No matter how you try to hide it, the truth will always come out . . . After a plane crash sees a group of seven teens washed up on a desert island, their first thought is survival. But a terrible secret from a party the night before has followed them ashore. Facing deadly threats and the fear of being stranded forever, they quickly discover that being the most popular kid in High School doesn't help when you're fighting to stay alive. As the island deals each of them a dangerous blow, it's clear that someone is looking for justice. Now survival depends on facing the truth about that party: who was hurt that night, and who let it happen? From multi-award-winning author and gender equality activist, Laura Bates, this thought-provoking drama will start an important conversation and keep you guessing to the end. Praise for The Trial: 'While the climactic "trial" provides a satisfying political edge, the most gripping passages involve the simple struggle for survival.' - Financial Times 'Laura Bates is one of the most important feminist voices we have and The Trial is engaging and clever, thought-provoking and thrilling. I inhaled it in one sitting.' - Louise O'Neill, author of Asking For It 'A book that teens and young adults should be adding to their contemporary mystery and feminist reading lists' - Culture Fly 'Laura Bates has written another unputdownable (I mean this, I had to give up on getting anything done to consume this story) novel, which as you can imagine asks some important questions too.'- Lucy-Anne Holmes, editor Women on Top of the World ; 272 pages; Published: 16/09/2021
