About The Event
An exclusive group chat. A deadly challenge. How far would you go to join?
Jayden Jones is missing. Everyone thinks he ran away. His best friend, Zoe Gale, knows they’re wrong. Zoe’s search leads her to The 17—a secret group chat, used by anonymous teens to blackmail the powerless. To join, you have to put on a mask and record yourself completing a challenge. The challenges are always illegal. Sometimes dangerous. Maybe deadly. Who are The 17? What have they done to Jayden? And what will they do to silence Zoe?
A rollercoaster of suspense and twists from the author of the Liars series.
As a teenager, Jack Heath spent his weekends making short films with his brother and their friends. Jack sometimes wrote the scripts, sometimes directed, often composed the soundtracks, and was once even a stunt driver. The films were dreadful. Luckily, Jack discovered books, which are much safer to make and don’t require a special effects budget. He is now the award-winning author of more than thirty action-packed novels for young people, which have been translated into eight languages. He lives on Ngunnawal Country in Canberra, Australia.
Will Kostakis is an award-winning author for young adults. His first novel, Loathing Lola, was published when he was just nineteen. It sold a whopping ten copies including the seven he bought himself. After a brief break to dabble in celebrity journalism and reconstruct his shattered dream, he returned with The First Third, which sold more than ten copies (possibly fifteen). He was awarded the 2020 Maurice Saxby Award by the School Library Association of New South Wales for service to children's and young adult literature and is an ambassador for the NSW Premier's Reading Challenge. His latest novel is We Could Be Something.
