Leah Jackson - in detention. Then armed Year 9s burst in, shooting. She escapes, but the new Lock Down system for keeping intruders out is now locking everyone in. She takes to the ceilings and air vents with fellow student Anton, and uses her mobile to call out to the world. Outside, parents gather, the army want intelligence, TV cameras roll, psychologists give opinions, doctors advise - and they all want a piece of Leah.
Soon her phone battery is running out; and the SAS want her to reconnoitre the hostage area. But she is guarding a terrifying conviction. Her brother, Connor, is at the centre of this horror. Is he with the gang or just a pawn? Should she give him up? Surviving by wits alone, Leah wrestles with the terrible choices...
A tense, gripping story for young adults from best-selling author Sarah Mussi.
