A near-future war novel, where teenagers who escaped an attack on their special school become the last hope of freeing the British people.
Special education has never looked like this.
Ewan West has grown up being seen as nothing more than a defiant teenage screw-up with learning difficulties. Thankfully, he’s smart as hell in the battlefield. And now that the British population depends on him, his life might finally mean something.
Britain has been conquered, and the nation’s last hope are the Underdogs: a dozen fighters comprised largely of Ewan’s special school classmates, hidden in the abandoned countryside near the prison city of New London.
Ewan and his friends have much to fight against – inside and out – in order to free the British people.
After all, how do you defeat a clone army that outnumbers you by a million?
