An exciting school trip goes horribly wrong in this thrilling adventure from master storyteller Malorie Blackman
Shaun has Sickle Cell Anaemia and while he's sometimes ill and things can be hard, mum and dad are convinced that he's never well enough to do anything fun. All he wants is to prove that he can do everything his friends can and that includes an exciting school trip to the Scottish highlands. When mum and dad finally agree, Shaun's hoping the trip can be his chance to prove just how strong he is. Unfortunately, his bullies have other ideas and this trip might turn out to be more dangerous than Shaun ever imagined.
A thrilling tale of adventure, bullies and a life or death situation.
