Get ready for this “adrenaline-spiked adventure” teenage novel by Chris Wooding &  jacket art by KAKO — it’s finally out of the vault! Huge thanks to Scholastic, Inc. & Christopher for giving Kako such a perfect cover for him. More about the book below!

“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.”
