2113. In Jenna Strong's world, ACID - the most brutal, controlling police force in history - rule supreme. No throwaway comment or muttered dissent goes unnoticed - or unpunished. And it was ACID agents who locked Jenna away for life, for a bloody crime she struggles to remember. The only female inmate in a violent high-security prison, Jenna has learned to survive by any means necessary. And when a mysterious rebel group breaks her out, she must use her strength, speed and skill to stay one step ahead of ACID - and to uncover the truth about what really happened on that dark night two years ago.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"There's an exciting and intriguing opening, lots of action, plenty of twists to keep you guessing, a dystopian future and a kick-ass heroine in Jenna Strong. So . . . Katniss Everdeen had better grab her bow, nock another arrow and prepare for a fight. She has a challenger" -- Dan Smith, author of The Child Thief
"In a word, ACID is brilliant . . . They coined the term 'page-turner' specifically for books like this . . . When you come out of a book wishing that you knew the heroine in real life, you know they're someone a bit special. I LOVED it. 10/10" * World of Children's Books *
"Looking for a book with a bad-ass, uber cool and smart female lead? You need to meet Jenna Strong. She won't take any crap and she will kick you down until you can take it no longer . . . This is one brilliant action adventure story . . . written with style and flare" * Eventide Reviews *
"Suspenseful . . . I would recommend this book to anyone" * Guardian Children's Books *
