1. Prologue



London, England


JJ stood on the start line, waiting.


He shot off straight away, like a bullet out of a gun, racing along the grass track as fast as he could towards the tape at the other end. He didn't stop, sprinting down the track and burst through the tape, his arms wide in celebration.

Only when he had finished the race did JJ notice something was wrong. He stopped to listen. He couldn't hear anything. The whole field, full of parents, students and teachers alike, was completely silent.

JJ turned around. It was like someone had slowed time. The other runners were barely off the start line, and the tape he had just broken hung in the air, falling at a snail's pace towards the ground.

"What the hell?!" JJ exclaimed.



Manchester, England


Rosie ran. She ran as fast as she could, but the men were gaining on her. She'd come home from school as she normally did to find two masked men in balaclavas inside the flat, pointing a gun at her father. So Rosie did the only thing she could. She ran.

Looking behind her, she saw that the men were closer - they could almost grab her. But Rosie looked ahead again too late. She was at the corner of the corridor, and going too fast to slow down. She ran straight into the stomach high barrier that stopped people from falling, somersaulted over it, and, somehow, managed to grab on, leaving her dangling from the 30th floor.

"Alright girly." said the man in a deep, gravelly voice. "Either you climb back over and come inside with us, or I shoot you here and now. Take your pick."

"Neither." Rosie replied defiantly, and let go of the railing.

"What on earth?"



Cambridge, England


Lucy looked around, trying unsuccessfully to find her mum and sister in the bustling shopping centre packed with last-minute Christmas shoppers. They'd gone out to buy some last minute presents, and then Izzy had dragged her mum off to look at the new top she just HAD to get, giving Lucy the opportunity to go and buy the CD for her mum. But now she was lost.

Lucy stared over the railings at the crowd below, and suddenly there was an explosion of noise inside her head, as the thoughts of the hundreds upon hundreds of shoppers swamped her mind.

'Ooh, that looks nice. I wonder how much it is?'

'If she looks at one more pair of shoes...'

'Did that guy just pocket something?'

Lucy fell to her knees, crying in pain as she struggled to keep the voices from her head...
