A fast-paced adventure set in a world from which adults have been strangely removed and a randomly thrown together group of misfit teenagers have to try to survive. There’s a giant flash as the teacher leaves the detention room. When the kids he leaves behind step out into the school corridor there is no-one to be seen. When they leave the school and head into town they discover they are alone. Where is everyone? And what should they do next? A gripping story of survival and self-reliance in which the kids survival depends on working together and in showing a kind of courage none of them had ever believed they possessed.

Synopsis

Shift by Jeff Povey

Get ready for one apocalyptic detention. These misfits are going to save the world!

Meet Rev, Billie, the Ape, Johnson, GG, Carrie, the Moth and Lucas, a motley crew of bickering teens who find themselves totally alone in the world after a strange power surge hits their classroom during detention. With no answers as to why or how the rest of the world has disappeared, the mismatched group is soon facing a bigger nightmare than they could ever imagine… Standing between them and the only way home are lethal duplicate versions of themselves, super powered teenagers who will kill anyone who gets in their way. Our unlikely heroes must somehow work together to save themselves… or they'll never see home again.
