A Kirkus Reviews Starred Selection and 5-Star IndieReader Approved Pick
When a ruthless criminal mastermind with dark intentions takes a prestigious New England prep school hostage, Cade Dixon faces a choice: As a working class townie worth nothing in their perverse bidding war, he can save himself or try to stop them. It would have been an easy choice too - save his own skin - except for one thing.
It would mean leaving behind Kira.
Soon, with the fate of the student body left to them, Kira and Cade must sacrifice their own safety and attempt to outwit a daunting and deadly group of criminals.
Cade was never dying to be a hero.
But he just might.
If you ever wondered what a Jack Reacher or Jason Bourne type might've been up to in high school, Cade Dixon provides the answer in this breezy Young Adult thriller with a unique heist story that will appeal to readers of all ages.
