The Rig

by Joe Ducie

Children's & YA Fiction eBooks of the Month

LoveReading Expert Review of The Rig

Winner of the Guardian / Hot Keys Young Writers Prize for writers between 18 and 25 The Rig is an action-packed teen novel set in a seriously secure prison for juvenile criminals. Will Drake is only fifteen but already he has a reputation for escaping from apparently inescapable places. As a result he is sent to The Rig, a purpose built structure surrounded by the Arctic Ocean and a very long way from any land. Will is cunning and he is brave. He is determined to escape despite the scarily sophisticated technology as well as the geography that is stacked against him. Joe Dulcie’s hard hitting style will appeal directly to teenage readers.

The Rig Synopsis

Fifteen-year-old Will Drake has made a career of breaking out from high-security prisons. His talents have landed him at the Rig, a specialist juvenile holding facility in the middle of the Arctic Ocean. No one can escape from the Rig. No one except for Drake...

 

After making some escape plans and meeting the first real friends of his life, Drake quickly realises that all is not as it seems on the Rig. The Warden is obsessed with the mysterious Crystal-X - a blue, glowing substance that appears to give superpowers to the teens exposed to it. Drake, Tristan and Irene are banking on a bid for freedom - but can they survive long enough to make it?
