LoveReading View on Sleepless

It is summer time at Clerkenwell and the pressure is on. At this school for the academically elite, failure is not an option and exams are looming. Rich, smart and manipulative Tigs supplies the group of friends with a tiny pill to help them study. Sure, their focus is great in the revision weeks and during the actual exams but how can they switch off? And why are they all feeling so haunted? What are they becoming? Gripping and chilling with a convincing group of teens at its heart, this will send shivers down the spines of all those who know what pressure is.

Sleepless Synopsis

Young, rich and good‬źlooking, Izzy and her friends lead seemingly perfect lives. But exams
are looming – and at a school like Clerkenwell, failure is not an option. Luckily, Tigs has a
solution. A small pill that will make revision a breeze and help them get the results they
need. Desperate to succeed, the friends begin taking the study drug.
But as the side effects take hold they realize there are far worse things than failing a few
exams.
