about this item
The Fast and the Furious meets The Hunger Games in acclaimed author Chris Wooding’s blistering vision of the future.
Buckle up for a fast-paced, high-octane thrill ride!
Cassica and Shiara are best friends. They couldn’t be more different, but their differences work to their advantage—especially when they’re drag racing. Cassica is fearless and determined, making her the perfect driver for daring, photo-finish victories. Shiara is intelligent and creative, able to build cars out of scrap and formulate daring strategies from the passenger’s seat.
Now they’ve set their sights on the Widowmaker—the biggest, most anticipated, and most dangerous race of the year. The winners get a pass to a life of luxury and fame. The losers, more often than not, die in fiery explosions. And even if Cassica and Shiara survive the deadly three-day challenge... their friendship might be roadkill.
This breathless reimagining of extreme sports is perfect for fans of Mad Max: Fury Road and NASCAR.
