A traditional adventure-mystery with plenty of thrills. This great romp of a tale feels like stumbling on some thrilling piece of one’s past – a touch of the Hardy Boys, a hint of Tom Sawyer – yet finding that it’s updated, and works even now ... A whitewater ride of a book'
Action-packed adventure in which three friends bite off a whole lot more than most kids can chew when they take flight from a bully. Sharp, snappy style [makes for] a pacey page-turner [which] will surely appeal to 10+ year-olds with a thirst for high octane escapades'
About the Book
Steve has had enough - enough of cyber-bullies, enough of adults messing up the world. Sharp-witted Fran and her brother worry-wart Dan feel exactly the same.

Much, much worse. Some seriously bad men show up. Why have Steve and Dan been overpowered and led away as prisoners? Why are they kept tied up in the barn of a disused farm?Having managed to escape, and with no way to call for help, Fran knows it's up to her to mount a one-woman rescue.
