Product Description
 
Sixteen-years-old Liam is naturally bright and sharp, but directionless. He's a thrill seeker by nature until one night a stunt goes horribly wrong and his best friend is killed. Liam is devastated. Fast forward a year and Liam is training to be a soldier, desperate to forget his past and wanting to move on and make something of his life. The new recruit training is not just tough, it's grueling and almost breaks him but he makes it. Before long, he's in the unforgiving terrain of Afghanistan. In the heat of battle against an enemy who most certainly want him dead - he's faced with his past and realises he has more to fear than just enemy soldiers...
