'My name is Jon. I am sixteen years old and ready to fight the war on terror.' A shocking, topical thriller which explores individual morality and is bound to get readers thinking.
Jon knows what he has to do. If he isn't strong, everyone in his school is going to die. Or so he's been told by Jeremiah, the manipulative, deluded leader of the Brotherhood of Hebetheus - a group of lonely, damaged boys who have started a new religion that makes them feel invincible. But when the boys become convinced that a classmate is involved in a plot to blow up the school, they know they must act. No one will believe them and so they lay their own plans. Plans that lead to theft, kidnap, a media frenzy, and ultimately bloodshed.
