Synopsis

On the Edge by Nigel Hinton

When Dillon's dad turns up unannounced to take him and his brother on a trip, Dillon isn't sure what to do - Mum's at work and they haven't seen Dad in months. Dillon's little brother Robbie is ecstatic to see his father and desperate to go. But something's not right. Why won't Dad let them use their phones? And why are their faces plastered all over the news? What exactly does Dad want with them? A dark, gritty drama.

Particularly suitable for struggling, reluctant and dyslexic readers aged 14+
