Death by Detention


The edgy new Ali Sparkes thriller for older readers.

Also available as a digital ebook.



You know you’re having a bad day when you get hauled back into school by the head teacher to do a test, long after everyone else has gone home. It’s a stupid test in a stupid school… and another stupid student is there too, just to annoy you even more. But hey – it’s just one more loser day at Oakwood Academy. What did you expect?

Well… maybe not a bullet smashing through the window and dropping your head teacher to the floor. And definitely not a team of masked assassins sweeping the school to eliminate any witnesses. Now you’re stuck in the girls’ toilets with nowhere left to run…

Can bad boy Elliot survive if he calls on all the tricks he’s learned on Xbox combat games? Will bolshie Shania use her famous attitude to fight back against impossible odds? Or is this detention terminal..?
