Scholastic 2015 $18.00pb 286pp
Themes: Cold Fusion Machines/ Nuclear Energy/ Science Fairs
Three teenagers are working on developing something extra special for the upcoming Science Fair – a device that could solve the whole world’s energy problems. But, it comes with a price – someone may have to die to produce it. This is classic Des Hunt writing - a topical, believable and fast moving plot/ young people who speak as you would hear them in any playground or railway station (well, perhaps toned down a little), tension and a thought provoking ending. There is also a brown and white English Springer spaniel called TC. This will be popular reading for both boys and girls (and for Des’s many adult readers…)
Year 7 up/ Age 11 up
