Untold stories of British and Jamaican history come to life in the author's new YA novel, where you can follow the true story of a slave uprising in Jamaica in 1760. Lead character Moa is awoken in the middle of the night by one of the rebels who informs him when the revolt will begin, and the clock is ticking.
