Magna Carta: The most famous legal text in history.
The foundation of the rule of law.
When Huckleberry Jones is packed off by his parents from New York to a camp for “exceptional teenagers” at Oxford University, his first question is: Why? But meeting the beautiful, enigmatic Kat might just make his time there worthwhile. Together with new friends Mei and Tshombe, he discovers that young people from four continents can have more in common than their differences.
Then Huck finds himself trapped in a mystery linked to an 800-year-old parchment—and solving it could cost him his life.
“A whip-smart psychological thriller with an atmospheric Oxford setting, anonymous notes, a mystery in a clock tower, and a twist you won’t see coming.”
Pip Harry, author of Because of You
“It’s ‘Stand by Me’ meets ‘The Da Vinci Code’. They need to hurry up and make the movie!”
Tony Wilson, author of 1989: The Great Grand Final
“Chesterman uses action and vivid descriptions of the characters’ feelings to keep readers engaged. The novel starts methodically, laying the foundation for the eventual plot twist. The story picks up speed in the latter half of the book, launching the reader at full speed toward the unpredictable ending.” — School Library Journal
