Four teenagers stumble on a toxic waste spill but nobody takes them seriously because they come from a home for troubled youngsters....

This is now official I really love Dale Mayer's books. She rehabilitated me from not reading YA books completely.

What an exciting read. A Thriller/Mystery I enjoyed from page one. I love this genre in general immensely This book had it all. The perfect plot, strong characters, flowing story line that kept you on the edge. I could not put down the book, it was just that good. In the future I would definitely recommend this authors books to all lovers of YA. A good clean read for the young adults
