This is London in the not too distant future and all the ‘troubled’ kids are on a new drug – Concentr8. This is the story of what happens when five of these young people no longer have access to the drug- they didn’t mean to get into this sort of trouble but now the whole world is watching them. A fairly quick read of a tense and totally frightening look at what could happen in London – or anywhere.
