Steve has had enough – enough of cyber-bullies, enough of adults messing up the world. Sharp-witted Fran and her brother worry-wart Dan feel exactly the same. And so, along with his dog Nessie, Steve and the FranDan twins leave town in the dead of night to start on the biggest adventure of their lives…
But if things were bad before, they soon get worse. Much, much worse. Some seriously bad men show up. Why have Steve and Dan been overpowered and led away as prisoners? Why are they kept tied up in the barn of a disused farm?
Having managed to escape, and with no way to call for help, Fran knows it’s up to her to mount a one-woman rescue.

I love Ron Butlin books! This isn’t the first book of his to land on our doormat and I’m hoping it won’t be the last 😀
The story follows 3 kids, Steve, Dan and Fran, wanting to escape the bullies in their lives they think they can make it in their own with their handmade raft. I enjoyed how they worked as a team to get out of sticky situations and that they didn’ always do things right and made mistakes along the want, cos us kids don’ actually know EVERYTHING! Just dint tell the adults that 😂 I also enjoyed that fact that Fran is kinda the hero of the book, saving the boys from their prison. Their adventure was certainly exciting to read and had me page turning way after bedtime! I cant wait to see what Ron pens next.
