POSTER BOY by N.J. Crosskey

Broadcast live, Rosa Lincoln takes to the stage at her brother’s memorial service with a bomb concealed beneath her clothes. Being in Jimmy’s shadow was never easy, even when he was alive, but in death he has become a national hero.

When she crosses paths with the enigmatic Teresa, she discovers that those she has been taught to view as enemies may not be the real villains after all.

The lies need to be stopped, and Rosa intends on doing just that.

'Completely gripping. Intensely disturbing. Terrifyingly real!' Liz Lawler, author of Don’t Wake Up
