Street Runners by Matthew WhymanIf you're ever in great danger, with nowhere else to turn, maybe you'll find help in the world beneath your feet...That's what happens to Yoshi, one night in London's Chinatown. Fleeing from a mystery pursuer, the boy finds himself in a sprawling, subterranean network of tunnels, tracks, vaults and lost waterways. It's also home to a band of street runners schooled in modern magic - the art of illusion and trickery. With help from his new friends, Yoshi uncovers his own vital part in a mission to tap the ancient forces underpinning the capital. But can he pull off the performance of a lifetime before his past catches up with him, or will life on street level fall under a dark and dangerous spell?
