Mack is a Grade One: Grade Ones are the best: they are the future. When he sees a Grade Three boy being attacked in the street, Mack doesn't help him. After all, Grade Threes don't matter. Then Mack starts hearing voices in his head. And the face in the mirror isn't his. What is going on? Part of the new Fresh Shades series, this book is exciting and fast-paced, keeping within the style of the Shades 2.0 series. It is perfect for reluctant teens who still want an exciting, unpatronising read that is relevant to their interests and concerns, but who don't want to read a longer novel. With a length of only 6,000 words, and filled with drama, this story will appeal to all reluctant teen readers.
