellent read.
Books Monthly
This is a tense, gritty and sometimes violent novel which keeps the reader guessing as the many secrets of the various characters are gradually revealed.
Blaxill has an enviable ability to bring [her characters] to life with vivid pen portraits.
