A fast-paced rite-of-passage from the bestselling author of Deadly Unna?.
Growing up with the famous Bali surf at his back door, sixteen-year-old Taj had an idyllic childhood – until ten years ago when his father was arrested for smuggling drugs.

When an execution date is set, Taj is left with one course of action- bust his dad out of jail and hightail it back to Australia.
