A boy who has lost everything joins a brutal race to win the chance to escape his dying world. The Hunger Games meets The Road in a stunning debut novel from a powerful new voice in YA fiction.

*Shortlisted for the Branford Boase award 2016*

Adam Stone wants freedom and peace.
He wants a chance to escape Blackwater, the dust-bowl desert town he grew up in. Most of all, he wants the beautiful Sadie Blood.

Alongside Sadie and the dangerous outsider, Kane, Adam will ride the Blackwater Trail in a brutal race that will test them all, body and soul. Only the strongest will survive.

The prize? A one-way ticket to Sky-Base and unimaginable luxury.

And for a chance at this new life, Adam will risk everything . . .

Good luck - and may you live to see the sky...
