They make a bad decision. The boys pedal up to the old lady's parked car and commit a drive-by soaking, before pedalling away as quickly as they can.Revenge isn't all that's on Ziggy's mind, however, as he spots an impossibly cool, black-clad, pale-skinned girl on the bus.

When Ziggy discovers that the old lady suffered a heart attack after the drive-by and subsequently died, he and his friends are totally guilt-stricken. Should they keep their involvement a secret between themselves? When Ziggy wakes up in a cold sweat in the middle of the night, feeling a presence in his room, he believes that he's being haunted and the strain starts to show . . .An incredibly dramatic, pacy novel about getting in over your head, guilt and facing up to your decisions.
