'Gripping and surprising. I gulped it down' – Sarah Crossan
An unstoppable new title from Stephen Davies, set in NY with all the grit and fast pace of the unstoppable city and an irresistible trash talking herorine.
Leah Baxter is a genius. She's a few wins away from becoming a junior chess grandmaster, and her life is on course to achieve everything her mom and coach want for her.
But Leah is at stalemate - grieving for her father, and feeling suffocated. She decides to make the ultimate sacrifice and quit chess. But chess doesn't want to quit her.
Soon Leah discovers her new gambit: chessboxing, a dangerous hybrid sport which will test her body and mind to their limits. Can the pawn become the queen?
