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.

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 *
