Jake and Matt have trained hard for a weekend hiking with the school. They've got the gear, they've got fit - and they've got homework: something 'to keep their minds occupied' while walking. But Jake is more occupied with finishing first and beating Lee Harper.
The weekend careers towards a dramatic climax - and Matt returns to school with his homework done in a way he could never have imagined. A heartstopping tragedy. Particularly suitable for struggling, reluctant and dyslexic readers of 12+
