Im London einer nahen Zukunft wird das Medikament Concentr8 an auffallige Jugendliche verteilt, um jedes unerwunschte Verhalten einzudammen. Troy, Femi, Lee, Karen und Blaze nehmen es schon, solange sie denken konnen. Sie sind keine richtige Gang, und sie sind auch nicht auf der Suche nach Arger, aber als die Verteilung von Concentr8 auf einmal versiegt und als eines heien Sommertags die Aufstande in der Stadt heftiger ausbrechen als je zuvor, kidnappen sie einen Mann und schleppen ihn in ein Lagerhaus. Im Verlauf der folgenden sechs Tage beginnen sie - beginnen wir - zu verstehen, warum es so kommen musste. Nominiert fr den YA Book Prize und die Carnegie Medal 2016
