Description

The border’s closed… No one can get into Scotland, just like no one can cross the channel… England is under the control of an authoritarian regime. Chips implanted in citizens’ skin at birth mean anyone can be tracked, anywhere. But Jake, who breaks out of the Academy dorm he’s been housed in, has decided to escape. To go off-grid. To join a small group of independent spirits determined to keep away from the government’s prying eyes. The Outwalkers. Only with them will Jake have a chance to reach Scotland – and safety.

`A heart-stopping adventure about a burning hunger for freedom that shakes the soul' - New Statesman ; `Gripping, action-packed, but with moments of tenderness, Shaw's first YA novel tackles contemporary issues, balancing them with timeless themes of love, loyalty and freedom' - Daily Mail
