Product description

Aidan learns some tough lessons about life (and staying alive) in a hard-as-nails thriller to make your blood pressure soar. If you picture the perfect teen lifestyle, you probably picture something like Aidan’s. He’s pretty much got it all. A happy home in leafy suburbia. Heaps of designer gadgets. The gorgeous Emily hanging on his every word. So a trip up North with Mum to visit his dying grandad is hardly top of Aidan’s to-do list. But this isn’t just a farewell visit. There are secrets Aidan needs to be told. Who is the dodgy guy driving round in a BMW, for one thing? Why is he so attracted to Jade, who is pregnant by a local bad lad? And how will Aidan cope when he’s thrust head-first into a dark world of violence, drugs and crime? Nothing in his cushy world ever prepared him for this...
