Description

Framed for a stranger's near-fatal overdose at a party, blackmailed into finding a mysterious flash drive everyone in school seems anxious to suppress and pressured by his shady best friend to throw an upcoming match, high school football player Charlie Dixon spends a frantic week trying clear his name, win back the girl of his dreams and escape a past that may be responsible for all his current problems. This book -- a bold stylistic departure for Bruised author Skilton -- captures the tone, style, mood, dialogue, word play and irony of the best crime fiction, while also telling a high stakes story of high school pressure gone tragically awry.
