The Trial (Paperback)Laura Bates (author)
The author of Everyday Sexism and Men Who Hate Women returns to the YA genre with an unbearably tense thriller about a group of teens washed up on a desert island and the dark secret from the night before that has followed them there.
No matter how you try to hide it, the truth will always come out...
After a plane crash sees a group of seven teens washed up on a desert island, their first thought is survival. But a terrible secret from a party the night before has followed them ashore. Facing deadly threats and the fear of being stranded forever, they quickly discover that being the most popular kid in High School doesn't help when you're fighting to stay alive. As the island deals each of them a dangerous blow, it's clear that someone is looking for justice. Now survival depends on facing the truth about that party: who was hurt that night, and who let it happen?
From multi-award-winning author and gender equality activist, Laura Bates, this thought-provoking drama will start an important conversation and keep you guessing to the end.
