An outrageous theft. A huge reward. Two friends on the run. An uproariously funny, action-packed new adventure about the power of courage, standing up for what's right, and fizzy drinks, from the award-winning author of Kick.
Queenie de la Cruz stares out at the ocean and dreams of a world beyond her small-town. She's about to get her wish...
When the priceless recipe to the world's most popular drink - thought to be lost forever - washes up at her feet, Queenie's life instantly changes. Everyone wants it, and with a $10 million bounty on her head, Queenie's soon on the run.
Pursued by bounty hunters, black-ops helicopters and angry mobs, Queenie's journey involves a mad scientist, a tin foil hat-wearing conspiracy theorist, a crocodile and an unlikely new friend, Todd.
But being on the run also makes Queenie begin to see the world around her more clearly - a world in which a big corporation's excess has left the planet covered in its plastic bottles and waste. Suddenly, the home she always dreamed of escaping, and the ocean she grew up with and took for granted, don't seem so bad.
If Queenie and Todd can bring down the bad guys, maybe she can go back home and make a difference...
