Item description for Running Hot by Dreda Say Mitchell...
Overview Elijah 'Schoolboy' Campbell is running hot - he has just seven days to get out of a London underworld where bling, ringtones and petty deaths are accessories of life. He stumbles across a mobile phone, a chance to line his pockets, but it's marked property - and two of Hackney's notorious gangs are prepared to kill to get it.
Publishers Description What's the best thing about Hackney? The bus outta here! And that's exactly where Elijah 'Schoolboy' Campbell needs to be in a week's time, heading out of London's underworld. He's taking a great offer to leave it all behind and start a new life, but the problem is he's got no spare cash. The possibility of lining his pockets becomes real when he stumbles across a mobile phone. But it's marked property, and the Street won't care that he found it by accident. The Street won't care that the phone's his last chance to change his life. And he can't give it back because the door to redemption is only open for 7 days. Schoolboy knows that when you're running hot all it takes is one call, one voicemail, one text to disconnect you from this life - permanently. And getting deeper into his old lifestyle may mean that he never catches that bus.
